Blackhand Gorge Trail

took on the gorge

August, 2019 by bwayne951

Not a bad trail, too short if you want a serious ride. Nice Scenery and overall a very mellow ride.

T. J. Evans Trail

Scenic trail that needs some maintenance

August, 2019 by ruthayoder

My husband and I biked this trail taking the advice of other reviewers by starting at the southern end in Newark which for us was a good decision. The scenery was very nice, a tunnel of trees a lot of the way. Some parts were recently paved but I think at least 25% needs repair with lots of bumps and some sections the maintenance could have been improved. There was a section where the greenery was grown out over the trail. Would have been nice if there were a restroom somewhere along the trail!

Holmes County Trail

July 2019 - Millersburg to Fredericksburg

August, 2019 by mike.koski

Rode north from Millersburg, through Holmesville, to Fredericksburg, and back on a Sunday afternoon. About 10 miles each way. Parked at the Hipp Station trail head, which has basic restrooms in the building (parking lot side) and a port-o-potty in the parking lot. Parking lot could hold 2-3 dozen cars, at least.

The trail starts under tree canopy for a bit and then reasonably mixes between sections of open farm field, limited trees, and denser tree coverage. Trail, which is almost like a colonial era road between villages, is wide and accommodating for its multiple users. The trail's asphalt surface is worn, but not broken, still giving a good ride. Horse and buggy traffic is directed to one side of the trail, so one side is naturally cleaner than the other. Be sure to signal when passing to not spook a horse. Most everyone on the trail seemed friendly and many gave a quick wave hello when passing.

The trail does go onto surface residential streets through Holmesville. It's only a few small blocks, the streets are wide and only 25MPH, and well marked with green bike route signs. When you arrive in Fredericksburg, you will be just over a small bridge from the elementary school to your right, which has a small playground and basketball courts with a gravel lot (so, this is probably the noted Fredericksburg trail head). If you continue through town, following the Ohio-Erie trail signs, in just a couple blocks will be a community park, which had a port-o-potty and a picnic pavilion, nice spot to take a break (Jackson St at Henry St). There appeared to be a small convenience store by the one traffic light in town, if you need a beverage.

My one negative comment would be that the mile markers are generally difficult to see. They are painted onto the pavement of the non-horse side of the trail. The white numbers were generally difficult to see as the fading and the worn white paint lacks contrast against the aging grey asphalt.

Marion Tallgrass Trail

A Pleasant Surprise

August, 2019 by orangedoug

The Marion Tallgrass Trail is as straight as an arrow for its 12.4 mile length and for the most part it is a green tunnel of trees and shrubs that is surrounded by corn and soybean farms. For this reason people looking to get more of a scenic view of the surrounding country side may want to put off riding the trail until Fall or early Spring. However, riding in the Fall may not be advisable due to hunting season. There were numerous signs along the trail stating that there was absolutely no hunting allowed within the 100 foot wide Marion Tallgrass Corridor. The trail itself is paved and is in excellent shape.

I unexpectedly found the Marion Tallgrass Trail interesting. First, there is almost no change in elevation so it is easy to get up to speed and sustain it throughout the entire length of the trail. However, there are quite a few road crossings (12) that could effect your ability to sustain your speed. Secondly, based on the location of the trail in Mid-Ohio farm country I doubt that you will ever find the trail crowded. I did come across a few bikers and pedestrians on the trail but most of the time I was on my own. So if you’re looking for a ride were you can get inside your own head, the Marion Tallgrass Trail may be the trail for you. Finally, there was a surprising amount of wildlife to be found along this trail. Despite it being around noon when I hit this trail, I encountered close observation of deer, hawks, Turkey buzzards, ducks, chipmunks, squirrels, and ground hogs. Lots and lots of ground hogs. What would I have seen if I had ridden early in the morning or later in the evening?

Richland B&O Trail

This Trail is Worth a Trip to Ride It

August, 2019 by orangedoug

The Richland B&O Trail runs through the Richland County, Ohio towns of Butler, Bellville, Lexington, and Mansfield. What's nice about this trail is that the distance between towns is approximately the same throughout the trail -- approximately 6 miles. Throughout its run, the trail goes through several types of scenery from farmland through woods and into urban settings.

The trail is paved but I noticed that several areas are suffering from tree root uplift so the surface gets bumpy at times. In addition, some road crossings are tricky, particularly, either due to the amount or speed of traffic and in some cases the angle at which the trail crosses the road. The worst offending crossings have flashing stop signs directed at riders and pedestrians on the trail, but I feel that perhaps these crossings should also have push button flashers for the trail users to activate to alert drivers when they want to cross.

Overall a trail worth checking out.

Loudonville Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathway

A Pleasant Local Utilitarian Trail

August, 2019 by orangedoug

The Loudonville Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathway is a pleasant little utilitarian path. It runs between the Riverside Park in the town of Loudonville, Ohio and the entrance to the campground in Mohican State Park to the south. Most of this pathway runs parallel to State Route 3 and runs through the commercial district south of town. Much of the businesses in this commercial district focus on the camping and canoeing tourists that come to take advantage of the Mohican River and the nearby state park. From what I can see it provides access to local residents to reach the businesses along Route 3 which I'm sure employ quite a few people. It also provides the tourists staying at the numerous campgrounds along this stretch to a number of eateries in the area and the town in general. The pathway is is good shape except for a 100 foot section just north of Wally Road that has been dug up and not repaved at this point.

