Towpath Trail

Non-Stop Thoroughfare!

October, 2016 by twotandemfamily

You can ride this trail non-stop for miles and miles with no stop signs. (There are a couple yield signs to warn of a private driveways to property between the old canal and the river.)That was really fun to be able to just keep riding and riding.

The trail is marked every quarter mile, with several places to rest or observe nature on park benches. Map displays are also frequent, with a convenient "you are here" arrow. There are nice restrooms at both ends of the trail, with a latrine in the middle of the trail at Bend View. There is a trail bypass to go around the park building at Bend View, if you don't want to slow down.

The trail was dry and very hard today, and we observed several folks on road bikes with skinny racing tires, although they may have had to use caution over a couple springtime washouts repaired with larger gravel.

Towpath Trail

Make a day of it

October, 2016 by unclewilbert

I've lived in the area for many years but rode the trail for the first time last weekend. I was on a recumbent with fat tires and the conditions were dry. It was wonderful! Only the center section was a little 'rough' - even when muddy, it would be trivial on a mountain bike.

I started at Farnsworth Park and headed south. There are many photo ops and a couple of rest stops with benches and rest rooms along the way. At the southern terminus in Providence Park you can tour the mill or take a ride on a mule-drawn canal boat through one of the original locks on the Miami Erie canal. The trail (unofficially) continues south about a half a mile to Providence dam where there is a shelter house, a playground and, yet another, scenic view. The whole thing is just dripping with history.

If this 18/20 mile round trip is not enough, you can do the 30 mile loop on the fully paved Wabash Cannonball Trail located virtually right around the corner.

Simon Kenton Trail

Decent trail

September, 2016 by cwburke

Not very scenic in the rural areas, but we happen to enjoy cornfields and agricultural land. Springfield is the worst part of the section of trail from Xenia to Urbana, but we got through it without any problems. Not exactly an enjoyable part of the journey though!

North of Urbana the trail turns to gravel and it is substandard for rail trails. I wouldn't ride anything but a mountain bike on this section. We have a tandem with 32mm touring tires, which normally do fine on gravel rail trails. We turned around after about a quarter mile. The gravel is mostly 57s (not hard-pack), which is too course for hybrid type tires. We just couldn't see riding 16 miles up and 16 miles back on that stuff.

I don't want to complain too much, however. We live in northeastern KY where there are no paved bike trails and only one gravel rail trail that horses have tore up to the point that it is almost unridable on anything but mountain bikes. So the Ohio bike trail system is wonderful by comparison, even with its relatively minor flaws!!!

Hopefully they will be able to pave the northern section of this trail in the near future.

Canal Feeder Trail

Scouting Hike

September, 2016 by mikesup80

We took our scouts on this trail to enable our Webelo's to complete some of their tasks to achieve their Walkabout requirements. The trail is moderately flat with some grades and but not too steep. Very scenic along the river and shaded for the most part. The trail is paved and wide so plenty of room for a large group to walk together. The trail is maintained well.

North Coast Inland Trail - Sandusky/Ottawa County (Bellevue to Elmore)

Very nice, our home trail

September, 2016 by purejoyriding

I often ride this trail from Elmore to Fremont and back. When riding this section i recommend stopping in Lindsey at Sandi's Village Cafe for their great coffee and they have great food and pastry items also. The staff is very small town friendly and will assure your stop is enjoyable. This section of the trail runs through wonderful countryside and deer can often be spotted. I did ride the streets of Fremont once to connect to the Fremont East section but would not do so again as it is a bit too dangerous for me. The trail east from Fremont is also a nice ride and both sections of this trail are generally well maintained. There is a wonderful bike shop in Elmore (Elmore Cycle and Fitness) and the folks are very helpful with any bike or travel issues and are avid bikers themselves. As is often the case on trails there is a nice ice cream shop (I Scream) next door also. A nice safe trail.

Lima Rotary Riverwalk

Wonderful riding experience

July, 2016 by ronclinger

Wonderful variety of scenary along the river. Great condition. Some terrain changes to make it a good cardio workout. Highly recommend this route.

North Coast Inland Trail - Sandusky/Ottawa County (Bellevue to Elmore)

NCIT is OK

July, 2016 by majordick

A lot of early morning cyclists. A bench every few thousand feet it seemed. Every few benches are covered. A few nice bridges.

Marion Tallgrass Trail

Tall Grass Trail

July, 2016 by phillie666

I really like the tall grass trail. It is a relatively short and quick ride and I've rode it hundreds of times. I have got to watch it grow from nothing. Half of the fun for me is watching it grow so I'll kinda few happy and sad when it is finished.

Slippery Elm Trail

Great for families and novice trail riders

June, 2016 by jsacnelson

This trail is great for my family of five, school age, very easy going riders! It is paved and quite a few parts are shaded. My kids have nicknamed it the pizza path because we like to start in North Baltimore and ride to Bowling Green for Myle's Pizza. It's a great reward to get my 2nd grader moving! The scenery is very pretty and stop signs for crossing roads are clearly marked. Benches and restrooms along the way as well.

Simon Kenton Trail

Urbana to Bellefontain

May, 2016 by mfoster61

We cycle 2 to 3 thousand miles every years on the bike paths in western Ohio. We would love to cycle from Buck Creek State Park to Bellefontain. However, we will not ride the trail from Urbana to Bellefontain unless it's paved, it's not worth tearing our bikes up and having a less than enjoyable ride. Maybe someday we'll make it to Bellefontain on a paved path.

Towpath Trail

Great Historical Trail

May, 2016 by rsorge5959

Bring your bike with slightly fatter tires for crushed gravel, but otherwise a fantastic ride with several historical sites/stops......a gem for the family.

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Canal Walk

May, 2016 by bobsphoto

The canal was easy to find, but not the trail. We were looking for maybe a small parking lot and a sign proclaiming the trail beginning. It turns out one walks along the canal. We intended to use this trail as a bike path. We decided to park at the (Very Nice) War Memorial and ride until we came to be riding along the canal through people's yards. There was a sign at the edge of Delphos stating "No Biking". We parked the bikes and decided to walk. We felt a little awkward walking through people's backyards but continued to a large farmers field. There were several large holes along the path hidden by the high grass. Walking we saw them but maybe not on a bike. I would not recommend this trail.
