Thursday, October 15, 2020: Fall foliage is peak in Mercer County. It came early this year and is absolutely beautiful.
Enjoyable ride around the lake on the trail. Some areas were very coveredd with leaves other areas the wind had blown the leaves off into the woods.
Trail is mostly through wooded area.
This is a great trail to enjoy a peaceful leisurely bike or horseback ride for a few hours. The scenery is beautiful. The trail is mostly shaded. The trail is grass covered in spots. There were very few people. There are several gated stops along the way which makes the trail harder for horseback riding. Fun ride.
We completed another 10 miles of this trail. Beautiful day! This time we started at the trailhead in Orwell. Love this trail. Very well maintained throughout. Mostly flat, however, this is one of those trails that you will pedal no matter which direction you head but nothing intense. Just a great ride.
We have done this trail many times over the years. We love that it is a challenging loop trail. Many rolling hills and a few steep ones too. Shady for the most part depending on the time of the year. Trail well maintained.
Trail could certainly use some help. Mostly grass with some sections where there is a little gravel. Very bumpy. We started at the Spillway which for the most part is dead center of the trail. Nothing is marked as to beginning or end; just kind of stops at both ends. If you're looking for short and flat, but rough, this is the trail for you.
Team Dash is a husky and wheelchair team. The Rails to Trails greenway has been the best by far for Team Dash to get in some miles. Today we did 7 miles. Love it x 100
In addition to the nearly 10 miles of the Oil Creek State Park Trail, you can access this trail for a safe way to get to Titusville. Nice paved trail.
Enjoy this trail very much traveling through the State Park. Plenty of shade and a very quiet ride.
We parked in Petroleum Center (or Centre...take your pick). There is a lot at the Park Office .Rest rooms and picnic shelters nearby.
Traveled North on the trail to the Titusville end at Drake Well. Saw some deer from a distance.
Once at the North end of the trail we crossed the road to access Queen City Trail for a few additional miles.
In Titusville there are places to eat and purchase water if you need.
You can also bike over to nearby Drake Well park. It's open, seasonal.
Nice long paved trail makes it great if you want to tackle a Metric Century Ride. We got in 63 miles.
Parked in Orwell and biked South to Champion and continued until it connects with the Garrett Wonders Trail. Took that into Warren.
In Warren we were able to get water at a BP Station a block off the trail.
Biked back to Orwell and had lunch at the Mexican restaurant steps away from the trail. They are very accommodating to cyclists, and we also met other cyclists having lunch as well.
After lunch headed North towards Rock Creek then back to Orwell where our cars were parked.
Trail is mostly rural except near Champion and farther South (Warren area).
There are no restrooms along the trail and/or places to get water. So do some research ahead of time. I suggest parking in the middle and this way when you pass by your car you can refill water bottles and stop for snacks from your car .
Trail is flat at fast asphalt in very good condition.
This trail is simply one of the finest trails I've found in the Ohio region. I've ridden it end to end three times. Each time I discover a somewhat improved version! The pavement of the permanent trail detour near Rock Creek onto the CO-19 is the most significant one and the extension into Warren the next. For those who want to ride without hills, this is the place to come. There is a cost however. The rider is constantly pedaling with the same leg muscles and is constantly pedaling! The scenery along the route is terrific with lots of green "tunnels" to ride through. I give a slight nod to the area north of the I-90 tunnel for it's scenery, maintenance, and variety until the trail enters into the Ashtabula city limits. The northern terminus is very abrupt onto a city street, railroad tracks and a mini-park to take a break at.
Some things to consider for this ride. Bring lots of water. There are no drinking fountains or commercial locations to get water. There are hardly any restrooms along the way. Orwell seems to have a port-a-potty that easily accessible. There are no restaurants or vending machines near the trail, so bring your own nourishment if you are riding the entire trail. There are a few places to eat in Orwell, but one must bike to them.
Paved the whole way and fairly flat. Good for kids and slower cyclists too.
Great bike trail. The details here as well as the brochure map state there are restrooms at the Sunside Trailhead. I pass through there every other day and have never seen restrooms. Did the remove them?
