Westerville B&W Description

The Westerville B&W (Bike & Walk Route) is an extensive system of paved multi-use paths throughout the Columbus suburb, stretching from Hoover Reservoir on the east to as far west as Worthington Road. On-road bike lanes allow for cyclists to ride a variety of loops. Visit the City of Westerville’s official website for the system to view route maps.

Pick up the Genoa Trail at Maxtown Road and Northgate Way to reach Galena at the northern tip of the Hoover Reservoir. At Schrock Road south of Alum Creek South Park, you can also pick up the Alum Creek Trail to head south through Columbus to Three Creeks Metro Park and points beyond.

A substantial portion of the Westerville B&W, including its spine built on a former rail corridor, is also a vital component of the Ohio to Erie Trail. The planned 320-mile route, of which over 240 miles are complete and open for use, will eventually span Ohio from the shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland to the Ohio River in Cincinnati.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Westerville B&W is available throughout the system. Refer to the TrailLink map for exact locations.

Westerville B&W Reviews

Would be great if it were open and more clearly marked. This trail is closed for 3 months. Didn't know till I got there. Ended up on wrong trail that wasn't for bike riding. THAT'S when I found out the one I was looking for is closed.

Absolutely bueatiful. Came in from out of town and got to ride a trail that gave me tour of the town and parks all in one. It has everything ex. Water, swamp, town, woods. Easy to navigate and smooth paving. The curves made me excited to see what was around every corner.

I ride these trails every day and can find them to be exceptionally Last summer I logged about 1600 miles in the Westerville area


I have ridden many sections of this trail and have enjoyed them all. I grew up in Westerville and love the town. These trails are so enjoyable no matter where you park and ride. Smooth and clean paths every mile. I love the new bridge crossing County Line Road!

I just this morning found that this trail is now completed from Westerville to Mt. Vernon Oh. I used to live in Westerville and will now make an effort to ride this trail this spring some time . I once hoped a train and rode it to Mt. vernon from Westerville. As my daughter's family lives inWesterville we can make it a family affair. of course the railroad bridge that was over state route 37 in Sunbury has been removed. I am guessing there is a bike route to get around where it was .
