I enjoy walking and running a long the river. I use it mostly by OSU and between Goodale and up to Henderson. Some restoration work is being done right now. It's going to look great when this section near OSU is done. Patrons are respectful...More

The Olentangy Bike Path is very popular with all type of runners, walkers, and bikers. Watch out for other people. There are some ruts in the pavement. The path is maintained by the Metro Parks and they do a great job!

Very well-maintained trail, great for individual bike riding, running, or fast walking - but VERY crowded during nice weather, so there is not usually room to walk, run, or ride next to another person - doing so can be hazardous to you and your companion...More

Well maintained bike path down the cener of the city. Pavement and parks along the way are well maintained, and generally pleasant to cycle or run on. Be aware, cyclists often fail to announce when passing. Please call out before you pass others, and give...More

This is a fantastic trail. I was visiting relatives recently who live nearby and entered near the northern end. The trail is paved, well-marked (with directional signs as well as spray-painted warnings about bumps from roots), and often shaded. Although it was Saturday of Memorial...More

I use this path for exercise and for transportation. There are many beautiful parklands along the path's length. It runs from Worthington through downtown and into the Brewery District. It also connects to the Scioto and I-670 paths. It's well maintained and highly utilized. If...More
