Alum Creek Greenway Trail

Well maintained and a great 50 miles down and back. Very well marked.Just be slow on the curves. You never know who will be on the other side.

Big Walnut Trail

10.6 miles? Maybe if you drive to each section. There are some nice parts, but very short, as the trail is broken up in to smaller sections.Creekside Gahanna is nice and the section by Hoover has a nice view.

Meredith State Road Trail

new section of trail complete

April, 2021 by hegregg2004

A new section of this trail was created probably last summer/fall. We rode this today and the new section is probably 2-3 miles. it runs south of Meredith State Rd alongside US 36/Rt 3 crossing over 605 and stopping just about halfway between North Condit and Sunbury. Also, at the northern terminus it looked like some clearing was underway to connect it to the heart of ohio trail, but thats just a guess. Anyway, its real flat and mostly tree covered with a nice little ravine at one point. Good stuff

Big Walnut Trail

very disconnected trail

March, 2021 by deb.merritt2458

Very disconnected. Multiple small trails intersections and signs are not clear going north to south.

Great American Rail-Trail

best trail ever

wonderful trip across America

Kokosing Gap Trail

Very Enjoyable

March, 2021 by robertpurtell

Rode the segment from Mt Vernon to Gambier, and back. It's early in the season, so the foliage isn't out yet, but you can see where this would be a beautiful ride.

Thomas W. Hopper Legacy Trail

Trails connected

March, 2021 by sjf0809

I rode this trail on March 9, 2021 after having parked at the Depot in Sunbury. The Sandel Legacy Trail started just NE of the depot, went behind the building and seamlessly connected to the Thomas W. Hopper Legacy Trail, also or previously called the Galena Brick Trail. Only because of the signs alongside the trail, did I know that I was on a different trail. Signs identify various trees are along the trail. There are also many extensions going into the subdivisions being built. It also went by the Galena Shale and Brick Factory. Once I got to the end of the trail where it met the road in Galena, I turned around, pedaled past the Depot and on some of the streets in Sunbury until I got on the Meredith State Road Trail. Then I turned around and went back to my car. The total distance on the three trails was 6 miles.

North Coast Inland Trail (Sandusky and Ottawa Counties)

Rails next to Trail

November, 2020 by pauerd

I had the chance to ride the whole NCIT from Genoa (newest part of trail) to Elyria. So many great restored train stops, bridges, and even railroad museum right on the trail. Active rail line next to trail for about 10 miles.
Most of trail is paved now but with some sections of loose gravel or even large ballast I would recommend at least a gravel or cross bike/tires.

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

worth riding

November, 2020 by jp318107

This trail is amazing!! You can get more miles if it’s taken from Plumb road past Groveport.

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.

T. J. Evans Trail

A Particularly Scenic Trail on a Fall Day

November, 2020 by orangedoug

I did an out-and-back ride on this trail on a sunny October day. I started in Newark, Ohio and rode northwest toward Johnstown. If you start in this direction you will start out with a very flat ride between Newark and Alexandria. Once you reach Alexandria you will start a manageable yet steady climb to Johnstown where the trail ends. Along the way you transition from a city to a smaller towns and then into agricultural and rural areas. The trail is lined with trees for much of the way, but it opens up quite a bit in the middle of the trail as you travel through a number of farms. The fall colors were spectacular.

Some of the previous reviews of this trail complained that the trail was not well-kept and required quite a bit of maintenance because the trail surface was not up to road bike standards. I couldn't disagree more as I found the southern half of the trail in fine shape as if had been recently resurfaced. The northern half was not quite as smooth but I felt that there were not many areas where there was rough pavement. A few cracks here and a bit of tree root uplift there but not so much so that any stretch of trail would be considered in need of repair. On this day, there was a Licking County Park worker driving a pickup along the trail towing a leaf blower trailer blowing the fallen leaves off of the trail. Certainly, maintenance is being done to this, and probably all other, Licking County multi-use trails.

Newark Trail

A Commuter Trail That Could be the Backbone for a Regional Trail System

November, 2020 by orangedoug

I rode almost 10 miles on an out-and-back round trip on the Newark Trail. This is a paved commuter route that runs along the OH-16 freeway from the intersection with the T.J. Evans Trail just off of Cherry Valley Road on the western end to the Licking County Family YMCA off of 12th Street in the east. This trail needs to be extended further east to the county courthouse in downtown Newark, and then onto the T.J. Evans Panhandle Trail. When traveling eastward, once you reach the Y you can follow the designated route into downtown but you are no longer riding a trail nor riding in a bike lane but rather on streets marked with sharrows. There is an additional spur to this trail that crosses over OH-16 and connects to the campus of Ohio State University-Newark. This spur actually goes 1.5 miles further north of the OSU-Newark campus to Goose Pond Road which gives the trail user access to Rotary Park, the Lou & Gib Reese Ice Arena, and the Newark Area Soccer Association athletic fields. I only rode this spur up to the OSU- Newark campus as a weather front was coming in and I wanted to avoid getting wet.

For a commuter trail I think this trail has a number of unique sights and certainly a certain level of utility. However, I think that for this trail to become completely useful to the citizens of Newark, and Licking County in general, the city and county leaders must find a way to create an off-road trail or series of protected bike lanes from the eastern end of the Newark Trail into downtown Newark, and then on to connect to the T.J. Evans Panhandle Trail. It will be at this point where there will be a backbone of a regional trail system of which they can be proud.
