Marion Tallgrass Trail

WCI Biking Division Honorable Mention

April, 2017 by wci biking division

Road this trail today. We will be back in the fall. This trail is now 11 miles long. This is a very well maintained trail. The trail is nice and wide. The WCI Biking Division has voted to put this on our honorable mention northern Ohio Rail Trail list. It was interesting to watch a controlled burn of the Brambles to the north. Luckily the wind blew the smoke away from the trail. WCI co-founder Rod was very impressed with the farmlands.

Slippery Elm Trail

enjoyed rural ride

February, 2017 by motophoto

The Montessori school does not allow parking weekdays while school is in session. Drive to wal-Mart to park. Trail is only 1/4 mi from parking lot. Pleasant paved path. Trail ends in North Baltimore and has men's and women's restrooms along with places to sit. Many benches along entire route. Mile markers also.

Simon Kenton Trail

First ride on the SKT

February, 2017 by shooky32

February riding outdoors @ 60 degrees in Ohio who would have dreamed it? Decided to enjoy the day and head to the SKT to check it out. Trailhead in Urbana in very easy to find (right on St Rt 36) and the restored Depot is very nice. Coffee shop inside was very nice too. Trail is relatively flat and in good condition has a little washboard in a few places but nothing too serious. There were a few places that are in need of repair that appeared to be new due to winter, I trust the maintenance crew will have repaired in a timely manner. Not as much canopy as some but still a nice 10 mile stretch from Urbana (Depot) to Springfield (Eagle City Soccer Fields). Check it out!!

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 and Ottawa Counties)

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

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.
