Great ride on a beautiful day.

Kokosing Gap Trail

Simply Beautiful

September, 2022 by pr4xwnn2kn

New to all this bike trail stuff, but if this isn’t the nicest trail in Ohio then we’re in for a special treat. My wife and I went from Mt. Vernon to Danville, holy cow it was just breathtaking. I’ve read several reviews for this trail, one person said people weren’t friendly, wrong, we talked with three couples and everyone was very friendly. One other person said her son lost his phone… how’s that the trails fault? Tell your kid to not loose their phone.

Moonville Rail Trail

Beautiful and secluded…nice new bridges…didn’t see any ghosts ¿

September, 2022 by bikin-mike

Rode 3.7 one-way beautiful, secluded miles from Mineral to the Hope-Moonville Rd trailhead. The new bridges are wonderful. Really enjoyed the two completely different tunnels. Trail surface was great…just watch out for the road apples 😀

Bridges west of Moonville trailhead still not done. I didn’t even see any signs of construction so I think it might be many years until we see those.

Did not see a designated parking lot in Mineral. There is room across from the trail for about 3 cars. We parked there, but found out later that it is actually someone’s driveway….oops. I suspect you can park in the church lot north of the trail.

You can ride about 1/2 a mile east of Mineral on the driveway until it ends at a double locked gate with posted signs and flags. We saw one fellow ride around…hmmm. A few shallow mud puddles.

Like orangedoug said, better bring the bug spray. No problems while we were moving, but they loved to visit us when we stopped.

I’m thinking this might be one of the most secluded rides in Ohio. Loved it!!! Hoping they can extend it east and west someday….bikin-mike…Aug 2022

Hamilton Beltline Recreational Trail

Trail is now 1.15 miles in length with easy access at both ends and in the middle. Short length but pleasant ride.

Rocky River Reservation All Purpose Trail

Rocky River Trail - Beautiful

September, 2022 by grazieguy

I know this Trail better than any other in NE Ohio. It’s beautiful. Great hills, long slopes in cool dark woods. Some wildlife and scenic rivers. It’s crowded at times with some who aren’t aware of their surroundings. This can be a challenge. Otherwise, I believe this old school portion of the Emerald Necklace is still a gem.

County Line Trail (OH)

Nice easy paved trail with active train traffic. We had three trains go by on our ride. Part shade and part open farm land, beautiful scenery?

Blackhand Gorge Trail

Poorly maintained

September, 2022 by kilroy55_tl

Western half of trail not open, blocked by fencing/signage. Eastern half had several cracks/bumps. Not worth the trip.

Maple Highlands Trail

Great Trail-Interrupted

September, 2022 by grazieguy

This is a scenic trail. Started in Concord and went to south of Chardon. Great mix of straightaways and fun curves in the woods and alongside a highway. My only negative was crossing the streets to get through Chardon. People just didn’t seem to enjoy the idea of yielding. I literally said out loud “really” as people just kept blowing by. I would have gone further out but I kept thinking about having to cross those roads again. Based on that I wouldn’t ride this again. I prefer longer uninterrupted rides. But very scenic.

Blackhand Gorge Trail

Beautiful trail that is well maintained. The trail is closed around 3 miles. We think there may be erosion causing the trail to be unsafe. The view of the cliff and river are great.
