Group ride the end of June 2020. We biked the entire length as well as the connecting Niles Greenway trail for a 33 mile round trip. Well maintained trail and friendly riders.
I rode the Ohio-Erie route this morning starting from Lock 39 at Rockside Rd in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I had not ridden north of Harvard Rd and my wife and I are doing the OH2ERIE in a couple of weeks so I wanted to scout this section out to Edgewater park.
After the Harvard Rd TH the pike path runs adjacent to Harvard Rd and then turns north running along Jennings Rd to Steelyard Commons. There is one short gravel section as it crosses a company's driveway. It then goes behind the shops in Stellyard Commons. It was surprisingly pleasant with grass and trees planted. You still have RR tracks on one side and a chain link fence on the other but this is old school Cleveland Industrial area. There is a steel heritage museum along with some artifacts from the steel industry. The trail goes through two quick tunnels under Steelyard Commons and Quigley and the Towpath continues straight on the OTET turns right and goes up next to Quigley to W14th.
The Towpath continues on and its surprisingly nice - paved, with some great scenic overlooks. It deadends near Literary Rd. Its possible to go up University Rd (to be paved in the future but its rough right now) and rejoin the OTET at W14th and Abbey. If you go along Abbey Rd under the interstate you have a great shot of the Cleveland skyline with the Cleveland name sculpyure. Turn back around and pick of the Centennial Trail.
Once you leave Steelyard Commons I saw no OTET trail signs. There were other Cleveland Metroparks signs for their trails.
There was roundabout construction at W29th and Franklin so you detoured onto Clinton to parallel Franklin then I took W45th back to Franklin then W65th to Edgewater.
I had a great time. Never thought that the old part of Cleveland could be so enjoyable. If you are a fan of the Movie A Christmas story you can make a short detour and ride past it in the Tremont neighborhood.
The trail itself is still beautiful and well maintained, but the State of Ohio is doing a very extensive bridge-building project which has cut off access to the parking lot in Mount Vernon. I suggest you park at the Mount Vernon railroad station (Columbus Avenue) and get on the trail there. You have a push-button to cross the busy street, and Kokosing is about two miles away, a pleasant ride through the town park. (Or you can go the other way on Heart of Ohio Trail - HOOT).
My favorite trail so far. Clearly marked trail heads and parking. Beautiful views of the Kokosing River. Long enough for a great workout. Highly recommend it.
Biked this trail as an addition to the Niles Greenway trail. Seamless connection at the Trumbull and Mahoning County lines.
Great asphalt paved trail is just under 11 miles in length.
Construction still at Kirk Road. They are building a tunnel for the trail which will go under the Ohio turnpike. Follow short and well constructed trail detour.
I started at the southern-most part of the trail (48th St & Water St) and rode north. Despite the fact that the trail was paved, there were a lot of cracks and bumps in the pavement. After about 15 minutes I wished I brought my mountain bike rather than my road bike. Once I got through the downtown Wheeling area and north, the pavement smoothed out. I got as far north as Warwood and had to turn around because the weather was beginning to get bad. If you plan on riding this trail, be aware that it is rather bumpy for a road bike with no suspension.
Have road this trail several times since I moved to this area. Never get tired of it. There are a few places to hike if you want a break from bike riding. I always stop at the train and have snacks while watching people explore the train. Another thing I like about it is you can extend your ride on the Heart of Ohio trail. But you should know with construction going on the trailhead near Mount Vernon is closed. As is the connector trail. Seems like that construction has been going on forever.
It can be a little hot at the two ends of the trail as there is no close to the trail vegetation, however it is worth the sweat. There is an ice cream stand right off the trail about midway should you want to get a snack or something to keep you cool. The bridges, the lily ponds, the wildlife, the way this trail has been lovingly cared for by volunteers makes it a unique place to ride.
This well-maintained asphalt path made for a fun 44 miler on the gravel bikes. We rode it twice to get some extra miles. The covered bridges and tree canopy kept us in the shade most of the day.
This trail was full of birds and the smell of honeysuckle. The asphalt path was extremely well-maintained. We brought our gravel bikes, but could have easily ridden our road bikes.
Very nice trail to ride good scenery along the way have done parts working completely the thing from Massillon to Dalton
I live in the CVNP and do allot of riding by my home. Due to COVID the Tow Path and Bike and Hike have been so busy. Coming here was so refreshing! The trail is beautiful and shady! Definitely worth the drive. So sad that Lisbon is struggling so bad. I look forward to The Courthouse Inn & Restaurant to open again soon.
