Wednesday, March third, midday ride from Pope Lick north to William Miles Community Garden and back. 20 miles round trip. Concrete path was in excellent condition, the creek water was in the banks and the birds were chattering. Benches and picnic tables to enjoy the views and have a snack. Super nice day. Mostly walkers. Plenty of parking spaces. Safe and secure.
We love our Heritage Trail in Madison! Bob Greene does am excellent job keeping it up too! It's one of a few paths that will take you from the hilltop to historic downtown, one of the longest stretches of historic buildings in the US. It is super steep and hard to get back up, but if you're doing some cardio training, it's great. Going up the trail there are about 4 benches to rest on. I can usually get the kids up it using those. It has so many different and fun ways to hike it. You can continue following the railway tracks and go along the river all the way to the Madison-Milton Bridge and back again. You can go down it, then head up the old tracks back to the hilltop or you can also go down it, then head west and hook up with Clifty Falls SP. So many options!
Wide paved trail, fairly flat, lots of benches and restrooms. Even a dog park! View of the Ohio River and tug boats along sections of the trail. Beautiful trees through the trail. A definite do again trail!
Very nice trail! It has a steep incline so it might be difficult for children, strollers or those not in good shape.
We started at Pope Lick Park entrance, went to Broad Run Park, and then back, around 21 miles. The trail was either paved asphalt or concrete slabs. There were several bridges that crossed over the river. Several places to stop and use the bathroom. This app says there are bathrooms at Broad Run, but if there were, we could not find them and there were no signs, so we went back to the silo and used the restrooms there.
My wife and I are wanting to be outside and get some exercise. Riding this trail does the trick. Not to hilly but enough of a challenge for us. You ride through some nice woods and several fields. I think we saw about 25 rabbits on the trail last night. We also saw a turkey earlier this week. I should add that we are starting around 7pm so the trail is not to busy but it is still being used by lots of people. It is very clean and as I said a good ride.
This trail has a lot of potential so for the life of me I can't understand why the city of Columbus doesn't take advantage of it more by making tweaks that seem so simple to me. There are probably some restaurants along the way but I couldn't look for them I was so busy trying to figure out where the h*** I was supposed to go without getting hit by a car. Parts of this trail are very nice but it's disconnected at numerous points along the way and there is no signage whatsoever for guidance. Absolutely NO SIGNAGE AT ALL. ANYWHERE. You can wind up taking a wrong turn because this trail intersects with others, as we did, and take your $2000 bike into a mudslide area, as we did. And if it's rained at all before your visit, plan on a swampy ride. If you are a local it might be okay, but if you aren't and are looking for a nice ride, I'd go somewhere else. Not impressed. We won't be back.
Great peaceful ride around Columbus. When not on trail, the path is on quiet city streets. The only small issue is on the south end of trail because you need to cross some busy city streets.
With some steady uphills at both ends, this is a walk that shouldn’t be too difficult. The approaches are asphalt, all the bridge surfaces are concrete so it’s not forgiving at all. Obviously there is no real shade, so choose your time wisely. Bring hydration and sunscreen! From parking area to parking area is about 2.5 miles so you can get a 5 mile round trip. Busy at times with bikes, runners and walkers, but it’s wide enough you don’t feel crowded. Traffic noise is very loud unfortunately given the amount of truck traffic.
My dog and I have completed every bit of this loop that has been completed. We have a picture of every mile marker I will never forget doing this with my dog. I don’t thank he will get to see it be completed nor will l
We started at the Ohio River Green Way sign parking lot east of Falls Of the Ohio State Park. There's a pretty steep grade after crossing the road then a gradual decline as the path follows the top of the levee for quite a distance. The path is paved and in perfect condition with some interesting points of interest along the way. Highly recommended!
Kudos to the folks that designed this addition to the Lewis & Clark Bridge. A great way to connect Indiana and Kentucky for more cycling/hiking possibilities. I rode across at night and look forward to riding it during the day to really take in the scenery. Hope they expand on this beautiful trail riding it in
