Wabash Cannonball Trail

Best way to get around Western Lucas County

August, 2017 by deckerk

We live just 1/2 mile south of the South Fork. I run the trail most every day. It's always in great shape. In winter the trail is cleared off before the roads are. Well maintained and popular trail. Just have to be careful crossing the roads. The trail crosses many busy roads so watch for traffic, especially crossing State Route 295 (both forks cross this road). Enjoy!

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Nice Trail

August, 2017 by roddyville65

We started at Oak Openings and rode east over US24, past the battlegrounds and on a ways before turning back and following the south fork to the end, then back past the parking area to the west ending point before returning to the Jeep just after dark. This trail says it closes at dark, a drawback for us as we would have put in a few more hours of riding if allowed, start early!

Mostly a smooth trail, some slightly washboard areas that were only minimally noticed, trail is in fairly good shape and a joy to ride!! We will return. The one real grip is all the stops every half to mile due to raod crossings, nothing major!

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Bloody Bridge South to St Mary's

July, 2017 by walkrunhike

The stretch from Bloody Bridge to St Mary's brings you very close to the canal, and the scenic farm land, forests, and ponds make it a memorable hike.

The Bloody Bridge parking situation is pretty carefree, so don't expect too much. Starting the trail from Bloody Bridge and going South is slightly confusing because you can take two routes.

First, you can walk next to the canal until you get to 66, but this part does not have gravel (at least when we went) and the grass may be high if they haven't mowed lately. Your other option is to walk the road that parallels the canal, until it dead ends into 66. We did both, but will probably stick to the road in the future because the path has some sink holes.

The big stops on this stretch are Lock 14, and the massive 40 acre ponds. Lock 14 is very scenic, and worth stopping to investigate. Per the Canal Booklet - Originally wooden, this lock was converted to concrete in 1907. The 2003 renovation includes a pedestrian bridge and parking lot. The booklet also mentions the 40 acre ponds were created as a result of the canal crossing the St. Marys river flood plane. The area next to the ponds is very peaceful, and is a standout feature on this part of the trail.

The Bloody Bridge to St Marys stretch of the Miami & Erie Canal Towpath really provides a nice scenic walk by the canal that I highly recommend. If you're looking for an off-cement walk, next to a canal and several large ponds, I think this hike is the perfect site.

DeKalb County Trail

A Bumpy Sidewalk for Local Commuters

July, 2017 by kristin.creager

Do not go out of your way to ride this one. No Trailhead on the north end. The trail runs directly next to a busy State Road, and it is one of the bumpiest sidewalks I have ever been on! Parked at the south end where there happens to be a golf course turned into a city park. THAT was a peaceful, beautiful and quick ride. However, some of the paths in the park dead end because of bridges being out. Better than the actual trail though!

Wabash & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Beautiful, Hazardous and Stinky

July, 2017 by kristin.creager

You ride on a paved trail through some peaceful marshes and wetlands. Since you ride through habitat for abundant wildlife it can be hazardous at times. One ride had encounters with hundreds of frogs, bats, possums, raccoons, stork and deer. The trail passes by two water treatment plants which smell awful

Angola Trail

Urban, Hilly Commuter Path

July, 2017 by kristin.creager

With a few small, but reasonably steep hills, this trail runs behind Meijer and Walmart while passing some apartment complexes. Lots of stopping at cross streets and to actually stay on the trail. It seems this is much more for residents to commute in the area or get in a quick run. Both ends of the trail have parking. The south trailhead ends at the high school. It was perfect to ride to the hot air balloon festival and avoid the hassles of parking. I suggest staying on the street behind walmart instead of hopping up onto the path. Also, when coming north to south be on lookout at the park for the left turn on to a street marked "no outlet." You will end up riding directly next to a play ground. (We missed the turn when riding and had to double back) There a bit of riding on the road, but it is mostly on a sidewalk. The residents were super sweet and always waved us on or backed up because they thought they were out too far into the intersection. :) May ride it again if in the area and need to get a ride in. Would not come here just to ride this though.

University/Parks Trail

Smooth Sailing

July, 2017 by marcher_tl

I've been riding this trail for several years, it is a smooth asphalt ride and if you want to lengthen you trip you can do the trail inside Wildwood Metro-park. Weekends in summer in the park can be a bit challenging as everyone and their dogs are there, so lots of slowing down and weaving around people. However, the trail is smooth sailing and beautiful with even some unexpected wildlife to view.

Slippery Elm Trail

Best Trail Ever!

June, 2017 by timtroutner

My family and I are a bit biased, we live less than a half mile from the Slippery Elm, and bike, run and walk it frequently. But we've ridden bucket-list trails in many places around the US, and they often fall short of our humble Slippery-Elm in many ways.

This trail is wide, flat, and smooth. It is well maintained by the county parks, and local volunteers. It is calm, peaceful, quaint, charming, and beautiful. It can be ridden at a relaxed pace to observe the scenery and wildlife, or rocketed along and a fast pace. Road racers however will find the sections very short, but that can make for great interval training.

My wife and I ride a tandem, and pull our two boys in a tag-along. The whole family loves to ride this trail. My wife says that I claim each section is my favorite, and a short ride often goes several miles extra, because "the next section is my favorite". The trail ranges from woods to swamps and prairies, to fields, and if observed carefully they all are interesting and beautiful.

Mid-day can get very hot on this trail, as long sections are in the open, but morning and evening are usually nice. Pay attention to the wind and plan your ride around it! We like to plan our trips to go out into the head-wind, and then ride a tail-wind home.

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Very Nice

June, 2017 by sarahibrandl

I have only ridden the Oak Openings to Maumee so far. Flat, clean and safe. Wooded areas, farm and houses. Black top this entire section. I look forward to riding the entire trail this summer.

Kiwanis Trail (MI)

Lovely Hidden Gem

June, 2017 by sarahibrandl

I have logged 2,000 miles a year on this trail for 7 years using this trail as a go between to get to Tecumseh or Saline from Adrian. It is a safe wonderful family trail, flat easy riding. There is a mix of joggers, walkers, bikers and inline. There is currently a 20 ft or so section awaiting new black top after the repair the spring. Other than that this a blacktop all the way. The parking is at either end and at Riverside or the church on Valley. Once you reach the end on Green and Ives, you have a short ride to Tecumseh heading left on a not busy 45 mph rd, for a wonderful small town visit.

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.
