This Clark County ride travels through a mix of farmland and suburbia. Part of the route travels along the Ohio to Erie bike path. On that path, which is edged with native prairie plantings, you will visit the South Charleston staging area, featuring an old train depot museum. To appreciate some of the features of the route, you need to travel 12,000 years back in time. The glaciers had receded, leaving low hills called moraines—places where the glacier had halted; those are the bumps and hillocks, which are deposits of gravel and sand. Old river valleys were filled by those deposits. Numerous springs now well up through that sand and gravel. The nearby city of Springfield is named for the springs seeping up from the meadows. The springs also account for the many bogs and fens in Clark and Champaign Counties.
