Clinton-Fayette Friendship Trail

nice stretch for road travels, not far off highway

July, 2021 by campsnoopy3690

Most of the path is paved now, except the last 1/2 - mile from the south end near Melvin Rd. Great flat path riding thru corn fields and some tree lined areas.

Gallia County Hike & Bike Trail

some attention needed

July, 2021 by movexpertagent

Nice trail however some parts are becoming overgrown with weeds and sumac. Trash bags strewn about near what looks like the city sewer plant. There’s also some areas with roots growing through the asphalt. Overall a great ride though


Scioto Greenway Trail

Nice trail with plenty of stops and some pumps and water also always getting improved in the heart of the Buckeye state!

Darby Creek Trail

Good for a hybrid, road bikes beware.

July, 2021 by edm2dccixh

Did the southern portion of the trail today. From the parking lot/trail head it was 4.5 miles to the north where the trail ends. Other reviewers we're correct, there is almost no shade after you complete the first little bit of the trail. Trail condition: The vast majority of the path was a crushed, compacted limestone that was in decent shape. There were a few spots however where the stone was 1 to 1-1/2 inch gravel. Road bikes, or bikes that like asphalt would not do well. If you go be sure to check out The Track; neat bit of history.

Heritage Rail-Trail

Goal reached

July, 2021 by jchandler79

Well I hit my goal of 60 miles taking 10 trips on the trail a few days before I hit the big 60. Took me 3hrs 40 min which for these old bones was good. It’s time to explore other trails.

Gallia County Hike & Bike Trail

Great for and Easy Ride

July, 2021 by droopmountainmann

My wife and I road the entire trail from the Exxon to Lee St. 13 miles total (6.5 one way). Took us about an hour and 20 min but we took it easy. Trail is very well kept, a few joggers and walkers along the way, everyone was very friendly. Hit up the shake shoppe when you are finished, great shakes and malts!

Heritage Rail-Trail

The trail became my friend

June, 2021 by jchandler79

Like many others when I had to start working from home a bike became my friend along with this trail. I started biking last June and stuck with it even layering up over the winter. This trail and I have seen all types of weather. It’s a welcome break after work to hit the trail. I have enjoyed racing the rabbits, dodging the deer and of course people walking their dogs. I’ve worked my way up to 6 consistent trips and am striving to hit 10 by my 60th birthday on 20 July this year!

Foor Leisure Path

Groveport's Useful Connector Trail

June, 2021 by orangedoug

Essentially this trail is designed to connect the town of Groveport, Ohio with both the 17.8 mile Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail and the 25.2 mile Alum Creek Greenway Trail which connect to each other a few miles west of where the Foor’s northern end connects to the Blacklick Creek Greenway. (In fact, if you look at Groveport in Google Maps you will find that the Foor Leisure Path is actually identified there as the Blacklick Creek Greenway.)

The Foor Leisure Path ends just short of Groveport at Corbett Rd./Ebright Rd. However, if you cross over Corbett/Ebright and follow Front Street, after a 1/4 mile you will come to Blacklick Street where you can enter Groveport Blacklick Park. The park was once the sight of a canal boat manufacturing and dry dock operation back in the Ohio Canal era of the 1830’s. Lock 22 of the Ohio & Erie Canal can still be found in the park today. Now, you will find the Groveport Recreation Center, the municipal pool, and athletic fields in the park. There are several trail loops here as well. I rode nearly 6 miles on this out-and-back ride on the 1.3 mile Foor Leisure Path. The extra milage on this trip came from riding into Groveport to see what awaited me in Blacklick Park.

Canal Winchester Trail System

A Useful City Trail System That Could Use Some Updating

June, 2021 by orangedoug

On a recent trip to central Ohio, I took a trip to the city of Canal Winchester to give their city's trail system a ride. Like the trail network in Westerville, Ohio this trail system is designed as recreation and an alternative transportation (primarily cycling) option connecting residents with businesses, parks and city amenities.

I first started out riding almost 2 miles on an out-and-back trip on the northeast section of the trail system. This segment is not connected to the other parts of the city’s trail network. I wondered about the purpose of this trail section as the only connection to any residential neighborhood I saw was to an apartment complex. Otherwise there was a lot of open land around this part of the trail. The northeast section runs along Diley Road, passing an industrial park, the Diley Ridge Medical Center -- Canal Winchester's local hospital, and connects/ends at the local Meijer grocery store. Maybe that’s the purpose here — a way for workers to get more healthy lunches at break time. It looks as though the pathway was put in by the developer who built the industrial park and hasn’t been touched since.

The main part of the trail system in Canal Winchester is more connected and is in the main part of the city. And connects neighborhoods to the central business district, Winchester Industrial Park, the municipal pool, the local public high school. There were plenty of bikes at the pool, so many kids are utilizing the trail system to get to the pool. It appears that the trail system has good utility in connecting residents with many of the city's main points of interest but it would be more useful if it also connected to Walnut Creek Park in southern Canal Winchester and the Franklin County Metro Parks' Walnut Woods west of the city.

As far as the trail conditions go, the trail system is really just a widened sidewalk but with an asphalt surface rather than one made of concrete. The path is seven feet wide. It’s surface is in good to fair condition but it could use resurfacing in a few spots and seal coating at the very least. Traffic is very busy along Gender Road where the bike path is sort of a two-way extra lane in the commercial/retail district. This extra lane is not separated from the road. The Canal Winchester Trail System appears to be a useful trail to local residents, but in my opinion it could use a makeover.

Ohio Canal Greenway

Not Up to the Standards of Other Licking County Trails

June, 2021 by orangedoug

To celebrate Flag Day I rode 5.5 miles on an out-and-back ride on the Ohio Canal Greenway starting in Canal Park in Hebron, Ohio. Compared to the other Licking County trails I rode last Fall, this trail definitely was the roughest one I have ridden. The surface varies from concrete coming out of Canal Park to grass and dirt soon thereafter. Here, it reminded me in some ways of the Towpath Trail along the C&O Canal Trail in Maryland. However, south of Interstate 70 the surface changed from mostly grass and dirt to mostly gravel and grass. The gravel was more like ballast stones you would find underneath railroad tracks — about the size of ping pong balls.

I was disappointed in this trail, as the other Licking County trails l've ridden were paved and well maintained. Maybe this trail is still in its initial stages and not fully developed. It has potential. It is mostly shaded, and has a few interesting sites. It has a small covered bridge over a creek as the trail passes by the State of Ohio’s Fish Hatchery. The end of the trail south of Interstate 70 parallels parts of what remains of the Ohio Canal. The trail ends near Top Cat Concrete on Walnut Road (OH-79). Walnut Road is also the county line between Ohio's Licking and Fairfield counties.
The remnants of the Ohio canal continue south toward Buckeye Lake. I think that Fairfield County should consider extending this trail from its current Walnut Road end to the northern shore of Buckeye Lake which would certainly give this trail more utility.

At present, I would not recommend this trail for biking unless you were riding a mountain or fat-tired bike. It definitely is not for narrow tired street bikes. At best, for right now, I'd leave it for pedestrians to hike.
