The North Coast Inland Trail has now been paved between Kipton and Wakeman. Enjoy it!
Biked from Elmore to Fremont (and back). Very nice flat asphalt paved trail. Trail goes through a few very small towns. Along this trail you will see plenty of cornfields (in season) and pass by numerous working farms. This is rural Ohio at it's best. You will also have a view of the Ohio Turnpike on several occasions. There are some wooded sections of the trail. Trail surface in very good condition.
Trail towns along the trail are welcoming and friendly.
It's approx 10 miles between Elmore and Fremont. Each half-mile is marked with a sign. In the trail towns there are mileage signs as well.
Parked in Elmore at the old train station. There are places to eat and shop in Elmore. Parking in Elmore is at Ory Park on Rice Street. There is a bike shop and rental in Elmore. In Fremont there are places to eat and shop but to access them, you have to street ride. The trail continues on the other side of Fremont.
An all around great trail and fun ride!
Very nice ride through verdant NW Oh farmland. Immaculately maintained; not so much as a cigarette butt in view. Much of the trail is shaded, making for a comfortable ride even on a hot day. Only disappointment was a sadly underperforming water fountain in NBaltimore.
We went to Bowman Park and found a crushed stone trail. Went to first street and still crushed stone. Don’t know where if ever it becomes asphalt.
We live between the trails at the eastern end near Jerome Road. Both forks are great for biking until they end as described in the data, and both become paths for hiking or horseback riding but cannot recommend for biking. That being said, there are consistent stories whenever you stop to talk with other bikers that the paving completion into Fulton county to make this a full 60+ biking trail are at least in the early planning stages. Hopefully this can be done in 2019 as that would make this a real jewel trail for this part of Ohio. The paved parts currently available are great and highly recommend a diversion off the north trail into Oak Openings Park whenever you visit and ride the trails.
I rode the Slippery Elm trail Sunday for the first time. It is an enjoyable trail with a fair amount of variety. I especially enjoyed the cool shade in the forested sections. The trailhead in North Baltimore is very nice with paved parking and clean restrooms. They have covered a lot of cracks in the pavement with a sealant that has made the surface a bit rough in places but otherwise it is in good condition.
Wow! First time on the trail and parked in West Unity. Beautiful hiking path with canopy of trees for cover. What a jewel for NW Ohio.
I will be visiting and joining the Conservancy.
In May of 2017 I put in 30.3 miles riding out and back on the Lorain County section of the North Coast Inland Trail from the Gateway trailhead in Elyria to 1.5 miles west of Kipton, OH. In Elyria, the trail extends beyond the Gateway trailhead up to the Black River Reservation Metropark. However, I would suggest that this section could be tricky as traffic will be heavy around the commercial/retail area near Midway Mall. The trail itself is a wide paved path in good shape except for the last 1.5 miles, which starting at Baird Road switches to medium sized limestone gravel -- probably not a good idea for skinny-tired bikes. West of Kipton the trail ends and you would have to ride the roads to reach the next completed section. Bring sunscreen with you as the further west you go the more open the trail becomes as you get into farming country.
According to ohiobikeways.net this 15 mile section is part of the 67.5 miles of trail currently open. When completely done this trail will stretch from Elyria to Toledo, OH and will cover about 270 miles making it probably the penultimate East-West trail in Ohio.
The Wabash Cannonball Trail in Fulton, Henry, and Williams Counties in Ohio is owned and maintained by our all volunteer group, the Northwest Ohio Rails to Trails Association, NORTA. We have regular work days on the trail, and try to keep up with maintenance on the sections we own.
In the summer of 2017, we were able to acquire "ground up pavement" for the trail surface in Williams county. A larger tire bike will have no problems on that section. If you like to "mountain" bike, the rest of the trail is rideable.
Sometime in 2018, the eastern most section of the trail in Fulton County will be paved to our offices at St. Rt. 109. We're working to find the safest way to get around the active train track in that area.
The Trail also has a section of certified North County Scenic Trail. Check it out. If you are hiking the NCT and need a place to camp or just need a Trail Angel, contact us.
We look forward to meeting you! And bring your loppers and rakes to help keep the trail cleared.
P.S. Yes, it's flat and straight. That's how the Wabash Cannonball Train was able to reach the speeds it did!
Everyone was so nice on this trail! That, to me, just enhances the experience even more! I am a novice rider and my husband an experienced rider. This was perfect for us! We were in town for a tournament at the university and brought our bikes. Easy, ample parking at the trail head past Wal-Mart.
Trail no longer has exposed tree roots as the oath has been covered with crushed stone.
I started Labor Day 2017 in Monroeville in Huron County at the City Park below the dam. Its a short ride up the hill to pick up the trail at MM 50.5. The surface is finely crushed stone. The trail goes west stopping on the outskirts of Bellevue. Good signage helps you navigate to where the trail resumes at TR177 or TR292 on the west side. Try to make time to visit the Mad River and Nickle Plate RR Museum.
From that point on to SR105 just outside Elmore its nicely paved. I was expecting it to be all soybeans and corn but the trail was often in a narrow band of trees and made it seem wore woodland than farmland.
The small towns of Clyde, Lindsey, and Elmore were charming and very well kept. You can tell they like their trail.
In Fremont you have to take some public roads. Most are through residential areas. There is a very short section of 4 lane highway (Business US20) but the shoulder is wide and paved. The signs easily guide you through this section.
A very nice trail and you can make a really nice ride by doing all 76 miles from Elyria to Elmore. A lot of the trail in Huron County (Bellevue to Norwalk) is hard packed crushed stone. West of Kipton, leave the trail at Baird Rd and ride north on Baird then west on Bates to Lincoln then south on SR60 to Wakeman. These are very nice quiet country roads. Again the trail becomes a bike route through Norwalk but its not bad. Follow the signs which take you one block behind Main Street with its on-street parking.
