Canal Feeder Trail Description

The paved trail parallels the Miami River through dense woodlands as it makes its way to Vandemark Road in the Maple Leaf subdivision.

Parking is available at the north end of the trail in Graceland Cemetery (975 S. Main Avenue) and at the south end of the trail at 2700 S. Vandemark Road.

Canal Feeder Trail Reviews

Very pleasant, well maintained trail. Three miles paved. Perhaps it will grow.

Rode into Sidney Farmers Market

Easy, shaded trail that leads to a beautiful cemetery. We rode on to the Sidney Courthouse, on a Saturday, and enjoyed the Farmers Market. Nice ride!

Canal Feeder Trail

Very nice trail. Just the right amount of distance and a little challenging which was good since I am a bit out of shape.

A Pleasant Tree Lined Trail

I rode this trail as part of a plan to ride all Ohio trails listed at The northern-most trailhead is located at the back of Graceland Cemetery in Sydney, Ohio. When you enter the cemetery keep driving to the left and back of the cemetery to find the parking lot. I'm not sure how old this trail is but it is currently well maintained and well marked with distance and historical markers. At present this trail is best described as a local recreational trail. There is potential to expand this trail south to Lockington and on to Piqua, Ohio where it could connect to larger regional destination trail the Great Miami River Trail. I hope local and county leaders and trail partners see this as a goal!


Scouting Hike

We took our scouts on this trail to enable our Webelo's to complete some of their tasks to achieve their Walkabout requirements. The trail is moderately flat with some grades and but not too steep. Very scenic along the river and shaded for the most part. The trail is paved and wide so plenty of room for a large group to walk together. The trail is maintained well.

Nice, Easy and Shady

Great little trail. Mostly asphalt (about 1/4 mile is gravel) and no really steep grades at all. We are 51 & 59 years old and we had no problem what so ever! Not all that many people using it so was very quiet. About 90% of the trail is shade so great for a hot day! We will be going back for sure. A little difficult to find if your starting at the Cemetery end but the entrance to that end is way in back of the cemetery. A lot of signs to show you the way though. There is a parking lot back there. There is also a section on this right at the cemetery end that is a shared trail....there are actually houses with cars back there so you must be careful. All in all....awesome trail. Well done!!!
