Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail

Closed Section

May, 2018 by mcbraemer

Trail looked promising from Pickerington Ponds going north towards Reynoldsburg. However after a few miles, and just north of Portman Park the trail is closed and apparently under MAJOR construction. Not trusting the safety of the nearby side streets to bypass the construction zone and get up to Refugee Rd by Hines Dr. I had to double back to the Ponds.

Lowe's Drive Trail

Why is this Trail Listed in TrailLink?

January, 2018 by orangedoug

I rode this trail in May of 2017 along with the other 2 trails in Wilmington, Ohio that are listed in TrailLink. The Lowe's Drive Trail is what I would catagorize as a retail/commercial trail. It is approximately 3/4 of a mile long. It connects to the 4-C Bicentennial Trail via a multi-use trail in Williams Memorial Park. This trail simply parallels the road that the Lowe's Home Improvement Store is on and passes by a factory (Timbertech), a grain elevator, and the Wilmington Water Treatment Facility.

My issue with this particular trail has to do with it's purpose. Was it constructed for bicycle commuting to commercial and retail areas of Wilmington? Is it ultimately a link of a much bigger future citywide trail network? I don't really know. I recently learned that the rail line that this trail crosses over is being converted into the Clinton-Fayette Friendship Trail in nearby Sabina, Ohio so i guess there is the possibility that sometime in the future these trails could be linked.

4-C Bicentennial Trail

A Short Metropark Greenway

January, 2018 by orangedoug

The 4-C Bicentennial Trail is what I would categorize as a MetroPark trail. It is approximately 1.8 miles long and has a few short climbs that are steeper than what you would find on a rail trail. This trail is connected to Wilmington, Ohio's Luther Warren Peace Path rail trail by way of an on-street/sidewalk connector trail called the Q-Path Urban Trail. The 4-C Bicentennial Trail actually starts at a small playground just off of Wall Street, runs through Lytle Creek Nature Preserve, and ends up running to and through Williams Memorial Park and ends at Rombach Avenue. If you would cross Rombach Avenue you would then connect with the Lowe's Drive Trail. By combining all these small trails, the city of Wilmington has the start of a nice trail network. Perhaps, plans are to encircle the city in the future and then connect to other trails in Clinton County.

Luther Warren Peace Path

Part of a Larger City of Wilmington Trail Network

January, 2018 by orangedoug

The Luther Warren Peace Path is an actual rail trail. It is approximately 1.3 miles long. It appears that it may be able to be extended beyond it's present end point to the West at South Nelson Avenue. However, it would probably take some creativity as across this street is the driveway to the Wilmington Landfill. Extending this trail to the east does not seem possible as it appears that the Luther Warren was just a spur to an existing rail line that crosses Grant Street.

The Luther Warren is one of three trails in Wilmington that are listed here in TrailLink. The other two trails are the 4-C Bicentennial Trail and the Lowe's Drive Trail. The Luther Warren and the 4-C Bicentennial are connected by a marked on-road/sidewalk route designated as the Q-Path Urban Trail by the city of Wilmington. The Q-Path apparently also connects the campus of Wilmington College to these other bike trails. Combining all these trails in an out and back ride I rode a little over 9 miles in May of 2017.

Heritage Rail-Trail

November, 2017 by randyeldridge2

Good trail for biking. A great use for an older trail. Some roots are poking up at the end but generally smooth and flat

Camp Chase Trail

Great condition, lots of miles and not crowded

October, 2017 by 2cvmail

Great way to get in and out of the city, and it’s fairly scenic once you get outside the city. A rails w/trails, so it’s straight and flat and great for biking.

Camp Chase Trail is a new part of the 320 mile Ohio-to-Erie Trail, and this section is much less crowded than other popular bike trails in Columbus.

Wilson Road Park has seasonal bathrooms, a bike repair station and a water fountain, and there is also bike repair stations at Wilson Rd Park and at the base of the Hilltop Connector Bridge.

Columbus Westside Running Club maintains the Trail with monthly litter cleanups. Give it a try if you haven’t already!

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

Nice trail through metro areas

October, 2017 by fhunker

Very pretty trail from Westerville south to Three Creeks Park. A trail of bridges--more than other local trails for the distance travelled. So far, in good shape, but much of this trail is new so one would expect it to be. Far less traffic than the Olentangy Trail to the west, so for a north-south route in the metro Columbus area, hard to beat.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

New Jamestown B&B

October, 2017 by sheldyna

I had to tell all my friends about this! I hear there is a hotel motel or bed and breakfast and I think bike shop bike club opening right on the bike path Xenia Jamestown connector right on Verity St. & S. Church. That is so cool and convenient, we use to have to travel back to Xenia or Jeffersonville that is not on the east portion bike path. I will also be the first to try the inn, tent or room with hot water and soft bed and air conditioning or heat depending when I go.

Olentangy Trail

Great bike trail

September, 2017 by fish_boat

We went to Columbus for a few days and my son took me to the Olentangy Bike Path. What a great path for biking, jogging or just walking. We road bikes. We decided to do the whole trail. Where we parked we went south till the trail turned into the Scioto Greenway Trail. Turned back there and when we got back to where we parked we went north till the trail was closed between Worthington Hills Park and Olentangy River. That section is supposed to be open in late 2017. Great scenery. Through wooded areas, past soccer fields, over bridges, under roads and past the Ohio State University campus. All together we road 24 miles. Just one small criticism. There are a couple places where you could get confused which way to go if you never road this trail before. My son has road it many times so it was not a problem for us. I highly recommend taking this trail if you are in the Columbus area. I know I will ride this again in the future

We love this trail easy ride and very spacious path.

Pickaway Trail

Pickaway Trail

August, 2017 by akerns1970

There is parking at Canal Park where a person could take the "Tow Path" Trail. It joins with the Pickaway Trail. The trail is very primitive at this point but once improvements are made, it will be a nice trail. About one mile of the trail is on a gravel road that travels through farm fields. There is also an old cemetery along the gravel road/trail. The cemetery is from the late 1700s to mid-1800s. There are some newer interments in the cemetery also. The trail continues onto a portion where there is a former railroad. There are remnants of old railroad ties along the trail also. It also joins up with another trail that travels along Calamus Swamp. The trail does have taller grass so dress accordingly Overall, inrate it as a three due to being able to see the potential of the trail. Once improvements are made, this trail could very easily move up in ratings.
