Holmes County Trail

Additional Trail Section Completed

October, 2017 by rstlzr

The Holmes County Trail from Glenmont southwest until it meets the Mohican Valley Trail is now fully paved and is a very nice section of the trail. This section does not presently appear on the map.

MetroParks Bikeway

Had a great time

October, 2017 by brodylittle

We really enjoyed this trail. Definitely a repeater. Our 7 year old enjoyed visiting the Metroparks Farm. Lovely trail!

Little Beaver Creek Greenway Trail

Update to my last review

October, 2017 by fish_boat


There is a porta-john at the start of the trail just before you get to Donna's Bike Shop. Then another just after the two mile mark and a parking lot. Then one at Franklin Square at 8.5 miles from Lisbon. Also has a parking lot. Then another one at the 10 mile mark with a parking lot. Also has a Gazebo if you want to rest and have a snack. Then if you continue thru Leetonia the trail goes another 2.5 miles. Once you get back on the trail past Leetonia about a mile or so there is another porta-john and a parking lot. They recently made a path from there to walk up to the coke ovens. At the end is another Gazebo and porta-john. On the way back if you are hungry you can stop at Dairy Queen just a short distance from the trail in Leetonia. Hope this helped anyone that rides this great trail. Any questions about the trail feel free to ask me.

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

My first long ride.

September, 2017 by wkarrant

I was able to complete the entire Ohio and Erie Towpath Trail over a two day period. First day rode from Cleveland to Mansfield, finished off the second day. A beautiful ride as the trail passes through woodlands, small towns and larger cities.

Mohican Valley Trail

Bridge of Stink

September, 2017 by charlie 48

Road the Mohigan and Koskosing trails yesterday. The Bridge of Dream is in a class of its own. WHAT A MESS 1 Does anyone ever sweep it out ? Temperatures in the 80's, bridge full of "road apples" We all nearly lost our lunch. Even the trail leading up to it was a mess. I've shared the Holmes County Trail with horse many times. Never this kind of mess. People. Talk to your neighbor county and get some tip on trail maintenance.

Stavich Bicycle Trail

nice ride

September, 2017 by bpatch

nice trail for the most part. Pennsylvania side well maintained; however Ohio side VERY rough, at least at first. very bumpy and actually difficult to ride through. once through that part rest of trail very nice.

Richland B&O Trail

My trip in video

September, 2017 by brian_switzer

I'm relatively new to biking so I was glad to see how easy it was to ride this trail. There certainly was a lot to see. So, I decided to make a video of my trip and posted it on my You Tube channel. Two thumbs up for the Richland B&O Trail. https://youtu.be/0LHhB_RBfS0

Wolf Creek Trail (OH)

Wolf Creek

September, 2017 by jwelhwel

This is about a 25 mile flat ride from Verona to Trotwood, OH. I like the location of this trail. If you are going to or from somewhere on US 70 it's easy to get off in Brookville do an easy 25 and continue on your way.

The name is a misnomer I've never seen a wolf or a creek on this ride! If you start in Verona just park on the street or at the grain elevator there is no formal trail head. Well kept trail, nice country scenery good restaurant, near nice motel in Brookville. You can leave your car there or in the lot across the street.

I plan to extend my next ride by taking some of the side country roads, little traffic, much to be explored.


Headwaters Trail

a nice trail with interesting history signs

September, 2017 by aparrott58

we are visitors from Montana looking for rail trails since we have very few in our area. this was a nice trail with minimal grades and abundant shade. the logging that was occurring adjacent to the trail was not a problem. there was unknown scat on the trail that could havebeen a bear... we did find it difficult to find the trailhead in Mantua and ended up parking behind Mcdonald's. the signage in town was too small and not obvious.

Towpath Trail

Update

September, 2017 by dolinn

Trail no longer has exposed tree roots as the oath has been covered with crushed stone.

Mohican Valley Trail

Mohican to Holmes County trail

September, 2017 by fhunker

Just rode from Mt Vernon to the eastern "end" of the Holmes County trail, round trip about 52 miles. Kokosing-Mohican-Holmes County trails are one of my favorite trial rides in Ohio. Lots of shade most of the way, and the Bridge of Dreams is very nice.

Garrett Wonders Bike Trail

Garrett Wonders Trail, Warren, OH

September, 2017 by mamon

This is a generally pleasant, though not spectacular, well-paved, flat ride through the city of Warren, Ohio. Contrary to the map shown here, as of today (9/15/2017) it is a continuous, unbroken bike route between the indicated end points. At least, this is what one would conclude from the green bicycle signs all along the route. The total length is about 4.5 mi. The northern portion of the trail goes through woods and meadows, then it goes into an urban area. Several portions of the ride are on city streets with little or no traffic. There are a few major street crossings. Some of the ride is past old factories, many of which appear to be unused or underused. This gives a sad feeling of economic decline. I just read in another review dated 10/2013 that some of the neighborhoods I rode through were unsafe. While it is true that I did not see any wealthy neighborhoods, I saw no reason to feel unsafe. But the incident the reviewer cites gives one pause. The Garret Wonders Trails connects with the Western Reserve Greenway at N River Rd NW, just east of its intersection with Sferra Ave. NW. The WRG is much nicer rural trail, equally well-paved and flat and much longer.
