Smooth, shaded, easy ride path. Good for kids.
This trail is well maintained and shaded. There are benches to rest at regular intervals. It is a good place to watch for birds. During the summer, there are mulberries you can pick for a quick snack.
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
Nice easy path. There was one tree down that was easy to get around. We did our route on horse back.
I tried to ride from New Bremen to St. Mary’s. I read some reviews, but it wasn’t clear. I also talked via phone to someone who lives in New Bremen and he encouraged me to take the path. Well, 1 mile north of town it was just tall thick grass. Had to do a detour on busy roads
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)
Very good trail and lake, great workout and beautiful scenery.
Only ride thru the park/lake area. If you leave the park it’s all sidewalks and main streets. The lake is beautiful to look at but that’s about it!!
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!
Really enjoyed the variety of scenery as well as different riding types along this trail, overall it was in pretty good condition! Will definitely ride this again!
