The path is very nice! We found a nice parking lot/rest area on Zion church road. The path is kept up nicely and shaded most of the way with a tree line. One side is the canal/tree line and the other side is fenced nicely. The way the trees face it would block morning sun. We walked around 7pm. It took about an hour to walk for 4.5-5mile walk into Delphos. Be aware it does abruptly end and turn into grass by a trailer park, but it is easy to get to the road from there.
I recently rode an out-and-back ride on the 1.6 mile long North Lewisburg Trail. I started in North Lewisburg in Ohio's Champaign County and rode out to the Pottersburg Bridge found at the end of the trail just off of Innskeep-Cratty Road (County Rd. 163). The highlight of this short trail is the Pottersburg Bridge; a wooden covered bridge that was moved to this trail in order to preserve the historical structure. The surface of the trail is asphalt which is still in fairly good condition but it is beginning to show its age as there are several rough spots caused by tree root uplift.
This rail trail was built upon an abandoned Erie Railroad rail line. The southern end of this same line starts as the Simon Kenton Trail, which currently ends at Urbana, Ohio. This creates the potential to expand this trail and connect it to a much longer regional trail. However, I don't know if there is the will to see such a project through to completion in this mostly agricultural area of Ohio. Currently, this trail is one that serves just the local residents.
I liked that the trail followed the creek so it wasn't so straight. Having both parks and parking lots gives trail users quite a few options. I drove into the Schwartzkopf Park, even though the GPS in my vehicle told me to go a bit further south. It made me wonder if I was really at the southern endpoint. I finally found a sign for the trail, but it was small and located on a post by a trash can. Maybe a more prominent sign is in the dream phase.
The trail follows a stream, is flat and relatively straight. It is a nice trail for the area. I started at the bridge, went to the endpoint in North Lewisburg, and then turned around. My cycle-computer clocked the roundtrip at 3.5 miles. The write-up by TraiLink said there was a second bridge part way on the trail, but I only saw the foundations for one. There was a port-a-pot at the parking lot by the covered bridge. I was there mid April of 2021.
Trail was well marked and was not crowded. We have done the Rentschler Woods to Fairfield and it can be very crowded. Not particularly scenic but a good ride.
Trail needs a little work (roots and sticks) but nice short trail well marked. Bridge is closed with no indication as to why or how long it will be closed. We rode across adjacent car bridge and then confined on trail.
Nice short trail that links up with the Piqua Linear Trail and Great Miami trail for longer route. But the bridge is out until April 8,2021 according to sign.
Nice crushed stone surface. Went Bellefontaine to West Liberty, very quiet and peaceful. Received a wonderful frog serenade when passing a wetlands area! What a treat.
I live near this trail and use small portions of it frequently. I love the solitude and natural atmosphere.
Great scenery, unsuspecting calmness and tranquility.
I really enjoyed this trail. It was a great way to spend a few hours on the bike.
This was a pleasant trail through the woods and meadow. The surface is mainly wood chips, dirt and grass, which would be more suitable for wider tires, rather than a road bike with skinny tires. I used a touring bike with 28 mm tires and didn't have a problem. It might be harder if the trail was wet. Just depends on how comfortable you are on those types of trails. Definitely a good trail to hike. I biked a few of the loops and did 3 miles total, which didn't take that long. I did not go in the Discovery Center since it was closed at the time.
