Fall Ride

November, 2020 by vicki1960

We had a very warm Fall and it was great to get out and enjoy a fall ride. Biked from Countyline (Trumbull and Mahoning Counties) to Western Reserve in Canfield and back for a 25 mile round trip. Nice trail. The newly constructed tunnel under the OH turnpike is open. It's very nicely lit as well.

Loudonville Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathway

Pleasant Trail

November, 2020 by sjf0809

I found this trail to be pleasant. The write up said it was 1.5 miles, but I continued following the asphalt trail and went 2.5 miles between the park in Loudonville and the entrance to Mohican State Park. Nice trail.

Mohican Valley Trail

OK

October, 2020 by wierstheparty

We started in Danville and headed up toward the “Bridge of Dreams”. It was pretty but nothing spectacular. We thought we would just go to the north end and back but once we got through the bridge (full of road apples) it started getting a little more interesting on the Holmes county trail so we continued another 5 miles before returning back. Glad we took a photo op at the bridge. Spent the rest of the day hiking Lyons Falls which was gorgeous.

T. J. Evans Panhandle Trail

A Successful Example of Rail with Trail

October, 2020 by orangedoug

I rode nearly 20 miles on a round trip on the T.J. Evans Panhandle Trail. The trail appears to have been created on an abandoned spur that runs along an active rail line. I parked and started at a parking lot that abutted the railroad tracks at the corner of Marne and Licking Valley Roads near the center of the trail's length. I chose this particular starting point as it seemed to be the most visible of the parking lots along the trail. While other reviews here have mentioned a lack of parking along the trail, I would also add that there is also a lack of bathrooms or Porta-Johns along the trail as well.

I first headed east from Marne out to the eastern terminus of the trail at Felumlee Rd. The trail climbs as you head east. The slope is typical for a rail trail so you really aren't straining to climb but you are aware that you are climbing.

Once I returned from the eastern end, I pushed on to reach the trail's western terminus in Newark, Ohio. The western half of the trail is much more flat and the scenery becomes more urban and industrial. A highlight of the trail comes between Lambs Lane and Swans Road where you travel by the Longaberger Basket Building. The building looks like a giant picnic basket that the company sells. From here you will travel through an industrial area which will give way to a neighborhood of homes until you reach the end of the trail at North Morris Street.

As mentioned by other reviews here, there is a chain link fence that separates the trail and the railroad. While some find that this fence ruins what little scenic beauty they see in this trail, I think that it is a small price to pay to have a trail of decent length to ride on. There are many trails across the country that a trying to connect to a certain destination within a city or town but are finding completing their trails difficult because of the inability to get a rail with trail agreement worked out with a local railroad company. Those trail groups should inquire with the trail leaders in the city of Newark and Licking County, Ohio how they were able to successfully create this trail.

Despite the lack of parking and bathrooms I think the T.J. Evans Panhandle Trail is a nice trail, particularly if you live in the Newark, Ohio region.

Muskingum Recreational Trail

An Unfinished Trail That Has Potential

October, 2020 by orangedoug

I rode an out-and-back ride on the Muskingum Recreational Trail starting in Dresden, Ohio. You head south out of Dresden and ride along the West bank of the Muskingum River. In a few spots, the edge of the trail drops precipitously to the river below. Fortunately, most spots with the high steep banks have a fence in place to prevent you from sliding into the river. As you head further south the trail moves away from the river for a while until you reach the current southern end of the trail where you cross over the Muskingum River on a spectacular rail bridge about 30 to 40 above the surface of the water below. TrailLink.com lists this trail as two separate segments but I was able to ride through the undeveloped middle section.

While the recognized trail segments are paved, the middle section has an ash and cinder surface from the old rail bed that this trail is built upon. Parts of this undeveloped section, however, have been resurfaced with limestone gravel that has been rolled and packed. Orange construction ribbons that have been tied to the ends of some of the branches in this area seem to indicate that there will be additional paving to this section sometime in the future. I did find the the going in this undeveloped section particularly slow.

This is a beautiful trail, but I was surprised that I had the trail entirely to myself, except for the one fellow on a lawn mower who was blowing leaves off of the trail. Being able to see the trail surface throughout my return trip was much appreciated as I was able to avoid a few of the bumps and dips in the trail surface that had previously hidden by a blanket of fallen fall leaves.

I'd think that should the Muskingum County Commissioners and the citizens of the county decide to finish the Muskingum Recreational Trail and then connect it with the Zane's Landing Trail running North out of Zanesville you'd create a beautiful destination trail for this region of Ohio.

