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.

Invest in Signs that Denote the Trail

All of the trails I have walked thus far has signs posted. This trail had none. My friend, my dog and I walked along a busy road that had dotted yellow lines that ended at a corner of shopping center in front of a pharmacy. We returned to Hanner Park to our car but not before we walked just up and down the street facing the park trying to find out where the trail is.

Link to covered bridge

You can follow a link of this trail now past the golf course to the covered bridge in Canal. The link is parallel to Thrush Rd., just east of Gender Rd.
