Simon Kenton Trail

wide open spaces

February, 2024 by luv_mlb25

This was a fairly decent trail, if you like straight paths and wide open spaces. I ran this trail in February 2024. I divided it up in to 7 days and started in Springfield. The first mile or so is road side and there is a specific lane to stay in. This turns to some wooded areas and over some busy roads while in town. The path from lagonda to Eagle City was probably the most scenic part of the trail, crossing over the Buck Creek trail. Once past Eagle City soccer fields the terrain seems to be newly paved but there are a lot of little dips that I was very aware of since I was on foot and not on a bike. Coming in to Urbana there were some wooded areas and I am sure in the early spring and summer there may be more to look at, but it wasn't very scenic in February. There was little to no signage other than the SKT mile markers noted sporadically along the trail. It seems like once you get past Railroad street in Urbana there isn't much to look at other than railroad tracks. This is also where the trail changes from asphalt to the chip and seal. I hadn't ran this kind of terrain but was pleasantly surprised how smooth it was. I was concerned about flipping bits of stone in to my shoes but that didn't happen. There is another segment of roads to run and again, there is no signage to direct you on the right path. I did see bike signs, which to most of you reading this will take as signage, however, I would like to see signs of the actual trail listed. The map listed here on trailink shows the red line to insinuate the trail, however, when looking at it more closely, there is more route around a park in Urbana that was missed. Again, after Railroad rd in Urbana the path is straight and there is no place to stop for rest or parking and that makes for a lengthy run/ride for anyone on the trail. There is always a safety concern in this regard too. Overall, the trail is decent, however, I wouldn't run it again...maybe the part from Lagonda to Eagle City...but that's it. This was trail #35 for me, and I would say it wouldn't make the top 10 for me.

Great start. This trail needs to be re-established from Canton down through Beach City and finally to Urichsville !

Richland B&O Trail

Very Nice Trail

February, 2024 by jackybob

I rode the entire trail on 02/04/2024. The temperature was in the low 30s to start and mid 40s at the end, sunny and little to no wind. I parked just off of I-70 near a dog park. The parking lot was in the open and lots of people were visiting the dog park so I felt comfortable about where I parked. From there I headed south to Butler and then up to the north end at Mansfield. As mentioned in other reviews, the trail is a mixture of open and tree lined and rural and less rural and I would really like to ride this trail again when the leaves are on the trees. In general the trail runs up hill from Butler and for the most part has a shallow grade. The only time that I really noticed the grade was after turning around at Mansfield. From there to around mile 15 or 16 (from Butler and the highest point on the trail) the grade was noticeably steeper. The trail is entirely paved and I found it to be fairly well maintained. As mentioned in other reviews there are stretches where roots have damaged the pavement...nothing severe but enough that I kept a firm grip on the handlebars when I encountered these stretches. For whatever reason, I found the northern part of the trail to be more inviting than the southern end. The northern end is also where I encountered the vast majority of other people using the trail. Sadly, I only passed by a couple dozen people during my ride and all but one were pedestrians. For a trail as nice as this one, I would have expected to see hundreds of people.

On the negative side, there are approximately two dozen road crossings. Most are small roads and appeared to be not frequently traveled. However, three or four were busier roads with vehicles traveling at highway speeds.

Overall, I definitely recommend this trail.

Baseline:
I am a male in my 60s and typically together with my wife (she was otherwise engaged that day) frequently ride rail trails. Our home trails are Buffalo Valley and Pine Creek and our favorite trail relatively close to us is the Northwest Lancaster.

Olentangy Trail

I enjoy the trail diversity of activities

February, 2024 by carey7nash

I like this trail. You can ride and park to OSU football games, Crew soccer games, Red, White and Boom, and any festival in the Columbus city. But there is also wildlife- hawks, Eagle sightings, deer, beaver, muskrats, owls, etc. You can find picnic benches as well to use all year. There is a frisbee golf course up in Worthington along with Antium lake. It has a bit going for it in my opinion but at times a bit crowded around Whetstone Park and OSU campus. I just chill around these areas and go very slow. This is also something I wish the serious speed bikers would do considering it is a multi-use trail.

Great Guernsey Trail

An Awesome Little Trail

February, 2024 by rgombeda_tl

The Great Guernsey Trail is a 7 mile (14 down and back) flat rail-to-trail. The pavement is in really good shape. A few years ago they resurfaced the first mile which did away with the washboarding and cracks. At the Corduroy Rd. trailhead there is paved parking and a portable toilet. There is also an overflow lot where you can park if the paved lot is full. During the summer months a little concession stand is open and they sell water, Gatorade, snacks and such. There is also a skate park, dog park and archery range. As you go down the trail you will come across a sign that points to Coal Ridge Park and Trails. DO NOT miss this beautiful spot. It is an old strip pit that is open for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, trail walking and is kept in really good condition. As you go down the trail there are numerous rest spots, benches, and restrooms. The scenery is great. You will see wetlands, woodlands, grasslands, and a plethora of wildlife.

Great trail for a quick run (8 mile out & back) in Marietta!

Dayton-Kettering Connector

awesome little trail in all seasons

January, 2024 by luv_mlb25

This 1.9 trail is a hidden treasure. I am a runner, so I submit my review based on the trail that is shown on this map. I do not do any of the road portions and am strictly reviewing the trail itself. Parking is an issue as the trail starts/ends in neighborhoods. One end of the trail is on UD Campus, so it's best to pick a place to park when school is not in session. I ran this in the summer and in the fall, both on days when school was out for break. When I tried to park there for a run during the month of January, there was no place to park, so I decided to park at the other end of the trail, which I think was Wiltshire Blvd. That parking was in a neighborhood which was ok, but still not the most convenient. The trail has a slight decline when you start at the UD side and there is a graffiti-ridden tunnel about a mile in. The woods are amazing in any season. There are a couple of busy roads to cross, depending on the time of the year, but It is definitely a trail that is scenic and highly recommended for a quick 4 mile run/walk/hike. Love this trail!

Iron Horse Trail (OH)

southern part

January, 2024 by luv_mlb25

I ran this entire trail back in September. The southern part measured out 3.48 miles. The first part of the southern train is in town, and the map shows a trail running through the woods, but it is not accurate. The first 1.6 miles is sidewalk and then a road run down Hempsead Station Drive. There is a small roundabout and the trail leads in to the woods. It then crosses over Rahn and Whipp and then there is no real place to park and goes in to a dead end. The part starting at the roundabout and ending at the dead end measures 1.88 miles. It is mostly flat and shaded. It's a good trail to just do a down and back and get a decent 5K in without much traffic. the only reason i gave it 4 stars is because I didn't much care for the northern part of the trail and the map is not accurate. Trail does not run through the woods on Hempstead Station Drive. It runs on the road.

Ohio to Erie Trail

We did a 8.45 mi round trip between Harvard Rd and Warren Rd overhead bridge. Being in a wheelchair we had no issues whatsoever with the surface of the trail.
