T. J. Evans Trail

path closure 6/5/23

June, 2023 by kevin55mae

6/5/23 path closed due to bridge construction. Bridge out between Granville and Newark. 2.7 mile detour very poorly marked.

Paint Creek Recreation Trail

Poorly Maintained

May, 2023 by jeffreysneddon

This trail has lots of potential with scenic views but is in dire need of maintenance and signage. I planned to do the full 70 mile round trip but stopped at just over 23 to avoid damage to my road bike.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Yellow Springs to Xenia

May, 2023 by bluegrasslass

Trail surface in super condition; mostly dappled shade. Quiet on a Monday in late May. Great place to stay in YS is Arthur Morgan B&B; we’ve been there several times and enjoy the town.


Simon Kenton Trail

Was Just ok

May, 2023 by keith.a.burley

Three and a half stars Rode Simon Kenton trail from Bellefountaine to West Liberty and back (14 mile round trip). It is a seal and chip surface in very good condition done in 2018 (https://www.simonkentonpathfinders.org/about/). It is a rail-to-trail so it is basically flat. The trail runs alongside a set of train tracks - as noted in other reviews - no shade except in the late afternoon / evening. Not anything particularly attractive about the trail other than a new place to ride.

Marion Tallgrass Trail

Good ride

Nice easy ride to get some good mile PR’s

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Avoca Park to Lake Isabella

May, 2023 by dave.willard

We did Avoca Park to Lake Isabella Park on this trail today. About 20 miles round trip. It was an absolute beauty of a ride. The trail is wide and well maintained. There are lots of toilet spots and it only crosses a handful of small, low-traffic roads. I highly recommend this ride.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great Allegheny Trail southeast of Pittsburgh?

April, 2023 by eshawger

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.

Meredith State Road Trail

Newell Nature Preserve to Sunbury

April, 2023 by myuhasz

This section of the trail is new and it shows, the path is smooth and excellent to ride on. This has become my favorite trail in the area to ride on. Plenty of places to park along the route so you can adjust your ride accordingly.

Blackhand Gorge Trail

lovely path

April, 2023 by phisayo

We rode this trail with our 10 and 8 year olds. We all enjoyed it. Very scenic and not too crowded. Loved that the trail has bike racks near the hiking paths. Next time we will try a small hike in addition to the ride.

Sandel Legacy Trail

Forms a great link from Sunbury to Galena but is sometimes confusing

March, 2023 by normanhmath

Two issues I have with the Sandel Legacy Trail is it is hard to tell which parts of the trail linking Galena and Sunbury are [1] There are THREE TRAIL NAMES associated with this trail. Riding southwest to northeast, you pick up the Galena Brick Trail in Galena, either from Dustin Rd which is county road 104 or from N. Walnut Street in Galena proper if you followed West Columbus Street into Galena to go to The Coffee Vault or Galena Diner or simply through central Galena. Once you catch the Eastbound{Northeast bound} Galena Brick Trail , you pass through a park and playground, Miller Park and continue eastbound through residential Galena. Follow the trail straight into Sunbury and exit and you see the sign that says Sandel Legacy Trail . But as you are riding along on this trail, some of the streetsigns labeling the trail say Thomas W Hopper legacy Trail. Thus on a short 2.5 mile trail, you see three name changes and the transitions are not clear. Sandal Legacy is only named prominently on a sign at the east trailhead. [2] The continuation of the Ohio to Erie Trail from the Sandel Legacy is not clear from the map or from wayfaring signs at the Northeast trailhead of the Sandel Legacy. The map suggests you turn to S Columbus Street to follow a path to the North through Sunbury to Rainbow Street. However doing so requires a n unmarked LEFT TURN after crossing the Bridge over S Columbus Street to leave the trail and roll down to that street. The trail continues east to where the actual Sandel Legacy Sign is posted then ends in gravel through which you cut to the north to find yourself on N Vernon Street then you have to make a LEFT TURN {No sign informing you of this} onto E Cherry Street to get to North Columbus Street which you can then take to Rainbow Avenue. Signs for Ohio bike route 1 are pretty clear once you make it onto North Columbus Street, they will guide you to Rainbow Ave to High Street and then to Hartford Rd which gets you out of Sunbury, up a little hill, then you are ready for the actual Delaware County Preservation Parks Ohio to Erie Trail, all trail as of 6/3/2022 and it takes you onto the Heart of Ohio Trail. Sandel Legacy Trail itself is pretty nice but it is confusing, poorly signed especially at its transitions into Sunbury and it is unclear where it becomes Thomas W Hopper or Galena Brick.
