Wabash Cannonball Trail

Long Rides

June, 2024 by drrsg8g8fg

I live close to Fallen Timbers and pick up both the north and south paths often and I have road the whole south trail a couple times. I ride both a full suspension and no suspension mountain bikes from the early 2000s. Either is adequate for the parts of the trail I’ve road on. I find the trail beautiful. I’d like to make it out to Montpelier but have only made it just past the detour between Delta and Wauseon. The posted detour has you going about 4-5 miles on county roads. This is very dangerous. I would not recommend as the traffic is very fast and if cars come from both directions you have to get off and the off often ends up in a ditch and not easy. I’ve found it better to just continue on the path and avoid the detour. But this places you along the railroad tracks and it’s very difficult to ride. They are active tracks also and trains will come by. Riding on the trail though the detour is possible but rough and the part that goes over the tracks and along them is not marked well. It took some exploring to figure it out. I can’t speak for the trail after wauseon to Montpelier as I haven’t made it that far but the parts I’ve road are a great path for all day riding. You will have to cross streets along the way so you will have starting stopping.

Falling Waters Trail

Nice ride

May, 2024 by longellob

We rode this trail from Concord to Jackson. The trail began crossing the Kalamazoo River. The ride was not really that exciting, except as we got to Jackson, there were several sculptures on display and even for sale! The wind from Jackson back to Concord was brutal. All in all, it was a nice ride and the weather was spectacular!

Falling Waters Trail

One of my favorite trails

April, 2024 by joelbradley93

One of my favorite trails to longboard on. The segment by Spring Arbor that perfectly cuts through the lake is especially beautiful in the summer. Some bikers can be going fast so just be mindful of your surroundings, but it's a great trail beginning to end.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

Mike Levine Trail

December, 2023 by ferretnutz

Nice paved path from Pettysville Road and M 36 marshaling area through Pinckney. The path turns to fine crushed stone near Anderson and was quite a chore to ride on due to wet, low light areas which had not dried out. Not great in this area for bikes on a leisurely ride. Nice dry, sunny day of 50 degrees. The path will probably not dry out here all winter.

Falling Waters Trail

Falling Waters Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

If you like water, wildlife, serenity, and long, straight, flat trails enveloped by a canopy of trees, then this is the trail for you.

I started at the Concord trailhead, and as I made my way past the north branch of the Kalamazoo River, along the trail beneath the canopy of trees, and eventually to the causeway across Lime Lake before another canopy of trees to Jackson, I kept thinking to myself how great it must be to live nearby and to enjoy this trail year-round and its four seasons.

I experienced it on a brisk, early October morn and enjoyed the beginnings of fall color and the golden brown, leaf covered path. As a visitor from suburban southern California, I don't really get to enjoy that Autumn color back home.

I especially appreciated the clean air, picturesque scenery, solitude, modern whimsical sculptures near the Jackson trailhead, and the outgoing and friendly locals utilizing the trail.

The bike ride was only a twenty-two mile round trip, but it was certainly worth the journey for me from SoCal to enjoy this idyllic setting!

Great Trail

October, 2023 by rick888

This trail starts at Whitmore Lake and goes all the way to Jackson prison. The trail is mostly crushed limestone which is smooth and flat. Nice scenery the whole way. The trail goes very close to the prison. You can even see the inmates exercising in the yard. It was like a movie set.

Falling Waters Trail

Great fall bike ride

October, 2023 by katmai_tl

This is my new favorite trail. Sparkling clear lakes appear on one or both sides of the trail with spots for sitting and enjoying the views. We saw several pairs of swans.

Border-to-Border Trail

Trail needs better markings!

September, 2023 by 72qr2qp99s

I tried the trail for the first time today. I started at the parking lot off Barton. As I entered the city, I found it very confusing. Various trails ended up on city streets with no indication of where the trail picked up again. I finally was able to find my way to the long stretch along the river. More markings are needed, especially where the trail branches off, to help guide us on the right direction!

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

lovely ride

August, 2023 by tjmodd

We started at Whitmore Lake Road and biked 3 miles past Gregory. The parts of the trail that are paved are excellent. And road bike worthy. The crushed stone path is also very well-kept. There are some leaves and debris across the trail but nothing alarming. My husband and I were on mountain bikes. However, we saw many people on road bikes on the crushed stone. Beautiful scenery. We will ride this again.

Angola Trail

Pokagon State park to Commons park

July, 2023 by johnberger113

Great trail especially riding e-bikes since part of the trail is hilly. Ice cream, yogurt, and food found along the way. Riding to Commons park puts you just east of downtown Angola. Very clean restrooms at the park. Check out this link to watch my ride of the trail https://youtu.be/BSH6-eiC3kQ

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Depends on section you are on

July, 2023 by trob4cy

I started on the north fork just east of Montpelier riding east and after awhile realized this trail was just not passable by bicycle (rough aggregate / overgrown / down trees). After West Unity I moved to neighboring highways (mainly roads G and F) until I got east of Wauseon. When rejoining east of Wauseon the quality of the trail was still very poor. But once I reached the Delta trailhead on Hwy 109 the trail transformed into a very nice quality paved trail all the way into Fallen Timbers. I was just passing through on longer ride so did not spend anytime on the south fork.

I would probably characterize some of the sections west of Wauseon as some of the poorest trail situations for bicycling I have ever seen. Then on the flip side the section east of Hwy 109 were great. Assuming this Jekyll and Hyde scenario is due to different groups maintaining the trail with Toledo Metroparks section to the east of north fork being very nice. Northwestern Ohio Rail to Trails Association maybe lacking resources to conduct proper maintenance in western portions of north fork (or maybe bicycling is not considered a primary use for the trail in the western portions of the north fork).

Border-to-Border Trail

Hudson Mill to Dexter Huron Metro Park

July, 2023 by vincentm90

Pretty trail that’ follows along the river. We staged in Hudson Mill and added a loop around the park. You have to walk your bike through downtown Dexter (signs postings) to get to the connecting trail that goes in to Dexter Huron. Need more signs to point the way. Otherwise a great bike trail with plenty of views and shade.
