Smooth, shaded, easy ride path. Good for kids.
My husband and I rode an 8 mile section from the trailhead parking lot by the intersection of route 60 and route 20, by the old historic bridge there. The path crosses route 60, which jogs towards Vermilion, and passes a nice pond and small park area with covered benches, a work out station and a portable restroom. Wakeman has a pub, a coffee shop and an East of Chicago Pizza right uptown near the Gazebo at the park for refueling.
This is a great great trail.
We started biking at bowman park which is the beginning of the trail. We crossed Tremaimsville Rd., Sylvania ave, Berdan, Central avenue and Monroe street. It looks like they are going to be putting a pedestrian crossing lights on these roads which will be nice. We continued on the path past Monroe Street instead of following the chessie trail. The bike path continued on straight …. we were Parallel to Douglas Road. We crossed over Kenwood St which Ottawa park is there once you cross. I think that was about 3 1/2 miles. We continued on the path that took us into the University of Toledo campus. We rode through there and connected onto the Toledo university baked trail. That trail is over 6 miles long so you can go as far as you’d like. We went up to Richards Road and turned around and came back and our total trip was 11 miles. But you could make it any distance you would like :-) path just outside the park up until Bancroft. We crossed Douglas Road and follow the path into the Toledo University. We rode through the campus until we got to the UT trail
Lived in Flat Rock for four years.Ran these trails 4-5 days each week.Varied which Metro Park trail I ran each time.Bought the Metropark annual pass which is a great bargain.The two mile connecting trail from Flat Rock makes access easier.If you bike the entire trail you'll only cross two major roads and one active rail track.These trails are beautful,rarely very crowded,and well maintained.After a heavy snow,the trails are usually plowed within a few days.No longer live in the area but sure do miss running these trails.
I drove half an hour to try out this trail, and ended up riding only 3 miles before turning back. Poorly marked trail and detours made it a chore to stay on course, then when I finally got to what looked like the most interesting section, there was a sign stating bicycles were not allowed. On the bright side, most of the people were friendly, and the students painting the underpass were so nice that I wanted to park my bike and help them paint!
PS: The parking lot at Huron Bridge Park is small, but if you cross the bridge into Bandemer Park, there is much more parking available.
We attempted to ride this trail in two different towns. The trail has not been kept up. Some areas had Thick Loose gravel and other areas it was a grassy field with no path. We couldn’t ride it. No stars can be given!
The trail is a mixed bag. The northern end is presently under development. I rode the trail in early October 2021, and they were in the process of paving the northern 3 or 4 miles. It will be wide and nice, while at the same time traversing multiple crossroads that will require you to stop more often then desired, As you move south, the trail connects with Ottawa park, which also includes multiple connected trails that are in pretty good condition and cut through woods and recreation areas, definitely one of the nicer aspects of the trail. Continuing further south, most riders will be disappointed. The trail, while paved, is old with multiple tree trunk bumps, (roots that have heaved the asphalt) some that will jar your nerves as much as your hands and seat. At the far south end, the trail will once again become worth riding. It's not a trail you will want to travel a distance to come ride. But if you are local and just want to get out and go, this might be a good option. I am semi local, and probably won't go out of my way again until more improvements are done, especially when Toledo has so many great trails within a short drive multiple directions. (See university trail, wabash, or Towpath, as three examples)
Excellent and easy to access through Hudson mills metro park; poor signage through Dexter. The portion that is marked is fabulous.
The trail in through the middle is a little rough and not very scenic. The outside road around the island has spectacular views! I would highly recommend doing that.
This trail would be so much nicer but need mowed on the sides, better signs and trail markers. We are from Pennsylvania and it was nice to see the river and would have loved to see the rowing team practicing hence our neighbor is a rowing coach. Will or would we come back to this trail…..not anytime soon….
If you're looking for a very easy, flat ride that traverses through lush, green countryside (at least in mid-August), this is one for you. Really, this trail was in remarkably good shape. It's extremely straight (we celebrated the 3 or 4 curves!). Very few walkers and just a few bikers on a Saturday morning. The trail is wide (8 - 10 ft) and there are spotless bathroom facilities at both ends. Park at the Black Swamp trail head--the trail head that's listed on Google Maps is at a Montessori school and there are signs posted there that prohibit parking. 26 - 27 miles out and back on the Slippery Elm.
We rode the Slippery Elm in the morning and then drove over to Providence Park in Grand Rapids, Ohio (about 20 minutes from Bowling Green) and rode about 5 miles out and back of the 10 mile gravel Towpath Ohio - Erie through the woods in the afternoon. Totally contrasting experiences--really nice for one full day of biking, about 37 miles total. Found a great restaurant in Bowling Green--"The Clay Pot"--for dinner. Highly recommended if you're looking for slightly upscale, delicious food!
