North Bend Rail Trail

Fieldhouse94

September, 2020 by jif6997

Been riding the Parkersburg end of the North Bend trail, just wanted to update fellow riders of utility work on the trail. Trail was great until about the mile 6 marker then it was a mess and we had to walk our bikes around the equipment and get on the hardtop road and we finally turned around and rode back until we found the trail on the other side of the construction area.

Great Guernsey Trail

Awesome Trail

August, 2020 by milgler

We live in Dover (about 40 minutes from Cambridge), but my husband works in Cambridge, so he uses this trail often; sometimes at lunch or after work to both ride and walk. He suggested it to my friend and me as we have been doing one "girls bike trail day" weekly. She liked it so well that she took her husband to ride the trail a couple of days later. It is such a nice area and trail is in good shape.... a couple of rough areas, but they have patched them which makes it smoother. Really enjoyed this trail and it will definitely be on our "girls bike trail day" again.

Moonville Rail Trail

Spotty completed trails- bridge missing- but still beautiful

August, 2020 by betsy.baringer

We hiked to the Moonville Tunnel using the road- found there was on-site parking. But the tunnel was great! Next time we will walk farther down the trail past the tunnel. Tried to jump on the actual trail at one point- but the bridge was out. Picked up the trail in another location- was grassy but recently cut. Pretty and easy to hike. Definitely not for road bikes. Trail came out at School House road. Looking forward to future improvements!

Athens-Belpre Rail Trail

parking hard to find- very overgrown

August, 2020 by betsy.baringer

We ended up not riding this trail, but had a nice drive along back roads along the river searching for parking. We stopped and walked part. Overgrown with grass. Would be more appropriate for a mountain bike.

North Bend Rail Trail

My husband and I started at the main pavilion at North Bend State Park and walked to mile marker 30 before turning back. Great exercise for my recent complete ACL reconstruction, nice and flat. Bonus was walking through Tunnels #12 & #13!

North Bend Rail Trail

Could be a great ride...

June, 2020 by jtkilcoin

I biked the North Bend Railtrail this past week. My summary:

Happy Valley to Petroleum: trail quite manageable, however some areas have gravel that is too large for a rail-trail, but not quite as large as comment below.

Cairo-Ellenboro: very nice, smooth

Westbound Wolf Summit- Ellenboro: first 16mi to Smithburg characterized by very soft surface with numerous large vehicle ruts in the trail—very little gravel-based portions. Would recommend for only the most hardy of bikers.

Smithburg- Pennsboro: smooth and in good condition

Pennsboro Tunnel (tunnel 8)– MM36: a total disaster—gravel the size of rail ballast. Whoever decided to cover the trail with ballast-sized gravel has never ridden a bike on such! Remainder to Ellenboro manageable.

Hockhocking Adena Bikeway

Hockhocking-Aden’s Trail

June, 2020 by egable7

Great Ride! Flat ride. Very enjoyable. Started in Nelsonville at Rocky Boot. Lots of wildlife on this June day. Cool under the canopy. Hot in the sun. Fellow bikers friendly. And courteous. Will definitely return!

Hockhocking Adena Bikeway

Wow

June, 2020 by rwest1

This trail was a real treat! We started at the east end trailhead and at first I wasn’t impressed. The commercial area only lasted for a few miles. Next up was Ohio U which was beautiful. This area wasn’t shaded so bring plenty of water. After passing the school, we entered a gorgeous section with a tree canopy. The birds were very active and vocal. Nelsonville was an interesting old town. We rode the gravel bikes, but could have easily ridden road bikes. The trail was in great shape.

Great Guernsey Trail

Perfect Weekday Ride

June, 2020 by rwest1

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.

Athens-Belpre Rail Trail

Ok trail

March, 2020 by rewhited

The trail is straight and a little boring but would be great for horse back riding. It’s roomy with a mix between grass and gravel. We only went on a small portion of it that ran along the highway so other portions of the trail could be more interesting.

Gallia County Hike & Bike Trail

The trail through the woods

January, 2020 by stalkerz00

From Haskins park towards Walmart could use a bench or something but otherwise a very nice trail. Small tributary nearby and several side trails into the woods by pple and animals. See a lot of birds and deer on the main path itself. A few walnut trees right along the trail. I see several people traveling on it every time I'm there.

North Bend Rail Trail

varied surfaces

October, 2019 by jtw312

EASTERN SECTION. Starting at the Wolf Summit terminus, I rode 10 miles (and 10 back) on a Saturday afternoon 10/19/19 on an old Schwinn LeTour w/ 27 x 1 1/4 tires. I knew it was not an appropriate bike for this trail but it's what I've got.
Yes, the trail is in awful shape, and the state should invest in its improvement. Even during an especially dry fall, I encountered mud and soft ground frequently. The surfaces really varied. The most common surface was grass, but there were sections of fine stone/hard trail (w/in Salem especially) and sections of single and double track. There were a few spots where gravel had been put over previously-muddy problem areas. But the gravel was too big and laid thick to bike through. In the 10 mile section I biked, there were a lot of paved roads that ran parallel to the trail in part. On the way back, I took those to switch it up.
I will bike here again because I live closeby, the tunnels are cool, and it's remote. I will absolutely not bike here in the spring (trail will be soft&wet and a mess then) or after a lot of rainfall.