Currently this trail services only the local community, but I’ve read of plans to attempt to connect this trail with Mohican Valley Trail, which is part of the OTET (Ohio to Erie Trail) Route. This 16.5 mile proposed route is called the Wally Road Multimodal Corridor Concept Plan and would connect to the MVT in Brinkhaven, Ohio. I would not consider this trail one to travel to at present, but if the Wally Road Multimodal Corridor Plan is developed, then it and the Loudonville P&B Pathway would be a part of something worth seeking out.

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

weekend visitor

August, 2019 by candace.bluediamond

This is a very nice trail system. It has some sunny and some shady areas, and keeps pretty well to Alum Creek. I have never been on this trail and was a weekend visitor. What I want to share is that I felt like the signage for the trails at the junctions was not adequate. Well, nonexistent. There were several side trails to various athletic areas and parks, but no real signage to direct the rider. I looked over the online map before venturing out. But if you don't have a map in front of you, it is easy to get turned around. I actually went up a driveway that had the same asphalt as the trail. Oops. Anyway, its not intuitive for an out-of-towner.

GREAT TRAIL EXPERIENCE FOR OLDER FOLKS

July, 2019 by kcwyks_tl

We are in our 60's and prefer paved trails, like this one. We rode from a great b&b just south of Xenia, only a few tenths of a mile from the trail, approx. 40 miles to Loveland. Then hired the Ohio Trail Shuttle to bring us back. Trail is mostly shady, wonderful scenery, wildlife, downhill to Loveland. Not many services available near the trail on this segment, except Corwin, a convenience store right next to the trail. Well maintained right of way, through pretty country. And when we got to Loveland, some great restaurants right along the trail. Certainly more folks on trail as you get closer to Cincinnati. Highly recommend this trail and thanks to all who maintain it! We also rode a small segment of the trail north from Yellow Springs but rain was threatening. YS is a cute college town with lots of amenities just west of the trail downtown. Make sure you check out the brewery along the trail just north of YS, and Youngs Dairy about 1/2 mi east of the trail for some ice cream. We will likely come back to explore other trails that cross in Xenia.

Holmes County Trail

July 2019

July, 2019 by pcturner0277

This is a really wonderful trail. We rode it from Fredricksburg to the Bridge of Dreams and back to checkout the newest section. The trail between Millersburg to Killbuck has a couple of gaping potholes at the edge of the trail due to erosion underneath. They have been spray painted with orange but if you arent paying attention and hit one you will likely crash. Stay 18-24" away from the edge!

From Killbuck to Glemnont the route is on SR 520. A couple small rolling hills but an easy drive. It was chip and sealed recently so its not smooth asphalt but in good condition. Traffic was light but it was a Sunday.

The newest section from Glenmont to Gann was awesome. Its steady 2% grade uphill from Glenmont about 3.5 miles with short but steeper section as you get to the top of the ridge then downhill to Gann. And then the same in the opposite direction but the ridge is about 4 miles uphill from Gann. Very nice trail through the woods. Watch out for the bollards on the way down. One bollard is missing but the steel plate is still in the pavement. Dont hit that!. We made the little picnic area at the Bridge of Dreams our turnaround and lunch stop before riding back to Fredricksburg.

Holmes County Trail

June 2019 Millersburg-Killbuck & Holmesville Sections

July, 2019 by vicki1960

Great ride on the section of the trail including Millersburg to Killbuck and Millersburg to Holmesville. Trail is very flat and wide. On a hot summer day the shady sections are welcoming. There are also open areas of the trail. Trail services include shops in Killbuck, just off the trail. Millersburg within feet of the trail. Also in Millersburg there are a few fast food restaurants steps away from the trail.

Love This Trail

June, 2019 by bryan.pitts

My wife and I bike this trail multiple times throughout the year and we've ridden (in sections) nearly every mile of it. We're leisure riders, so the (mostly) flat, shaded nature of this trail is perfection. There are so many spots along this trail to stop and enjoy life.

From the Milford trailhead, 50 West Brewing and the Schoolhouse Restaurant are just a short ride. Additionally, downtown Milford is full of charm

Downtown Loveland is an amazing spot to hit this trail, with an entire section of town seemingly centered on the trail with multiple restaurants, bars, bike shops, etc. Just to the north of Loveland is the Monkey Bar which is an extremely cool little watering hole. And a little farther to the north, the historic Peters Cartridge Company, which is slated for renovation into a brewery/taproom in late 2019.

If you're not able to bike as far north as Yellow Springs, we highly recommend driving up for a ride there. It's a very cool little town with the Yellow Springs Brewery right on the trail and the Glen Helen Nature Preserve just to the south. It is well worth parking your bikes and taking a hike through the preserve to visit the famous Yellow Spring.

Just can't say enough good things about this trail.
