Newark Trail Description

Beginning at a connection with the T. J. Evans Trail, this 3-mile paved pathway heads through Newark's western neighborhoods along the scenic Raccoon Creek to Flory Park. For much of the route, the trail parallels the south side of State Route 16, though there is a wide median and fencing between the roadway and the path.

Approaching its eastern end, the trail offers access to the J. Gilbert Reese Bridge, a pedestrian crossing over SR 16. If you take that spur, you will follow a paved trail north to the Ohio State University at Newark campus. If you don't take the bridge and continue east, the Newark Trail ends just a stone's throw from the Licking County Family YMCA.

Parking and Trail Access

On the west end of the trail, parking is available off Cherry Valley Road, south of its intersection with Reddington Road. On the east end of the trail, parking is available at the Licking County Family YMCA (470 West Church St.).

Newark Trail Reviews

Good for commuting, not for views

I’ve ridden and walked this trail for 15 years. It gets you downtown (almost), to the Newark campus, to the west side of town. It’s not particularly well-maintained, though not bad (I’d bike but not skate). Mostly, though, it’s not scenic—it just gets you where you want to go. At the western end, it crosses a pretty metal bridge and connects directly to trails to Johnstown and to Granville. The hotel there makes a nice stop for food/drink.
