We came off the Lorain county section of the trail and entered into Huron County near Wakeman. We biked the section along Route 20. Very nice asphalt paved trail separated by a grassy section between the trail and the road. In Wakeman we turned around and headed back to Elyria.
Trail services in Wakeman we found a service station/convenience store for cold water to purchase.
Rode this trail after rain a rain storm (on me). Very little signs, tons of over growth, and had to walk my bike most of time due to poor conditions. Won’t do this one again until significant upgrades are made.
Rode the entire length and also into Huron County onto the next trail. I found this trail to be one of the easiest to ride. Seemed downhill both ways on a very good asphalt paved surface. Trail goes through several small towns, aka villages and the scenery is mostly farmlands and wooded sections. The downside to this trail is there are a lot of road crossings, too many to count though someone else has already done that! Luckily the road crossings are small not a lot of traffic back roads so if there is a wait, it's not a long wait.
Parked in Elyria and headed West. There are mile markers going in each direction.
8 miles from Elyria is Oberlin. There's an old train station there and you could bike into town for trail services such as lunch. We ate at a pizza place which had outdoor seating.
A few miles west of Oberlin is Kipton which is just biking through a community park.
We biked to Green Road and did the share the road section for a little bit before entering Huron County (next trail section) and biked on into Wakeman.
My brother and I rode this trail on the July 4th weekend and had a lot of fun. We started at Bowerston. There is enough to see and it is very peaceful. There are covered bridges, a beautiful lake and just the view of country. A note - there are port a potties on this trail.
We ventured off into the towns of Scio and Jewett to take in what rural small town Ohio is like. The B & F Dairy Bar (Scio) has good ice-cream.
In the town of Jewett, there are some buildings where the bricks are painted as pictures. There is one of a streetcar as this town was the home of the Jewett Car Company. A picture of Clark Gable, who was born nearby (Cadiz) along with General Custer (also from nearby New Rumley).
We completed our day with a meal at the Western Grill in Bowerston
We had good food and service.
WCI Biking Division returned to the HCT over the July 4 weekend. HCT remains one of the best. Trail is a bit bumpy between Millersburg and Holmesville. Other than that it is very nice. We rode from Millersburg to Fredericksburg. We tried the new section starting from Glenmont. This is a challenge. If you want flat, it’s not here. A steady uphill grade going out 4 miles. We stopped there and turned around. Never pedaled once heading back. We will try again some day to do the entire length of the new section.
Group ride the end of June 2020. We biked the entire length as well as the connecting Niles Greenway trail for a 33 mile round trip. Well maintained trail and friendly riders.
I rode the Ohio-Erie route this morning starting from Lock 39 at Rockside Rd in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I had not ridden north of Harvard Rd and my wife and I are doing the OH2ERIE in a couple of weeks so I wanted to scout this section out to Edgewater park.
After the Harvard Rd TH the pike path runs adjacent to Harvard Rd and then turns north running along Jennings Rd to Steelyard Commons. There is one short gravel section as it crosses a company's driveway. It then goes behind the shops in Stellyard Commons. It was surprisingly pleasant with grass and trees planted. You still have RR tracks on one side and a chain link fence on the other but this is old school Cleveland Industrial area. There is a steel heritage museum along with some artifacts from the steel industry. The trail goes through two quick tunnels under Steelyard Commons and Quigley and the Towpath continues straight on the OTET turns right and goes up next to Quigley to W14th.
The Towpath continues on and its surprisingly nice - paved, with some great scenic overlooks. It deadends near Literary Rd. Its possible to go up University Rd (to be paved in the future but its rough right now) and rejoin the OTET at W14th and Abbey. If you go along Abbey Rd under the interstate you have a great shot of the Cleveland skyline with the Cleveland name sculpyure. Turn back around and pick of the Centennial Trail.
Once you leave Steelyard Commons I saw no OTET trail signs. There were other Cleveland Metroparks signs for their trails.
There was roundabout construction at W29th and Franklin so you detoured onto Clinton to parallel Franklin then I took W45th back to Franklin then W65th to Edgewater.
I had a great time. Never thought that the old part of Cleveland could be so enjoyable. If you are a fan of the Movie A Christmas story you can make a short detour and ride past it in the Tremont neighborhood.
Biked this trail as an addition to the Niles Greenway trail. Seamless connection at the Trumbull and Mahoning County lines.
Great asphalt paved trail is just under 11 miles in length.
Construction still at Kirk Road. They are building a tunnel for the trail which will go under the Ohio turnpike. Follow short and well constructed trail detour.
Always great to bike on the trail in addition to the Metro Parks Bikeway which connects at the Mahoning & Trumbull County lines. Niles is approx 4 miles in length and the adjoining Metro Parks Bikeway is 11 miles. Trail starts in the city of Niles and goes through a park like area and old industrial sites. Trail in very good cared for condition.
It can be a little hot at the two ends of the trail as there is no close to the trail vegetation, however it is worth the sweat. There is an ice cream stand right off the trail about midway should you want to get a snack or something to keep you cool. The bridges, the lily ponds, the wildlife, the way this trail has been lovingly cared for by volunteers makes it a unique place to ride.
This well-maintained asphalt path made for a fun 44 miler on the gravel bikes. We rode it twice to get some extra miles. The covered bridges and tree canopy kept us in the shade most of the day.
Very nice trail to ride good scenery along the way have done parts working completely the thing from Massillon to Dalton