Kokosing Gap Trail

Mount Vernon to Gambier

October, 2020 by vicki1960

Nice bike ride from Mount Vernon to Gambier and back. Great trail though mainly wooded sections. You will cross a few nice old rail bridges on this section. And over the Kokosing River a few times.
We parked at the old train station in Mt Vernon and took the connector which is about a mile long and under construction. They are re-doing it.
We biked to Kenyan College.
Lunch near the trail at an old Diner in Mount Vernon and the food was delicious. After the ride there is an ice cream place a few hundred yards from the trail in Mount Vernon. Between Mount Vernon and Gambier there is nothing so make sure you have water/snacks.
Connecting trail are Heart of Ohio, Mohican Valley and Holmes County. All asphalt paved in great condition.

Zane's Landing Trail

A Typical City Recreational Trail

October, 2020 by orangedoug

This rail trail starts at Zane's Landing Park on the East Bank of the Muskingum River just north of the city of Zanesville's Y Bridge in downtown. Its main purpose seems to be to connect the city's youth athletic fields with downtown Zanesville. The trail parallels the river bank and heads north toward Jaycee Riverside Park and ends at Washington Street in Washington Township. The trail is flat and paved. The surface from Zane's Landing to the boat launch in Riverside Park is smooth and fairly new. The rest of the trail north of the boat launch is bumpy and jarring as there are a lot of cracks within the pavement. Hopefully this section that parallels most of the athletic fields in Riverside Park will be resurfaced next year. I was the lone cyclist on the trail on this Fall Tuesday afternoon, however, I encountered perhaps a dozen pedestrians out walking on the trail during my ride. I'd be curious to see how busy the trail becomes in the evenings or on Saturday afternoons when there are numerous youth soccer or baseball games going on in Riverside Park.

I'd like to add that should the Muskingum County Commissioners and the citizens of the county decide to connect the Zane's Landing Trail with the Muskingum Recreational Trail running south out of Dresden you'd develop a beautiful regional destination trail.

National Road Bikeway

A Visually Appealing Well-Maintained Trail

October, 2020 by orangedoug

I rode a 5 mile round trip on this trail on a beautiful fall day. The trail is well maintained and in its short length has several interesting visual features such as two tunnels, a gazebo, and a 40 foot high trestle. Small markers along the way commemorate the conversion of the once rail line into a trail. The tunnels run under Interstate 70 and US-40 which historically is the old National Road from which the trail gets its name. For a rail trail it features quite a bit of elevation gain over its 2.5 mile length with a gain of about 223 feet. However, since it is a rail trail, the rise is never physically taxing. The only reason I did not rate this trail as a 5-star trail is because its short length leaves you wanting it to be longer.

Kokosing Gap Trail

Danville to Gambier

October, 2020 by vicki1960

Danville to Gambier and back for a nice ride. Trail is mainly flat, asphalt paved in good condition. There are a few bridges to cross along the ride also through open farmlands and some wooded areas. Trail services in Danville....food and water. There is a grocery store, sub shop and Dollar Store located near the parking area.

Mohican Valley Trail

Enjoyable Trail

October, 2020 by vicki1960

End of September 2020 we rode this trail coming from Danville. It is all downhill from Danville to Brinkhaven. So we pedaled back up to Danville. Trail is mostly shaded and solid tar and chip seemed to be very smooth. We accessed this trail off Kokosing Gap in Danville. If you stay on the trail though the Bridge of Dreams covered bridge, you can connect onto the Holmes County trail for an additional 7 miles.

Holmes County Trail

Two Rides, Ride #2 on detached section

October, 2020 by vicki1960

Ride #2 we biked from Glenmont to Brinkhaven where the Mohican Valley Trail connects at the Knox County line. This 7.3 miles section is literally uphill both ways. Parked in Glenmont and pedaled uphill for 3.5 miles to the highest point at Holmes County road 75. Towards to crest I actually got off and pushed. At the top there is a mile marker 3.5 off to the side of the trail. Possibly need to add elevation to that marker! Crossing over County Road 75 it's a downhill coast to the Knox County line at Brinkhaven where the Mohican Valley trail connects. Turn around and do it all over again...uphill to County Road 75 then downhill coast back into Glenmont.
Trail is asphalt paved having been constructed in 2017. There is a separate lane for horses and bikes. This detached section of the trail is approx 8 road miles to the mainline in Killbuck.

Holmes County Trail

Two Rides, Ride #1 on Mainline

October, 2020 by vicki1960

We biked on the 15.3 mile mainline which runs from Fredericksburg to Killbuck. Trail is flat at fast. You can really clip along. Miles are marked in white paint along the trail. Goes through wooded sections and open farmland sections. Two lanes, one for bikes and one for horses. But it doesn't appear the horses follow the signs because there were several piles of manure on the bike lanes. You will pass through the outskirts of Millersburg which has places to eat and stores. Fredericksburg end of the trail there is a pizza shop. Nothing in Killbuck except a Dollar Store a mile off the trail which wasn't bad to bike to it. There are a few parking lots along the trail. We stayed between Millersburg and Berlin. We also rode the detached section of the trail. See separate review.
