Darby Creek Trail

Beautiful trail but far too many “boulders “ and too much sun

July, 2020 by eshawger

Nice shaded trail for the first 1/2 mile or so through a beautiful forest at the south end of Battelle Darby Creek Trail. Then it was 95% sun to the north end and back. The crushed limestone trail wasn’t crushed so well at many points and one of those “pointy bits” likely gave me a flat front tire. Urgh. Fortunately it was a slow leak that I was able to pump back up a few times instead of walking back or breaking out the tube repair kit.

Paint Creek Recreation Trail

Current trail closing at paint Creek between Anderson and Frankfort

July, 2020 by info364

We love this trail! A nice mix of shady spots and sunny fields. The path is well paved. It’s pretty sparsely traveled except for the area near Chillicothe. Just today we were attempting to go between Anderson and Frankfort and found that the trail is closed for 1.5 miles, where the bridge begins over paint Creek.

Paint Creek Recreation Trail

2020 trail update

June, 2020 by chadley109_tl

Just rode this trail, June 26, 27. Got on the trail at mile 13, camped at lake hill, (5 stars) and rode toward Washington C.H. it’s in great shape and flat yes a few roots but nothing major. The bad news is the ice cream shop in Frankfort is closed. Very few people on the trail. It’s a great ride. Then the next day we rode toward Chillicothe, two trees over the trail should have been a sign. At 12 mile the trail is closed, you can get around that and continue on but in 1 1/2 miles the bridge is closed and you have to climb over or turn around. We saw lots of wildlife and birds.

Paint Creek Recreation Trail

bridge out

June, 2020 by tandemspeaks

We planned to ride from Shaw Wetland parking lot to Frankfort but at mile 20 the bridge was out so we returned to parking lot. There was no warning prior to coming upon large plywood board blocking path. There was no easy way around - it looked like downed tree had destroyed part of bridge. It was eerily quiet for Saturday summer afternoon, we saw no bikers or walkers or traffic on roads we crossed. The bridge being out probably contributed to lack of bike traffic. The path was in decent shape with some bumpiness from tree roots. It did need trimmed, there was several areas where weeds narrowed path and low branches caused us to duck or ride single file. Overall, it was a nice very quiet ride.

Paint Creek Recreation Trail

Trail closed

We started in Chillicothe. Just north of Mound 25 the trail was closed. Our plan was to go to Frankfurt and head back, about a 30 mile round trip. A bit disappointed...

Simon Kenton Trail

Nice Trail

June, 2020 by brianaalbert528

Rode from Bellfontaine to about 2 miles West Liberty. Only encountered about 5 other people/groups of people. Lovely views - rural setting with lots of farmland. Saw some cool birds, groundhogs, rabbits and a lil toad. My only complaint is that the trail would be so much better if it were paved. This part of the trail is made with crushed stones. I have a hybrid bike and rode on the trail pretty easily, but the noise is quite awful and some of the little rocks got in my eyes (I recommend wearing sunglasses even if not sunny). There is also little place to rest or stop - I rode 9.5 miles one way and there was only one bench. I will ride again for the views, but probably won't be a regular for me until/unless they pave the trail.

Roberts Pass Trail

One of My Favorites

June, 2020 by brianaalbert528

I love this trail. It's not the most scenic trail out there, but still beautiful; lots of densely covered areas and wildlife. It's mostly flat and straight. At the end of the trail is the city of London, a cute little town with some local shops that are worth checking out. This is probably the least crowded trail I've been on - I rarely see walkers and maybe about 5-10 cyclists every time I have ridden the trail to London and back. Definitely recommend trying this one out.

Pickaway Trail

nice trail for a short ride

June, 2020 by info364

My son and I rode our bikes on this trail and found it to be a fun, short morning ride. Some of the trail has shade, some passes through cornfields and it’s sunny. Some is gravel, other portions are grassy and a bit bumpy, but still passable on bike. We took the trail just past 104 where it became too grassy and itchy for our legs. We talked to a worker at the canal park who said they were taking bids for paving the trail from the parking lot to 104. That will make it much nicer for biking.

Hellbranch Trail

Leisure ride

June, 2020 by linzphilipv_tl

The trail goes through a few residential areas. It might be hard at certain points as to where the trails is as there are no clear markings. The trail consists of 2 types of roads. Might not be able to go fast as there are a few stops & lot of curves.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Xenia to Jamestown a quiet, peaceful ride.

May, 2020 by tlockman11

Rode this trail over the weekend and were surprised at the low number of riders on the outbound. The trail's asphalt pavement is in good shape and there is more shade that we expected. There are a few places for drinks and snacks when you reach Jamestown. Would recommend this ~25 mile ride.

Lebanon Countryside YMCA Trail

good challenge

May, 2020 by hill.517

It is certainly a nice trail with a good mix of nature and industrial areas. However, this trail is tough and has constant uphill and downhill. If you want a good workout this is the trail for you.

Tecumseh Trail Multi-use Pathway

Great trail for running, biking, walking, skating!

April, 2020 by naelyn77

Such a nice trail going a good distance. It's behind my house and I see many people on it all the time. Great history information about the old railroad and Abraham Lincoln in Gettysburg. Love seeing it used for is intended purposes.
