The Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail runs interrupted for nearly 18 miles between Reynoldsburg and Groveport on the southeastern edge of Columbus. The trail parallels Blacklick Creek for the vast majority of its journey, with only brief diversions at Livingston Avenue, Tussing Road and Hines Road. Though the trail is primarily paved, there is a short dirt section through Portman Park, south of Refugee Road, that can get muddy.
The scenic trail courses through several small parks and three large regional parks: Blacklick Woods Metro Park in Reynoldsburg, Pickerington Ponds Metro Park in Canal Winchester and Three Creeks Metro Park in Groveport.
Just east of London-Groveport Road/State Route 317, the trail meets the Foor Leisure Path, which heads south nearly 1.5 miles to Groveport’s quaint residential core. At the Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail’s western end in Three Creeks Metro Park, the trail seamlessly merges into the Alum Creek Greenway Trail, allowing trail users to travel uninterrupted into Columbus and its northern suburbs.
Parking for the Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail is available at Blacklick Woods Metro Park (6975 E. Livingston Avenue in Reynoldsburg), Three Creeks Metro Park (3860 Bixby Road in Groveport) and the Glacier Knoll Picnic Area in Pickerington Ponds Metro Park (4071 Bowen Road in Canal Winchester).
