Fishing Line Trail

Nice, Easy Trail

July, 2021 by bsfranklin314

A few hills, but for the most part, pretty easy trail. Well maintained. A few spots where you have to go on county roads.

Fishing Line Trail

good trail

July, 2021 by kp_blessed

Started in Rome City and road to Kendallville and back it was very enjoyable A lot of areas that are dense with trees

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Spencerville to delphos

May, 2021 by millecs

The path is very nice! We found a nice parking lot/rest area on Zion church road. The path is kept up nicely and shaded most of the way with a tree line. One side is the canal/tree line and the other side is fenced nicely. The way the trees face it would block morning sun. We walked around 7pm. It took about an hour to walk for 4.5-5mile walk into Delphos. Be aware it does abruptly end and turn into grass by a trailer park, but it is easy to get to the road from there.

Ride info

October, 2020 by dblunk33

Great trail to ride , the hog farm near Williamsburg smells terrible and at least 3 times big Rottweiler dogs have chased us and nearly wrecked us at the hog farm entrance. Very scary and dangerous. We ride 5 days a week and don’t see them everyday but potentially a terrible situation. Other than that a great ride and well maintained.

Great trail

Blue River Trail

Fair Bike Trail

September, 2020 by sprite_51

Several hills on the trail, with turns at the end. Some sharp turns and narrow lanes that would be hard to have two bikes on at the same time. Stretches of the trail are near the highway, but overall a quiet ride.

Pufferbelly Trail

Shaded, well cared for

September, 2020 by lindadaintymyers

Beautiful September afternoon to ride this trail. Gets lots of use but people nice. Can enjoy Salamon Farm and the sunflower fields in September.

Pufferbelly Trail

Very family friendly trail

September, 2020 by rscher

This is an excellent trail that is very well travelled by bikers, walkers, runners and skaters. The majority is tree covered and very comfortable. The trail is well maintained and has plenty of directional and safety signage. Ample parking at each end. A favorite ride in the city!

Inline skating

July, 2020 by hollyring1224

Drove to Richmond and skated north 12 miles. The only negative is the pig farm you have to pass. The smell is atrocious and as a vegan it’s even more disgusting. Gorgeous gorgeous trail! Smoothly paved, little to no debris. Would do it again in a second!

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

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.
