This is a nice trail through the trees, especially in the Fall when the leaves were turning yellow. The road crossings in the southern portion weren't bad when using the signals. The trail surface was in good shape.
Park in Butler and enjoy the fall colors! Clean park restrooms (and ice cream for veterans’ donation) in Bellville. Yes there are a few busy crossings but don’t let that stop you from enjoying this ride. Great coffee and pastries in Mansfield to end the day.
I’m glad I tried this trail. I was looking for a short ride so I went down and back on this trail for about 7.5 miles. Lots of turns, beautiful scenery, and several parking areas with access to the trail. It would be ideal for children because of the distance and since there is a nice playground at one of the parking area.
End of September 2020 we rode this trail coming from Danville. It is all downhill from Danville to Brinkhaven. So we pedaled back up to Danville. Trail is mostly shaded and solid tar and chip seemed to be very smooth. We accessed this trail off Kokosing Gap in Danville. If you stay on the trail though the Bridge of Dreams covered bridge, you can connect onto the Holmes County trail for an additional 7 miles.
Ride #2 we biked from Glenmont to Brinkhaven where the Mohican Valley Trail connects at the Knox County line. This 7.3 miles section is literally uphill both ways. Parked in Glenmont and pedaled uphill for 3.5 miles to the highest point at Holmes County road 75. Towards to crest I actually got off and pushed. At the top there is a mile marker 3.5 off to the side of the trail. Possibly need to add elevation to that marker! Crossing over County Road 75 it's a downhill coast to the Knox County line at Brinkhaven where the Mohican Valley trail connects. Turn around and do it all over again...uphill to County Road 75 then downhill coast back into Glenmont.
Trail is asphalt paved having been constructed in 2017. There is a separate lane for horses and bikes. This detached section of the trail is approx 8 road miles to the mainline in Killbuck.
We biked on the 15.3 mile mainline which runs from Fredericksburg to Killbuck. Trail is flat at fast. You can really clip along. Miles are marked in white paint along the trail. Goes through wooded sections and open farmland sections. Two lanes, one for bikes and one for horses. But it doesn't appear the horses follow the signs because there were several piles of manure on the bike lanes. You will pass through the outskirts of Millersburg which has places to eat and stores. Fredericksburg end of the trail there is a pizza shop. Nothing in Killbuck except a Dollar Store a mile off the trail which wasn't bad to bike to it. There are a few parking lots along the trail. We stayed between Millersburg and Berlin. We also rode the detached section of the trail. See separate review.
A lovely autumn afternoon biking on the trail with my bride of 20+ years. Autumn leaving changing before us, a well maintained trail, with very few others taking advantage of a 75 degree October day. We biked out and back 9 miles each for a total of 18 miles and enjoyed every moment. The trail is largely well screened helping buffer us from the breezy winds today. Great fun to see all of the farmers out in their fields harvesting. We did not experience any of the concerns highlighted in other’s reviews, nor did were we able to see the Bald Eagles.
Great trail but ultra crowded during OSU school months.
No way is this trail 22.5 miles. Not even 17.5. I have ridden this trail for many years - I get 13 miles and change from trailhead at Worthington Hills to downtown at Scioto Trail intersection.
I’ve ridden and walked this trail for 15 years. It gets you downtown (almost), to the Newark campus, to the west side of town. It’s not particularly well-maintained, though not bad (I’d bike but not skate). Mostly, though, it’s not scenic—it just gets you where you want to go. At the western end, it crosses a pretty metal bridge and connects directly to trails to Johnstown and to Granville. The hotel there makes a nice stop for food/drink.
The mosquitoes were horrible this evening. Never seen anything like it before!
The mosquitos are unbelievable, swarms and unpleasant. We saw several snakes and the bald eagles but you can’t get over the large amount of mosquitoes!!! Won’t be back
We rode entire length of this trail yesterday. As previously indicated, it’s not especially scenic since you follow a chain link fence the entire length that separates trail from railroad track. But the real problem with this trail is lack of parking and upkeep. It does not have parking at either end of trail. The best place we found to park (after riding trail) is Legacy Park in Hanover. Nice playground with ball fields. There was a restroom and water fountain - out of service due to COVID-19 but would be nice when open again. The trail was overgrown with weeds and low branches in many sections. Lots of busy road crossings but traffic generally slow due to railroad track directly next to trail. Would be nice trail with maintenance and amenities - hopefully will connect to other trails in area eventually so it goes somewhere and is useful.
