The Tecumseh Trail Multi-use Pathway offers a pleasant route, partially on the former Pennsylvania Railroad's Columbus-to-Saint Louis freight mainline. The rail route was also once used for Lincoln's funeral train in 1865.
The trail provides a mixed biking experience with about half the trail dedicated trail and the other half share-the-road. The initial paved portion of the trail runs from downtown Gettysburg east nearly 2 miles to North Harrison-Bradford Road, which you can continue east on as an on-road bike route to Bradford and the border between Darke and Miami counties.
As of 2019, from downtown Gettysburg, you can now follow the trail all the way into Greenville, connecting with the Greenville Creek segment at the Bish Discovery Center on Ohio Street (bike station and water available). With that, Darke County Parks now provides a trail from Bradford, Miami County to Greenville in Darke County, nearly 15 miles. One day, the trail is hoped to continue west to Greenville and Union City. From Union City, the trail could cross the border to connect with Indiana's 62-mile Cardinal Greenway.
A dedicated dirt trail parking lot is located on the west side of North Bridge Street, at the north end of Gettysburg, easily accessed heading north from US 36.
