Great tree canopy for majority of trail, the bait shop and Williams Dam are must sees. First few miles from Bedford start need attention, stone should be crushed and packed down and many wash outs need to be addressed

Vandalia Trail

I was not happy with the 2 Posts method of limiting trail traffic. I found them very intimidating to ride slowly through. How would a parent using the wide 2-child trailer be able to use this portion of the trail?

Great peaceful ride around Columbus. When not on trail, the path is on quiet city streets. The only small issue is on the south end of trail because you need to cross some busy city streets.

Ronald Reagan Parkway Trail

Solid Trail

March, 2020 by pereztrace2016

This trail has been connected from Stafford all the way to Brownsburg, which is really awesome. I love the area and the minimal foot traffic along the path. There is one section in need of a drain or ditch on the side in order to prevent sitting water and mud from getting on the pavement and making it slick. A few lights every quarter mile or so would be awesome as well!

B&O Trail

A Welcome Retreat

September, 2019 by davemarty54

My wife and I moved to the area just three months ago, but this trail has quickly become one of my favorite places to get away, usually on my bicycle. As others have said, it's mostly quiet and well maintained. In fact, as I rode this morning a man was slowly riding his three-wheeler and blowing fallen leaves off the trail. Much appreciated!
