Loudonville Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathway Description

The Loudonville Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathway is nestled in a scenic valley in a small town nicknamed the "Canoe Capital of Ohio." The trail begins in downtown Loudonville, crosses the Blackfork River at Riverside Park and continues along the river and the tree-lined State Route 3 to Mohican State Park. The southern portion of the trail consists of bike lanes on both sides of SR 3.

The beautiful forested Mohican State Park is a favorite spot for hikers, mountain bikers and campers. Popular attractions include the Clear Fork Gorge, waterfalls and a picturesque covered bridge. A trail spur will take you further south to the historic Wolf Creek/Pine Run Grist Mill.

Parking and Trail Access

Near the trail's northern end, parking is available in Riverside Park. At its southern end, look for parking in the Mohican State Park, just off SR 3, across the street from the park's campground entrance.

Great Loudonville Local City to Mohican State Park Trail

s

Keep in good shape & meanders through the local park, parallels SR 3 and ends at the Mohican State Park campground A. This is filled with mountain bike & hiking trails which are maintained nicely.

A Pleasant Local Utilitarian Trail

s

The Loudonville Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathway is a pleasant little utilitarian path. It runs between the Riverside Park in the town of Loudonville, Ohio and the entrance to the campground in Mohican State Park to the south. Most of this pathway runs parallel to State Route 3 and runs through the commercial district south of town. Much of the businesses in this commercial district focus on the camping and canoeing tourists that come to take advantage of the Mohican River and the nearby state park. From what I can see it provides access to local residents to reach the businesses along Route 3 which I'm sure employ quite a few people. It also provides the tourists staying at the numerous campgrounds along this stretch to a number of eateries in the area and the town in general. The pathway is is good shape except for a 100 foot section just north of Wally Road that has been dug up and not repaved at this point.

Currently this trail services only the local community, but I’ve read of plans to attempt to connect this trail with Mohican Valley Trail, which is part of the OTET (Ohio to Erie Trail) Route. This 16.5 mile proposed route is called the Wally Road Multimodal Corridor Concept Plan and would connect to the MVT in Brinkhaven, Ohio. I would not consider this trail one to travel to at present, but if the Wally Road Multimodal Corridor Plan is developed, then it and the Loudonville P&B Pathway would be a part of something worth seeking out.
