Celina Coldwater Bikeway

straight n shady

August, 2023 by lunanoiz

A very pleasant & relaxing ride in the shade. It’s not super long but if you supplement it by riding around Coldwater and also adding the very beautiful Westbank trail in Celina, it makes for a wonderful little ride. There’s a couple of benches along the path, but they’re all in spots where there’s no shade which I found really odd. Hey, let’s take a break right here in the beating hot sun. Dumb

West Bank Trail

beautiful little ride

August, 2023 by lunanoiz

Beautiful little ride that follows the western shoreline of grand lake. It’s short but if you tag on the Celina/Coldwater trail, which is really close by, it makes for a really sweet ride.

Warrior Trail

first review!

August, 2023 by lunanoiz

Short little straight stretch that is very nicely paved. Not much on the scenery unless you like cornfields. I supplemented the trail by riding around in the sleepy lil town of Ohio City. It’s very much a little town… Not a city. Ohio City. Them folks must’ve stayed up all night to think of that one.

Wabash & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

short n sweet but stinky

August, 2023 by lunanoiz

Nice enough little trail that’s very well-maintained. There’s a beautiful wooden walkway that crosses some lovely marshlands & fields. unfortunately, it sits right by a busy highway. Would’ve given this trail four stars but had to demote one star because it stinks. Literally. There was a lingering smell the whole time and once I got towards the end of the trail, I found the culprit. A giant sewage treatment plant. I had to turn around and ride back upwind of that nasty mofo and by the time I finally passed it I felt like I like I inhaled all of Fort Wayne‘s butt fumes. Most unpleasant. ¿

Rieke Park Trail

Great trail.

July, 2023 by vboyddevine

This trail is really nice. It's paved and very well-kept. The park in front of the trail is also a very nice park with pavilions and lots of sports activities and clean bathrooms. If you take the trail north of the park you can use sidewalks to connect to the DeKalb trail. If you take the trail south of the park you can end up in town and also go on an adjoining path to the reike park lodge and pond. It was a great trail that was very wide and pretty.

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Depends on section you are on

July, 2023 by trob4cy

I started on the north fork just east of Montpelier riding east and after awhile realized this trail was just not passable by bicycle (rough aggregate / overgrown / down trees). After West Unity I moved to neighboring highways (mainly roads G and F) until I got east of Wauseon. When rejoining east of Wauseon the quality of the trail was still very poor. But once I reached the Delta trailhead on Hwy 109 the trail transformed into a very nice quality paved trail all the way into Fallen Timbers. I was just passing through on longer ride so did not spend anytime on the south fork.

I would probably characterize some of the sections west of Wauseon as some of the poorest trail situations for bicycling I have ever seen. Then on the flip side the section east of Hwy 109 were great. Assuming this Jekyll and Hyde scenario is due to different groups maintaining the trail with Toledo Metroparks section to the east of north fork being very nice. Northwestern Ohio Rail to Trails Association maybe lacking resources to conduct proper maintenance in western portions of north fork (or maybe bicycling is not considered a primary use for the trail in the western portions of the north fork).

Pufferbelly Trail

Great trail with new extension on its way

March, 2023 by charleshire

Trail is great for shaded run on warm days and wind protected run on cold days. Trail is 5 miles long with an additional 1.5 mile Solomon Farm Loop attached. Parking spaces located near the YMCA put you in the middle of the 5 mile trail and where the 1.5 mile Loop connects, providing a great spot to re-hydrate at your vehicle as you run North, then South, then the Loop to train for Half-marathon.

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Not paved

October, 2022 by rdhemm63

We live just 20 miles from this path. And did it for the first time yesterday. We did New Breman to St Marys. Started out beautiful but a mile out of town we lost the path. Only to find out it is a grass path between the canal and a corn field. Would be beautiful quiet walking path. But for sure not for bikes. We cut around and did some back roads and tried again further north. But the whole way from NB to SM is grass. May need to check out further south.

Rivergreenway

favorite indiana trail system

August, 2022 by bradtollefson

We parked at East Winney park which allowed us to return to our car between doing branches of the trail. There are no bathrooms there, but there are plenty full service restrooms along the trail. We did the entire trail and adding in the side parks you can optionally do and a brief detour for lunch we ended up with 75 miles. I think if you stuck to the trails themselves you'd be looking at around 50-55 miles. Our favorite path was the one going east to New Haven as that path is the most secluded and follows the river which is visible for most of the way. What is particularly nice is that these are not straight boring rail trails through corn fields. There is a lot of variety and distractions along the way. There are a few short bits in town that are a bit trafficy but they're quickly forgotton as most of the ride is along the river and through parks.

Wabash & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Pleasant and Calming. Nice Short Trail

July, 2022 by bentriderken

This isn't one of the greatest scenic trails but it does have unique beauty if you look close enough. The best feature is the wetland the borders one side of some of the trail. While we didn't see much wildlife, meadow flowers were in bloom. There is a boardwalk overlook with many hibiscus in full bloom. We went in mid July. More people were riding on a Monday morning than we expected. The surface was great.

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Pleasantly surprising

July, 2022 by jmk355

Parked at Keener Park, which has a lot of parking, restrooms and water. Rode east until turn on southern leg, went to Fulton-Lucas Rd (CR1) where the pavement ended. Turned north on CR1 for 4.5 mi and only had 4 cars pass me on a Saturday late morning. Turned west when rejoined the northern leg and rode thru pavement end, before trying to go further about a mile over coarsely crushed stone surface and grass.

Turned back and proceeded past Keener Park and past south fork to Wabash Cannonball Connector trail which winds past mall and over freeway to Fallen Timbers monument area. Down the hill to the trails in the Side Cut Metropark along the muddy Maumee River. Then back up to Keener Park- about 52 miles.

Although my plans had been to ride further west until the trail became too bumpy even on my hybrid, adventuring over to Fallen Timbers and the park more than made up for my disappointment. There is a lot of history and scenic things to see that I might have otherwise missed had I hit my distance goal (50) sooner.

Not a destination trail yet as the unpaved surface needs improvement, but certainly a great day trip and one I would repeat in the future.
