Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Nice quiet country ride

June, 2022 by 75hrbw4yxk

This trail is great for those looking to do some peaceful quiet miles. Rarely very many people on the trail, and those you do see become regulars you’ll stop and talk to. Trail is nicely maintained, the only negative is that once you pass through Jamestown there are a lot of sticks and debris on the path several days after any storm or windy day. That area just doesn’t ever see much traffic and dead ends into a field. A real shame they didn’t complete the extra couple miles to the outlet mall, cause you are truly riding to no where. You’ll ride next to an airfield that is a very active skydiving park, go through a small town ( stop at Orion coffee), and do many miles of shaded country. All in all, great for a relaxed peaceful ride.

Buck Creek Trail (OH)

A hidden gem in Springfield

June, 2022 by guslipp

I cycle the Old Reid Park / Pumphouse Rd to the Simon Kenton section of the train on a regular basis. It is very common to see deer, rabbits, Blue Herron and ducks along this area. Also will see kayakers on the creek during the summer and fall months. Going from east to west the trail forks at the 2nd rail road trestle. Bear left to go to the Little Miami and Sinon Kenton trails. Bearing right will take you under the bridge and toward Cliff Park and Springfield Art Museum. This will put you just north of the downtown and the southern edge of Wittenberg University.

Do note some sections of the trail may be muddy after heavy rains.
Recommend parking at the ranger station at the reservoir or art museum .

Wright Brothers Huffman Prairie Bikeway

Varied terrain but no steep hills.

June, 2022 by mariep5454

I love this trail. The road going up the hill to the airforce museum is my version of the Philadelphia steps that Rocky ran up. Restrooms and water inside the museum. Check hours.
Restrooms also roughly 1/3 of a mile beyond the tunnel as you ride toward the wildflower field.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Homeless people

June, 2022 by fartinggood

Scary sections of the trail. My husband and I road the trail starting in Corwin to Springfield. Several sections of the trail we went thru were questionable areas. On more then one occasion we were harassed by random homeless people. This can be very scary when out on the trail in the middle of nowhere . I recommend taking some sort of protection with you. I don’t know about the other sections of the trail but we will not be riding these parts ever again. Also, large sections of the trail were overgrown with lots of sticks and brush on the trail. I did not feel safe riding this trail

North Lewisburg Trail

Peaceful & Beautiful

June, 2022 by miniauthor

I enjoyed running the North Lewisburg trail! To the end and back was about 3.4 miles. It is flat and very straightforward. Love the tree cover - it makes it cooler and more secluded. The covered bridge is beautiful, also. Definitely will be back!

Hellbranch Trail

It’s a commuter trail

May, 2022 by binarydos

It’s a commuter path from plain city to Hilliard. Nothing really great about it.

Olentangy Trail

crowded and homeless

May, 2022 by binarydos

I have been on here a few times, it’s pretty busy, and the closer you get to the city the more homeless there are sleeping or wandering the trail.. it’s pretty sketch..

Darby Creek Trail

May, 2022 by binarydos

It’s not well maintained, busy, and short. It does have beautiful scenery though.

Marion Tallgrass Trail

Mother’s Day 2022

May, 2022 by eagle0086

Had a very enjoyed day on the trail. There were more users on the trail, than I thought there would be… but everyone was spread out and hardly noticeable. The trail had some debris all along the trail, but nothing that made the trail impassable. Plenary of benches spread out… but the only restroom facility was an port-a-John at the very beginning of the trail in Marion.

Downtown Connector Trail (Columbus)

In Poor Condition

April, 2022 by georgeabalint

I took the part of this trail formerly known as the I-670 trail, from Cleveland Ave. until it meets up with the album creek trail. The path was in poor condition, with many bumps and cracks as well as a large amount of glass I had to avoid. I would not recommend using this trail.

Olentangy Trail

Good Trail, needs some maintenance

April, 2022 by georgeabalint

FWIW I use this trail a lot and enjoy it. However, certain parts are in need a a repaving as it’s either dirty or cracked (and soon after a rainstorm parts remain flooded for up to a day). Additionally, it’s crowded but not enough to hinder my ride normally.
