The Sylvania River Trail follows the Ottawa River as it flows through the heart of town. The trail is a pathway for residents to get closer to the river and enjoy nature's scenic beauty just steps from the bustle of everyday business. The trail starts on Main Street and heads east, with one spur reaching north to Monroe Street along the north branch of Ten Mile Creek. Like the waterways, the two branches of the trail merge and continue through the wooded riparian area of Harroun Community Park. The trail then emerges onto Harroun Street where a crosswalk takes users to the second part of the trail, which travels along the north edge of the Flower Hospital campus, ducks under US-23 and terminates on Monroe Street. This makes for a total out-and-back journey of 3 miles.
There are plans to continue the trail's expansion east.
Parking (including accessible parking) is available at the west end of the trail at Harroun Community Park, behind the brick office building located at 5470 Main St, Sylvania, OH.
You can also park at the Kroger grocery store at the intersection of Monroe & Harroun north of where the trail crosses Harroun Road, and then take the sidewalk down to the trail.
