Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Love having this in my backyard

September, 2018 by kvhursh2017

As a Saint Mary’s resident living a few blocks from a trailhead (High Street) I love being able to just take,off on my bike, no transporting said bike to the park required. Parts of the trail are smooth sailing, parts are very rough... but it’s flat and beautiful. If you have any trail riding/mountain biking experience, this will be an easy ride for you headed North from St Mary’s. South is harder, longer prairie grass can slow you down or make you walk your bike. Always hoping for more trail improvements to make riding even better.

Lima Rotary Riverwalk

nice trail

September, 2018 by mkt45833

This trail is very nice. There are several starting points depending on how many hills you want to climb. The newest section of the trail which begins on North St and goes east of town is in excellent condition with interesting terrain. However if you want to ride this section the turn off is not well marked. Beginning on the north side of North St (near Lima Senior HS) you will need to ride on a shared sidewalk traveling east. This turns into the path about 1/3 mile just past the water plant. You can also choose to start from the east. Lots of fun.

Slippery Elm Trail

SET is a real gem

September, 2018 by pmcox9

Very nice ride through verdant NW Oh farmland. Immaculately maintained; not so much as a cigarette butt in view. Much of the trail is shaded, making for a comfortable ride even on a hot day. Only disappointment was a sadly underperforming water fountain in NBaltimore.

Chessie Circle Trail

Not as stated

August, 2018 by schweinhart

We went to Bowman Park and found a crushed stone trail. Went to first street and still crushed stone. Don’t know where if ever it becomes asphalt.

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Awaiting completion into Fulton County

August, 2018 by purejoyriding

We live between the trails at the eastern end near Jerome Road. Both forks are great for biking until they end as described in the data, and both become paths for hiking or horseback riding but cannot recommend for biking. That being said, there are consistent stories whenever you stop to talk with other bikers that the paving completion into Fulton county to make this a full 60+ biking trail are at least in the early planning stages. Hopefully this can be done in 2019 as that would make this a real jewel trail for this part of Ohio. The paved parts currently available are great and highly recommend a diversion off the north trail into Oak Openings Park whenever you visit and ride the trails.

Slippery Elm Trail

Enjoyable trip

July, 2018 by gatorcritter

I rode the Slippery Elm trail Sunday for the first time. It is an enjoyable trail with a fair amount of variety. I especially enjoyed the cool shade in the forested sections. The trailhead in North Baltimore is very nice with paved parking and clean restrooms. They have covered a lot of cracks in the pavement with a sealant that has made the surface a bit rough in places but otherwise it is in good condition.

Wabash Cannonball Trail

First visit

July, 2018 by bhrs

Wow! First time on the trail and parked in West Unity. Beautiful hiking path with canopy of trees for cover. What a jewel for NW Ohio.
I will be visiting and joining the Conservancy.

Sincerely,

Kiwanis Trail (MI)

Fine Trail for Walking or Biking

June, 2018 by kcornfield62

My wife and I discovered the Kiwanis Trail this year. We park at the trailhead at Green Hwy. and Ives Rd, and walk 3 or 4 miles round trip a few times a week. It is paved, has adequate shade, and is quite pretty with trees and wildflowers along the way. I have one suggestion and one question: The suggestion is to keep the weeds and growth cleared from each side of the trail: The trail is fairly narrow to begin with, and when you have runners and cyclists in each direction, the growth cuts the effective width of the trail by several inches. My question is: Why is it that the first half mile marker (when beginning at Ives and Green) is less than a half mile? All of the other markers are accurate at a half mile or mile, except the first marker is only about .4 miles. Overall though, an excellent trail for fitness and family walks.

St. Joseph River Greenway

Nice little trail

Well taken care of with multiple resting stops. Beautiful riverside views for all ages

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Gettin' It Done!

November, 2017 by mbduvendack

The Wabash Cannonball Trail in Fulton, Henry, and Williams Counties in Ohio is owned and maintained by our all volunteer group, the Northwest Ohio Rails to Trails Association, NORTA. We have regular work days on the trail, and try to keep up with maintenance on the sections we own.

In the summer of 2017, we were able to acquire "ground up pavement" for the trail surface in Williams county. A larger tire bike will have no problems on that section. If you like to "mountain" bike, the rest of the trail is rideable.

Sometime in 2018, the eastern most section of the trail in Fulton County will be paved to our offices at St. Rt. 109. We're working to find the safest way to get around the active train track in that area.

The Trail also has a section of certified North County Scenic Trail. Check it out. If you are hiking the NCT and need a place to camp or just need a Trail Angel, contact us.

We look forward to meeting you! And bring your loppers and rakes to help keep the trail cleared.

P.S. Yes, it's flat and straight. That's how the Wabash Cannonball Train was able to reach the speeds it did!

Slippery Elm Trail

well maintained, flat, wide, friendly trail

October, 2017 by aeboe

Everyone was so nice on this trail! That, to me, just enhances the experience even more! I am a novice rider and my husband an experienced rider. This was perfect for us! We were in town for a tournament at the university and brought our bikes. Easy, ample parking at the trail head past Wal-Mart.

Kiwanis Trail (MI)

Kiwanis Trail

September, 2017 by kirk 1

This is an excellent little trail to get back in shape on. It is the perfect length out and back 16 miles round trip. It's flat with nice parks to take breaks or cook a meal before you ride back to the north endpoint. Only a couple busy road intersections to deal with. All around excellent trail for a short ride.
