Ohio Canal Greenway Description

The Ohio Canal Greenway extends south from Hebron on an old Penn Central Railroad right-of-way. Farm fields border the trail on the west, while remnants of the historic Ohio and Erie Canal are to the east.

Birdwatchers and other fans of wildlife will want to stop in at the Hebron State Fish Hatchery just south of Interstate 70 along the trail's route. A wooden-truss covered bridge built in 1992 spans an irrigation ditch across Canal Road from the facility. Here a larger adjacent waterway begins, continuing south along the trail until its end at State Route 79.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Ohio Canal Greenway is available in Hebron at Canal Park on Canal Road. Farther south, parking can be found at the Hebron State Fish Hatchery on Canal Road under I-70.

Ohio Canal Greenway Reviews

This trail description was accurate. It's relatively flat and 90% is either grass or a mixture of grass and cinder. The covered bridge is a nice feature. I'm a canal buff, so I enjoyed riding next to the canal and stopping at the spillway. The trail is well maintained, yet very natural. Park at Canal Park.
