Canal Feeder Trail

Rode into Sidney Farmers Market

July, 2020 by donnacreamer_tl

Easy, shaded trail that leads to a beautiful cemetery. We rode on to the Sidney Courthouse, on a Saturday, and enjoyed the Farmers Market. Nice ride!

Darby Creek Trail

Beautiful trail but far too many “boulders “ and too much sun

July, 2020 by eshawger

Nice shaded trail for the first 1/2 mile or so through a beautiful forest at the south end of Battelle Darby Creek Trail. Then it was 95% sun to the north end and back. The crushed limestone trail wasn’t crushed so well at many points and one of those “pointy bits” likely gave me a flat front tire. Urgh. Fortunately it was a slow leak that I was able to pump back up a few times instead of walking back or breaking out the tube repair kit.

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

Scenic Trail

June, 2020 by brianaalbert528

I rode from the very beginning of the trail in Westerville to the Easton soccer fields and back. The views on this trail cannot be beaten. Beautiful bridges and a mix of sunny and shady spots. There are plenty of parks to stop at along the way. I do feel that the trail is a bit narrower than some of the other trails I frequent, such as the Camp Chase Trail, Robert's Pass or Heritage Trail. This trail is one of the more crowded ones I have been on, and people do not always follow/know trail etiquette. Encountered a few people walking on the wrong side of the trail. On the soccer fields, there was a group of spectators standing on the trail to watch the game. At one point, I rang my bike bell to signal I was passing another cyclist, and on approach, he rode his bike into my path, almost causing me to fall off. He then blocked me from passing for about 30 seconds before he finally gave up. I also witnessed him intentionally swerve in front of a walker walking towards us. Still, a lovely trail and definitely a must-try - hopefully you don't run into the people that I did!

Simon Kenton Trail

Nice Trail

June, 2020 by brianaalbert528

Rode from Bellfontaine to about 2 miles West Liberty. Only encountered about 5 other people/groups of people. Lovely views - rural setting with lots of farmland. Saw some cool birds, groundhogs, rabbits and a lil toad. My only complaint is that the trail would be so much better if it were paved. This part of the trail is made with crushed stones. I have a hybrid bike and rode on the trail pretty easily, but the noise is quite awful and some of the little rocks got in my eyes (I recommend wearing sunglasses even if not sunny). There is also little place to rest or stop - I rode 9.5 miles one way and there was only one bench. I will ride again for the views, but probably won't be a regular for me until/unless they pave the trail.

Roberts Pass Trail

One of My Favorites

June, 2020 by brianaalbert528

I love this trail. It's not the most scenic trail out there, but still beautiful; lots of densely covered areas and wildlife. It's mostly flat and straight. At the end of the trail is the city of London, a cute little town with some local shops that are worth checking out. This is probably the least crowded trail I've been on - I rarely see walkers and maybe about 5-10 cyclists every time I have ridden the trail to London and back. Definitely recommend trying this one out.

Sawmill Parkway Trail

Lot of stops & open

June, 2020 by linzphilipv_tl

This trail has lot of stops. It is open with no shade & close to the road. It was hard to get a smooth ride. As mentioned this trail has 2 types of road & might not be good for all types of bicycles.

Hellbranch Trail

Leisure ride

June, 2020 by linzphilipv_tl

The trail goes through a few residential areas. It might be hard at certain points as to where the trails is as there are no clear markings. The trail consists of 2 types of roads. Might not be able to go fast as there are a few stops & lot of curves.

Heritage Trail (OH)

Great Time!

June, 2020 by eshook07

Great trail to hike!

Marion Tallgrass Trail

Great trail

June, 2020 by fish_boat

Moved to this area about 8 months ago. Have rode this trail at least a dozen times. I always start out at the 3 big windmills just outside of Marion. About a half mile in there is a nice little fishing lake. Boats are allowed but no motors. Nice paved level trail from beginning to end (12.4 miles). Many benches along the way. Just past the 8 mile mark there is a nice place to stop and relax with a pavilion and a Porta Pottie. Just know there are only two Porta Potties on this trail. One at the start by the windmills and one just past the 8 mile mark. Also know that there are about 10 roads to cross. But very little traffic on them. All in all a great bike trail. I give it 5 stars.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Xenia to Jamestown a quiet, peaceful ride.

May, 2020 by tlockman11

Rode this trail over the weekend and were surprised at the low number of riders on the outbound. The trail's asphalt pavement is in good shape and there is more shade that we expected. There are a few places for drinks and snacks when you reach Jamestown. Would recommend this ~25 mile ride.

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Spencerville to Delphos

April, 2020 by itshammers

Caught the trail at Old Acadia Park in Spencerville. 8 mile ride up to Delphos where trail abruptly changed to grass. Nice crushed gravel, well maintained flat trail, no benches or rest stops in this section though. Canal on one side and fields on the other, a pleasant ride.

Tecumseh Trail Multi-use Pathway

Great trail for running, biking, walking, skating!

April, 2020 by naelyn77

Such a nice trail going a good distance. It's behind my house and I see many people on it all the time. Great history information about the old railroad and Abraham Lincoln in Gettysburg. Love seeing it used for is intended purposes.
