Wellston Bike Path Description

The Wellston Bike Path is just under 2 miles, but when combined with the path around Lake Alma, you can make it a 5-mile round-trip. North of town, the path parallels State Route 349, making for a pleasant journey to and from the lake along a non-motorized route. At grade crossings include State Routes 93 and 349. The path occupies part of an old railroad corridor.

Parking and Trail Access

At the north end, park at Lake Alma State Park (422 Lake Alma Rd.). In Wellston, on-street parking is available.

Wellston Bike Path Reviews

The trail is in good shape, but even combined with the Lake Alma portion it is very short. That's why I can only give the trail itself 3 stars. But Lake Alma State Park is so pretty if you combine the bike trail with some walking and picnicking there, which is what I did on 10/17/14, it can add up to a very enjoyable 5 star trip.
