Pickaway Trail Description

The Pickaway Trail is a developing rail-trail that begins in Circleville, located less than an hour's drive south of Columbus. Currently, the trail spans 2.5 miles along the former Cincinnati-Muskingum Railroad line and is in a primitive condition, providing a tranquil experience with views of woodlands and central Ohio farm country.

Future plans call for it to stretch 12 miles west to New Holland.

Parking and Trail Access

Pickaway Trail Reviews

There is parking at Canal Park where a person could take the "Tow Path" Trail. It joins with the Pickaway Trail. The trail is very primitive at this point but once improvements are made, it will be a nice trail. About one mile of the trail is on a gravel road that travels through farm fields. There is also an old cemetery along the gravel road/trail. The cemetery is from the late 1700s to mid-1800s. There are some newer interments in the cemetery also. The trail continues onto a portion where there is a former railroad. There are remnants of old railroad ties along the trail also. It also joins up with another trail that travels along Calamus Swamp. The trail does have taller grass so dress accordingly Overall, inrate it as a three due to being able to see the potential of the trail. Once improvements are made, this trail could very easily move up in ratings.
