Great Miami River Trail

Pavement Cracks

June, 2024 by mr.dave witt

Been riding this trail for decades and have noticed that sections between Franklin and Dayton have pavement cracks every 30-50 ft that are 2-4 inches in width. It looks like at in the past they were filled in with asphalt, now the asphalt has sunk down in. Yesterday was a jarring and unsettling ride, probably will start in downtown Dayton and ride north until they fix these cracks.

Blackhand Gorge Trail

Really liked the trail, it is a little rough in spots, but wasn’t crowded and was a fun off day ride.

Buckeye Scenic Trail

Nice little ride

This was a great trail. Parking was a little issue on the north end. Next time will park at Heath High School. Loved the peacefulness of the trail, only saw two other people on it today.

Conotton Creek Trail

One of the best trails

June, 2024 by khswy7bn2p

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a ride and the Conotton Trail was incredibly well maintained. We started at the Bowerston entrance and went the full length into Jewett, and back again. The trail was smooth, well maintained, with 5 quaint covered bridges, flower boxes along the way, plenty of resting spots if needed, lots of wildlife (bunnies, squirrels, chipmunks, deer, a large variety of birds). A pit stop at the ice cream shop in Scio for a cone was a sweet treat. If you watch the trees at the beginning of the trail, there are some miniature decorated bird houses in the trees. Great ride!

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

June, 2024 by charlesgagel

Left Xenia Station and headed to this trail (Ohio Trail #4). Directions to the trail not obvious from the station. Had to go about 1+ blocks on Washington St. to enter. Once on the trail, it was smooth, brand new asphalt. Nice canopy of trees and lots of farmland to view heading to Jamestown. As of today, could only ride to Stringtown Rd. as they are laying new pavement east of there. Will be a great ride once finished.

Brookside Reservation All Purpose Trail

Provides Access to Athletic Fields and the Cleveland Zoo

June, 2024 by orangedoug

Brookside Reservation is a Cleveland Metropark that contains a number of athletic fields and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. TrailLink.com lists the length of the Brookside Reservation All-Purpose Trail as 2.3 miles in length but I rode almost 9 miles that included out and backs on several spurs that connect to local Cleveland, Ohio neighborhoods of Brookside, Old Brooklyn, and Brooklyn Center. I was baffled by a previous review of this trail that stated "small elevation gains." There are several taxing climbs on this trail as the zoo and the park itself are located at the bottom of the narrow Big Creek Valley. When I rode this trail I parked at the baseball fields found at the Jim Thome All-Star Complex in the center of the park. This area of the park is in the Big Creek Valley. The surrounding neighborhoods are located atop of the valley walls so almost any direction you ride on this trail involves climbing. I rode west out of the Jim Thome Complex toward the park’s Ridge Road entrance. This part of the trail parallels the park’s main road, John Nagy Blvd. About halfway to the Ridge Road entrance the trail splits and you get the option to climb out of the valley and up to the residences of Cleveland’s Brookside neighborhood. This is the most manageable climb out of the valley the park has. The climbs along Wildlife Way near the zoo and the climb up to Denison Avenue from the historic Brookside Stadium site are more difficult. Kids definitely would be walking their bikes up these climbs.

Most of the trail in the valley is wide open with very little shade because of the athletic fields and parking lots located there. The prettiest part of the trail is along Park Drive; it is tree covered and includes an overlook loop that offers views of the baseball fields. Take advantage of the crossing over the Fulton Road Bridge which provides views of the Cleveland Zoo’s Tiger Passage and Wolf Lodge areas. The trail while it provides access to the zoo does not actually pass through the zoo.

Brighton Park All Purpose Trail

A Key Link Between the Cleveland Zoo and the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

June, 2024 by orangedoug

The Brighton Park All-Purpose Trail is the middle section of a route that provides a connection between the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo found in the Cleveland Metropark's Brookside Reservation. It is a short, .4 mile trail that runs through a 25 acre park that once was a construction and industrial dump site. The Western Reserve Land Conservancy acquired the property in 2015 and the site remediation was completed by 2017. In 2021 ecological restoration and park improvements, including a new all purpose trail and natural surface trails, was completed by the Cleveland Metroparks and conservation-minded community members. The western end of the trail connects to the Brookside Reservation All-Purpose Trail which is located at the Zoo’s entrance located across Pearl Road. On the eastern end, some on-street riding on low-trafficked residential streets is needed to reach Harmody Park. In Harmody Park, you can connect to the Treadway Creek Trail which drops into the Cuyahoga River Valley and an additional connection to the cross-state Ohio to Erie Trail (Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail section).

The Brighton Park All-Purpose Trail is in excellent condition owing to its recent construction. It is a very flat trail in contrast to the two trails located at either of its ends. The prairie grass-covered park itself stands atop of the valley wall of the Big Creek Valley. It includes an overlook that looks down upon Big Creek and also allows some views of the industrial mills located in the Cuyahoga River Valley. My one complaint with this trail is that the Cleveland Metroparks has not yet added signs for the on-street route required to connect to the Treadway Creek Trail in nearby Harmody Park.

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Long Rides

June, 2024 by drrsg8g8fg

I live close to Fallen Timbers and pick up both the north and south paths often and I have road the whole south trail a couple times. I ride both a full suspension and no suspension mountain bikes from the early 2000s. Either is adequate for the parts of the trail I’ve road on. I find the trail beautiful. I’d like to make it out to Montpelier but have only made it just past the detour between Delta and Wauseon. The posted detour has you going about 4-5 miles on county roads. This is very dangerous. I would not recommend as the traffic is very fast and if cars come from both directions you have to get off and the off often ends up in a ditch and not easy. I’ve found it better to just continue on the path and avoid the detour. But this places you along the railroad tracks and it’s very difficult to ride. They are active tracks also and trains will come by. Riding on the trail though the detour is possible but rough and the part that goes over the tracks and along them is not marked well. It took some exploring to figure it out. I can’t speak for the trail after wauseon to Montpelier as I haven’t made it that far but the parts I’ve road are a great path for all day riding. You will have to cross streets along the way so you will have starting stopping.

Treadway Creek Trail

A Nice Descent Into the Cuyahoga Valley

June, 2024 by orangedoug

The Treadway Creek Trail is the easternmost of a series of short trails that connect the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. You must ride about a quarter of a mile south on Jennings Road from the Towpath (at the corner of Jennings Rd & Harvard Ave.) to reach the trail's start on Crestline Ave. From there you will climb about 80 feet in elevation over the next half mile to the trail's end in Harmody Park. As mentioned by another TrailLink reviewer, at some point, "Kids will likely walk bikes up."

This is a nice little trail. It runs up a ravine to reach the top of the valley wall. The trail is shaded and lush with foliage. So much so, that you are completely unaware of the homes that surround the upper half of the trail until you actually reach Harmody Park. My biggest complaint is that the on-street connection needed to reach the Brighton Park All-Purpose Trail and the way to the Cleveland Metropark Zoo is not marked with signs. If I had not had the TrailLink app I would not have been able to figure out how to find my way to the zoo.

We really enjoyed the ride and scenery. It was fun seeing horse and buggy too.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Peaceful, scenic trail

June, 2024 by tinamargo

We rode this trail for the second time on a perfect day in May. In summer 2022 it really had been “the trail to nowhere” so we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the trail has been extended by about 3 miles, taking you under I-71 to the village of Octa, where we found a picnic shelter and portalets (note: no running water). It was the middle of a weekday and we encountered only 8 other cyclists in total on the route out from Xenia and back.
