Love the areas around the trail.
I saw this trail was recommended or inline, so I thought I would try it on roller skates. Taking the Sunbury trail head going toward Downtown I encountered 3 boardwalk bridges pretty quickly. Lots of sticks and other natural debris on the path, too. I put up my skates and took a walk instead! Maybe another portion of the trail would be more suited for skating?
Recently, on my way to ride several Central Ohio trails, I stopped in Mount Vernon to check out this new addition to the city's Downtown Connector Trail. I've ridden through Mount Vernon on several occasions while riding across Ohio on the Ohio to Erie Trail (OTET) route. The Downtown Connector is an important addition to the OTET. The trail links the Kokosing Gap Trail to the Heart of Ohio Trail. A vast improvement over riding the city's streets to make the appropriate connection back in 2013. Since my last trans-Ohio ride in 2019, an additional arm to the Downtown Connector has been added -- the River Route. The advantage to using the River Route is it allows users of the trail to pass underneath the South Main Street Bridge over the Kokosing River without having to wait for a crossing signal on this very busy roadway. The one disadvantage of this trail option is that it is subject to closure when the river's water levels are high. I appreciate Mount
Vernon's continued desire to find ways to improve the trail experience for those using the trail.
While this short mile long trail has a lot of utility in connecting two key trails in the Ohio to Erie Trail route, I still cannot grade the trail higher than 3 stars due to its short length and in comparison to the sights seen along the two trails that it connects.
I ran this train in the late afternoon after golfing at echo springs. Nice paved trail. Cars seem to go fast on some of the street crossings but there was not much traffic. Started in Johnstown. There is a small parking lot and 1 bathroom. I ran out 8 miles and turned back. Passed a parking lot and wished there was a porta potty. There is no bathroom for. Runner except at the entrance. Not sure where a female could go.
Straight line from Friendship Park to end of trail (connecting through Creekside and run through a neighborhood (.3 miles)) about 4.5 miles. If you take the turn off and run around the other trails and the park it might be worth another 4 miles.
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.
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.
A great find! A mostly flat paved trail. Special surprise of a ride-across creek crossing.
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
Only if Hocking Hills park would have bike trails then this wouldn't be my favorite trail in mid-Ohio. I love riding through the rock cliffs and even use the picture of the 1851 railway cut on my iPhone home screen. Easy trail, and it would be better if the state could snag some of those infrastructure dollars for shoring up the weak parts and resurfacing. Easy walk from the east Terminus to the larger cliffs as it's only about 1/2 mile from the parking lot. The river, and cliffs on the north side are also very scenic with kayakers floating down the river in the summer...
Very disconnected. Multiple small trails intersections and signs are not clear going north to south.
Amazing trail for dog walking or bycicle riding
