What this area trail has is local people having a great time enjoying getting out after the long cold winter we had. I saw people hiking, biking and just having a good time in this very clean and serene trail. There aren't any heavy challenges here but lots of beautiful foilage and hiking through an area that is still close to town.

This is not a MB trail. Its a towpath trail comprised of crushed limestone and paved asphalt. Since your in OH, if you ride the dirt single track, the rangers will bust you. As a tow path trail its a five star. Since this rating is in the MB section I gave it one star.
