Olentangy Trail

Great Ride

April, 2017 by prhelt

The trail could use a little better marking. I never missed a turn by much, but I did miss several as you could not always tell which way to go at a fork. Pretty level and we'll paved. I rode the north and south sections in one ride. I usually don't like to go on a road, but the short road section had no cars in it.

Hockhocking Adena Bikeway

Well worth riding

April, 2017 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

In April 2017 a friend and I rode the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway from west of Athens to Nelsonville (about 12 miles each way). The trail is paved and generally good (occasional bumps from roots). Route is shaded and follows the Hocking River with mile markers every half mile. Bluebells and trillium were putting on a show - thanks to the folks who planted them! At Nelsonville the trail peters out - would be nice to have directional sign to Fullbrook Cafe or other eateries. Bring hydration as nowhere to stop in between towns.

T. J. Evans Trail

needs maintenance.

April, 2017 by jvanburen_tl

This is a very straight trail with a deceiving incline heading north. The bad part is on a road bike it will beat you up. Lots of roots, potholes and grade variances

Great Beginner/Kid Friendly Trail

April, 2017 by garybrandy

Very gradual elevations both directions, great scenery, well kept trail. Highly recommend.

Hockhocking Adena Bikeway

Nice ride

April, 2017 by bpatch

Nice ride. Trail well taken care of. Started at Hocking College parking lot. A little difficult to follow directions to parking lot. By accident we ended up at college parking lot along side trail. Beautiful scenery at this time of the year. Gorgeous wildflowers all around trail. Only rode 10 miles. Look forward to starting in Athens and seeing that end of the trail.

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

Nice trail

April, 2017 by bpatch

Very nice ride. Trail in great shape. A little confusing starting out from Nelson Run Park going south. Once you get out of town good to go. Starting from Nelson Run Park going south a little challenging get on the way back as you're dealing with a little bit of a grade. All in all a beautiful ride.

Hockhocking Adena Bikeway

Spring wildflower ride- 4-14-2017

April, 2017 by w8hc

I try to ride the Hockhocking trail at least two times a year. It is one of my favorite rides and catching it on a weekday when it is not so busy, especially on the Athens side is great BUT catching it when the weather and spring wildflowers were showcasing the very "Best Of" made for the perfect ride. The trilliums and wild phlox were in full bloom as were the fields of bluebells planted along the bikeway giving the surreal appearance of riding on clouds. Much work has been done in maintaining the trails right-of-way clearing trees and brush and to the trail itself with the freshly painted mile markers done with a Native American style. (kudos to the folks that keep this a 5star trail!) Me and my 75-year old friend Dave rode from the trail head at the outskirts of Athens to Nelsonville and back. It is almost a 40 mile ride but I usually tack on the difference to make a legitimate 40-miler. It never fails that I observe something new every time I travel this trail... this time, I saw several concrete structures used to support the old rail line. I like the history stuff associated with rail trails and try to envision what it must've been like when the earliest Ohioans used these canal and rail lines to transport goods and materials into the edges of the new west. I look forward to at least one more drive (almost 2 hours one-way) to the Hockhocking Adena and chance to ride this GREAT rail trail!

Camp Chase Trail

very nice ride

March, 2017 by jvanburen_tl

Very nice well maintained trail. There are several flip flop across the RR tracks. and a couple highway crossings. There is a gravel section and a short steep hill in Battelle Darby Park so be prepared to go to the small ring.

Richland B&O Trail

Inline skating

February, 2017 by jim.h1175

I skate the Richland B&O Trail almost every weekend in the summer. It is a great Trail to skate. Its pretty flat the length of the entire trail. I skate the whole length about 4 Times a summer, And have not had any problems. The surface overall is a 7 out of 10 for inline skating and a 10 out of 10 for biking. There are plenty of benches to rest if need be. a couple of spots to use the restroom also. One of the best trails I have been on So far

Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail

The trail

December, 2016 by scottsub30

Over all I l love this trail except for one minor problem . Why wont Norfolk Virginia Give the city of Columbus that stretch of trail at Hines and Tussing so they can finish the Trail proper? It makes no sense what so ever !!! Complete that area and the trail will be epic

Holmes County Trail

My First Trail!

October, 2016 by bridget44890

Seemed easy enough to ride especially for a first-timer, relatively flat, pretty scenery, lots of tree cover, and lots of horse poo to dodge (but it was no big deal). We did Fredericksburg to Millersburg and back.. Plan to return to finish the route to Killbuck.
