Nice shaded trail runs along water. Nice overlook spot. Plenty of benches. Track is a little bumpy and we need more bathroom stop facilities.
We rode this trail on a hot and humid day and enjoyed the shady tree canopy. The surface is currently crushed gravel not asphalt. We began at the surprisingly nice trailhead on the east end of Danville and continued over the covered bridge and through the short tunnel onto the southern section of the Holmes County Trail. At this point the trail was very nice asphalt and definitely a steady uphill!
Super nice trail. Dont miss it.
Nice trail with plenty of stops and some pumps and water also always getting improved in the heart of the Buckeye state!
Smooth trail through farms and woods with Nice break spots and mile markers!
Did the southern portion of the trail today. From the parking lot/trail head it was 4.5 miles to the north where the trail ends. Other reviewers we're correct, there is almost no shade after you complete the first little bit of the trail. Trail condition: The vast majority of the path was a crushed, compacted limestone that was in decent shape. There were a few spots however where the stone was 1 to 1-1/2 inch gravel. Road bikes, or bikes that like asphalt would not do well. If you go be sure to check out The Track; neat bit of history.
This is an easily-accessed trail that has a few hills, bridges, and spurs to various locations such as the local OSU campus. It is quiet, with the exception of a bit where it’s alongside highway 16. (There is a protective barrier separating the path and highway). It’s a great in-and-out ride for a quick outing.
Very short but heavily wooded with slight hills and turns….bicycle/hiking
Well I hit my goal of 60 miles taking 10 trips on the trail a few days before I hit the big 60. Took me 3hrs 40 min which for these old bones was good. It’s time to explore other trails.
Like many others when I had to start working from home a bike became my friend along with this trail. I started biking last June and stuck with it even layering up over the winter. This trail and I have seen all types of weather. It’s a welcome break after work to hit the trail. I have enjoyed racing the rabbits, dodging the deer and of course people walking their dogs. I’ve worked my way up to 6 consistent trips and am striving to hit 10 by my 60th birthday on 20 July this year!
Essentially this trail is designed to connect the town of Groveport, Ohio with both the 17.8 mile Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail and the 25.2 mile Alum Creek Greenway Trail which connect to each other a few miles west of where the Foor’s northern end connects to the Blacklick Creek Greenway. (In fact, if you look at Groveport in Google Maps you will find that the Foor Leisure Path is actually identified there as the Blacklick Creek Greenway.)
The Foor Leisure Path ends just short of Groveport at Corbett Rd./Ebright Rd. However, if you cross over Corbett/Ebright and follow Front Street, after a 1/4 mile you will come to Blacklick Street where you can enter Groveport Blacklick Park. The park was once the sight of a canal boat manufacturing and dry dock operation back in the Ohio Canal era of the 1830’s. Lock 22 of the Ohio & Erie Canal can still be found in the park today. Now, you will find the Groveport Recreation Center, the municipal pool, and athletic fields in the park. There are several trail loops here as well. I rode nearly 6 miles on this out-and-back ride on the 1.3 mile Foor Leisure Path. The extra milage on this trip came from riding into Groveport to see what awaited me in Blacklick Park.
On a recent trip to central Ohio, I took a trip to the city of Canal Winchester to give their city's trail system a ride. Like the trail network in Westerville, Ohio this trail system is designed as recreation and an alternative transportation (primarily cycling) option connecting residents with businesses, parks and city amenities.
I first started out riding almost 2 miles on an out-and-back trip on the northeast section of the trail system. This segment is not connected to the other parts of the city’s trail network. I wondered about the purpose of this trail section as the only connection to any residential neighborhood I saw was to an apartment complex. Otherwise there was a lot of open land around this part of the trail. The northeast section runs along Diley Road, passing an industrial park, the Diley Ridge Medical Center -- Canal Winchester's local hospital, and connects/ends at the local Meijer grocery store. Maybe that’s the purpose here — a way for workers to get more healthy lunches at break time. It looks as though the pathway was put in by the developer who built the industrial park and hasn’t been touched since.
The main part of the trail system in Canal Winchester is more connected and is in the main part of the city. And connects neighborhoods to the central business district, Winchester Industrial Park, the municipal pool, the local public high school. There were plenty of bikes at the pool, so many kids are utilizing the trail system to get to the pool. It appears that the trail system has good utility in connecting residents with many of the city's main points of interest but it would be more useful if it also connected to Walnut Creek Park in southern Canal Winchester and the Franklin County Metro Parks' Walnut Woods west of the city.
As far as the trail conditions go, the trail system is really just a widened sidewalk but with an asphalt surface rather than one made of concrete. The path is seven feet wide. It’s surface is in good to fair condition but it could use resurfacing in a few spots and seal coating at the very least. Traffic is very busy along Gender Road where the bike path is sort of a two-way extra lane in the commercial/retail district. This extra lane is not separated from the road. The Canal Winchester Trail System appears to be a useful trail to local residents, but in my opinion it could use a makeover.
