Bridgeway Trail

new northern section

June, 2021 by davidmaggiehome

Total distance is 10 miles. New mile markers every 1/2 mile. It ends at Lake Erie. The new section is 4 miles and has a combination of wooded, parks, street and city. It is definitely not boring.

County Line Trail (OH)

We have rode this trail on our bikes from start to finish multiple times this year and love it! Great path with great scenery! Plenty of parking on either end.

Downtown Connector Trail

The Trail's New River Route Improves Rider Safety

May, 2021 by orangedoug

Recently, on my way to ride several Central Ohio trails, I stopped in Mount Vernon to check out this new addition to the city's Downtown Connector Trail. I've ridden through Mount Vernon on several occasions while riding across Ohio on the Ohio to Erie Trail (OTET) route. The Downtown Connector is an important addition to the OTET. The trail links the Kokosing Gap Trail to the Heart of Ohio Trail. A vast improvement over riding the city's streets to make the appropriate connection back in 2013. Since my last trans-Ohio ride in 2019, an additional arm to the Downtown Connector has been added -- the River Route. The advantage to using the River Route is it allows users of the trail to pass underneath the South Main Street Bridge over the Kokosing River without having to wait for a crossing signal on this very busy roadway. The one disadvantage of this trail option is that it is subject to closure when the river's water levels are high. I appreciate Mount
Vernon's continued desire to find ways to improve the trail experience for those using the trail.

While this short mile long trail has a lot of utility in connecting two key trails in the Ohio to Erie Trail route, I still cannot grade the trail higher than 3 stars due to its short length and in comparison to the sights seen along the two trails that it connects.

Owl Creek Trail (OH)

Could This Be a Link in a Much Larger Regional Trail?

May, 2021 by orangedoug

I took a pleasant little ride on the Owl Creek Trail (OH) in Fredericktown, Ohio yesterday. This rail trail has been constructed from the same rail line that is now part of the Richland B&O Trail further north in Richland County. Currently, there appears to be a 6.5 mile gap between the southern end of this trail and the northern end of the Heart of Ohio Trail in Ariel-Foundation Park in Mount Vernon, Ohio. It would be great to see this gap closed, although that might be problematic as there is an active silica sand mining & ready mix concrete operation of the Olen Corporation located along the undeveloped old rail bed at the southern end of Fredericktown. Connecting to Mount Vernon and the Ohio to Erie Trail route (both the Heart of Ohio and the Kokosing Gap Trails) in Mount Vernon would be advantageous for the local residents. In addition, this abandoned rail corridor travels north to Ankneytown and eventually Butler, Ohio 8 miles away. Trail development to Butler would connect with the 18.5 mile long Richland B&O Trail. Complete development of this old B&O rail line would create a regional trail from Mansfield all the way to Mount Vernon. However, at present, driving to Fredericktown to just ride this 1.5 mile long trail probably isn’t worth the gas. It is strictly just for local residents at this time.

Heartland Trail

Great Trail, can’t wait for it to be longer!

April, 2021 by djnastyneil

This is an awesome scenic ride (very flat), but very short. It is fantastic for scenic exercise (went back and forth a few times)

Meredith State Road Trail

new section of trail complete

April, 2021 by hegregg2004

A new section of this trail was created probably last summer/fall. We rode this today and the new section is probably 2-3 miles. it runs south of Meredith State Rd alongside US 36/Rt 3 crossing over 605 and stopping just about halfway between North Condit and Sunbury. Also, at the northern terminus it looked like some clearing was underway to connect it to the heart of ohio trail, but thats just a guess. Anyway, its real flat and mostly tree covered with a nice little ravine at one point. Good stuff

Great American Rail-Trail

best trail ever

March, 2021 by tpassarelli_tl

wonderful trip across America

Kokosing Gap Trail

Very Enjoyable

March, 2021 by robertpurtell

Rode the segment from Mt Vernon to Gambier, and back. It's early in the season, so the foliage isn't out yet, but you can see where this would be a beautiful ride.

Thomas W. Hopper Legacy Trail

Trails connected

March, 2021 by sjf0809

I rode this trail on March 9, 2021 after having parked at the Depot in Sunbury. The Sandel Legacy Trail started just NE of the depot, went behind the building and seamlessly connected to the Thomas W. Hopper Legacy Trail, also or previously called the Galena Brick Trail. Only because of the signs alongside the trail, did I know that I was on a different trail. Signs identify various trees are along the trail. There are also many extensions going into the subdivisions being built. It also went by the Galena Shale and Brick Factory. Once I got to the end of the trail where it met the road in Galena, I turned around, pedaled past the Depot and on some of the streets in Sunbury until I got on the Meredith State Road Trail. Then I turned around and went back to my car. The total distance on the three trails was 6 miles.

North Coast Inland Trail (Sandusky and Ottawa Counties)

Rails next to Trail

November, 2020 by pauerd

I had the chance to ride the whole NCIT from Genoa (newest part of trail) to Elyria. So many great restored train stops, bridges, and even railroad museum right on the trail. Active rail line next to trail for about 10 miles.
Most of trail is paved now but with some sections of loose gravel or even large ballast I would recommend at least a gravel or cross bike/tires.

Loudonville Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathway

Pleasant Trail

November, 2020 by sjf0809

I found this trail to be pleasant. The write up said it was 1.5 miles, but I continued following the asphalt trail and went 2.5 miles between the park in Loudonville and the entrance to Mohican State Park. Nice trail.

Mohican Valley Trail

OK

October, 2020 by wierstheparty

We started in Danville and headed up toward the “Bridge of Dreams”. It was pretty but nothing spectacular. We thought we would just go to the north end and back but once we got through the bridge (full of road apples) it started getting a little more interesting on the Holmes county trail so we continued another 5 miles before returning back. Glad we took a photo op at the bridge. Spent the rest of the day hiking Lyons Falls which was gorgeous.
