Canal Winchester Trail System Description

This nearly 5-mile trail system weaves throughout historic Canal Winchester, Ohio, a southern suburb of Columbus. The extensive network links residents with parks, businesses and the city’s high school.

A portion of the route along Groveport Road runs on a former rail corridor, connecting the municipal pool complex with the bustling commercial district along Gender Road. Another highlight of the system is Bergstresser/Dietz Covered Bridge, which crosses Little Walnut Creek near Washington Street. The landmark is the only remaining covered bridge in Franklin County.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Canal Winchester Trail System can be found in Westchester Park on Dietz Drive and Hanners Park at 458 Groveport Road.
