Coshocton Three Rivers Bikeway Description

The Coshocton Three Rivers Bikeway provides safe and direct access from the City of Coshocton to the Coshocton Lake Park Recreational Complex and historic Roscoe Village. Two crossings under US 36 eliminate the need to traverse several lanes of busy traffic.

In the north, the trail forms a loop around Middle Basin in the Lake Park Complex. From the park, a spur built on a short stretch of the former Ohio and Erie Canal towpath heads southwest to Roscoe Village, a restored 1830s canal town. The village features old-fashioned shops, restaurants, a museum and the launching point for horse-drawn canal boat rides on the Monticello III.

Another paved trail segment follows County Road 1A and Bridge Street from Coshocton Lake Park to the northwestern edge of downtown Coshocton.

Parking and Trail Access

Visitors to the area should park at the Coshocton Lake Park Recreational Complex to access the Coshocton Three Rivers Bikeway. From State Route 83, head north past downtown Coshocton. The route overlaps with US 36 for a short distance, so be sure to follow the signs for the left turn to stay on SR 83. The park entrance is to the left just north of there.

Restrooms and drinking fountains are available at the parking area.

Coshocton Three Rivers Bikeway Reviews

The trail surface is clean & smooth (roots under the incline near the SR83 tunnel, between the lake & canal boat, creating large surface humps). Volunteers keep the trail clean & beautifully landscaped. There's a slight change in surface levels (1-2 inches) on either end if the aquaduct bridge crossing the Walhonding River near the Lake Park Complex. The trail is relatively level, with 3 steep inclines. 2 located at the south end of the lake, & 1 at the northeast end. Benches are spaced along the trail, including a couple gazebos tucked in the trees. RESTROOMS are available in the Visitor Center in Roscoe Village and at Lake Park at the soccer fields, playground/picnic area, & campground. VENDING machines with beverages can be found at Lake Park in the playground/picnic area, the Monticello canal boat (along SR83). Roscoe Village has restaurants, groceries, ice cream, & alcohol. The Local Bounty store (north of US36 on SR83) is accessible from the far end of the soccer fields & features delicious foods made/grown locally. PARKING available at the Roscoe Village end of the trail, Lake Park, soccer fields, canal boat, & behind Local Bounty. BONUSES: Fishing, camping, waterslide park, Historical Roscoe Village (with tours), canal boat rides, softball & soccer fields, & plenty of space for picnics, outdoor games, & relaxing.
