This was a great trail for a nice 26 mile ride. All paved and flat. If you want to see Ohio, this trail has it all - farms, river and bridges. The best part is if you want to go farther, you have more of the Ohio to Erie trail in both directions.
We have ridden quite a few of the long rail-trails (GAP/C&O, Katy, Couer d'Alene, Chief Ladiga/Silver Comet, White Pines, Pine Creek, Greenbrier, Northbend) and The OTET is unmatched for the variety of things to see and do along the way. The landscapes vary from the lake to the industrial history of Cleveland, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, The Towpath, Amish country, Columbus, the soybean and cornfields of western Ohio, the Little Miami River and Downtown Cincinnati.
The trail will be finished next year in Cleveland and there will be only a small road section on W25th and Franklin. Then its path all the way to Dalton (once the temporary construction of the CSO project in Akron is complete and the trail restored and the detour removed). The 17 miles on the back country roads between Dalton and Fredericksburg were pleasant with very little traffic. Same with the 10 mile section between Centerburg and Sunbury. The Downtown Connector Trail between Alum Creek and the Scioto River had its interesting moments but wasn't bad (but it wasn't rush hour when we did it). The Camp Chase Trail is temporarily rerouted along Wilson Rd but pay attention to the detour signs so you don't get off track. Only other section that was a little rough was Just east of Cincy on Wooster Pike - rough road, and fast moving traffic that doesn't like to give you 3'. But its only a couple miles.
All in all a wonderful trip. We took 4 days to do it but we had ridden most of the sections in the last few years so were less compelled to stop. If this is your first or only time take a few extra days, make a lot of stops and enjoy all this route has to offer.
Very nice trail. Not too much incline except in Akron where the detour is. We rode from Zoar to Cleveland. We stayed in Akron after the first night at the courtyard which is just off the connector trail and easy to get too. Mostly fine gravel but we did this trail with road tires and had no issues. (A few flats) but really no issues. It does get busy in the cuyahoga valley section but most people were kind and moved over.
We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.
We rode this trail on July 15, 2020 from the Jewett end and back. While parts of the asphalt were uneven, We enjoyed it very much.
This is a fantastic trail, but with a bit of washout that has been repaired, although not resurfaced. Another smaller section appears to be eroding and crews have fenced it off for safety leaving only half the trail surface usable at that point.
There is ample parking at the east end, and there are several spaces available at the west terminus. The only restrooms are at the east end.
Plenty views of the river, and striking views of Blackhand rock on the north side of Licking river where a large retaining wall may have been installed back in the day.
The trail looks like it has seen better days, and has not been getting frequent maintenance. Many tree roots caused damage to the asphalt resulting in plenty of bumps along the way. A tree had fallen and was cleared but the wire fence it hit wasn't repaired, and it appears to have happened months ago, or even late last year. Another tree was still down across the trail, but it was high enough to ride or walk under. The views of the river were sparse and even when the trail was close there weren't any views worth noting. There was parking at either end, despite the TrailLink map not indicating that.
I've biked from Cleveland to Zoar on this trail and it is such a great trail with a lot of character. Of that, I'd say the stretch from Independence to Canton is my favorite. North of that it's mainly just Cleveland. And south of that is just woods and rural farms. As of summer 2020, about a 2 mile stretch just north of Akron is under renovation, so the detour is a bit of an annoyance. The trail mix stores in Peninsula and Boston Heights are a great place to grab bites to eat. My best suggestion for those who want a little more excitement than the flat terrain the trail has to offer is to detour from Peninsula and head to the Ledges Overlook in the CVNP. It's about a 400 foot climb so you'll feel a workout, but the views and the hiking are worth it especially in the fall. I camped at the boy scout camp near Zoar, and they were very easy to work with.
Went for a summer baseball game at Heath HS, stayed for an 11-mile bike ride. Straight, we’ll maintained and a few old barns along the way. Very cool!
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.
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.
