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.
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.
The WCI Biking Division returned to the B&O Rail Trail over the July 4 weekend. We decided to ride from Lexington to Butler and back. Trail is nice and flat and in pretty good shape. A little bumpy about a mile to two miles outside of Lexington heading towards Butler. There is one pretty good bump in the trail that had WCI co-founder Rod nearly thrown off his bike. He starts too fast. Other than that, a great trail. We actually saw a plane land on the air strip just outside of Butler. A little detour was necessary in Bellville as they paint the bridge adjacent to the trail.
Myself and another reviewer said the parking lot at Mount Vernon is closed. The other day we started at the other end in Danville and rode to Mount Vernon and the parking lot is now open. In my last review I forgot to say at the 9 mile mark if you start in Mount Vernon there is a great place to stop and relax with a small play ground for the kids. Great bike trail!
Very nice paved trail. Only downside is it is as only about 50% shaded.
The trail itself is still beautiful and well maintained, but the State of Ohio is doing a very extensive bridge-building project which has cut off access to the parking lot in Mount Vernon. I suggest you park at the Mount Vernon railroad station (Columbus Avenue) and get on the trail there. You have a push-button to cross the busy street, and Kokosing is about two miles away, a pleasant ride through the town park. (Or you can go the other way on Heart of Ohio Trail - HOOT).
This trail is great for road cycling. It is clean and not congested. It is an easy ride with nice coverage, so the sun doesn't beat down on you for the entire ride. Nice when you just want to get up and get a solid ride in.
My favorite trail so far. Clearly marked trail heads and parking. Beautiful views of the Kokosing River. Long enough for a great workout. Highly recommend it.
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!
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.
Have road this trail several times since I moved to this area. Never get tired of it. There are a few places to hike if you want a break from bike riding. I always stop at the train and have snacks while watching people explore the train. Another thing I like about it is you can extend your ride on the Heart of Ohio trail. But you should know with construction going on the trailhead near Mount Vernon is closed. As is the connector trail. Seems like that construction has been going on forever.
Great trail to hike!
