Tecumseh Trail Description

The paved Tecumseh Trail skirts the quaint city of New Carlisle. The trail takes users through some beautiful wooded areas along a former railroad corridor and connects to Smith Park. At the popular Wot-a-Dog Drive-In Restaurant along State Route 235, the trail turns south, following SR 235 to the recently refurbished New Carlisle Sports & Fitness Club.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Tecumseh Trail is available:

  • At the northern trailhead on W. Lake Avenue
  • Midway in Smith Park off W. Jefferson Street/SR 571
  • At the southern tip of the trail, just north of the New Carlisle Fitness Center on N. Dayton-Lakeview Road (SR 235)

Tecumseh Trail Reviews

The Tecumseh Trail is pleasant enough and connects the Northwest portion of New Carlisle, Ohio to Smith Park, a wetlands area along Honey Creek, the New Carlisle Cemetery, and the New Carlisle Sport and Fitness Center. It is roughly a 2.5 mile long path that could make for a relaxed after work, or early evening ride or run. The only complaint I have about this trail is about the crossing over S. Main Street (Route 235). Despite a system of user-activated flashing lights at the crossing almost no driver stopped to allow me to cross the road. Be cautious when trying to cross this road!

From my observations on Google maps this rail line originally connected New Carlisle to the cities of Troy and Springfield, Ohio. I do not know if any group is looking to make a connection to either one of these cities using this old rail corridor.
