Findley State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Located off OH 58, 2 miles south of Wellington. There are over ten miles of trails to explore at Findley State Park, which essentially forms a loop around Findley Lake. The dirt single-track trails are wide because they were originally used as logging roads when the area was a state forest.

The section of the Buckeye Trail that runs through the park is narrower than the other trails and has more roots and rocks. It's also steeper, with a 35- to 45-degree downgrade. Most trails, though, will be easy enough for everyday cyclists. You'll even find a couple of stream crossings, and you'll ride along several ravines on the Hickory Grove Trail. The wooded area along this trail is the most natural; many of the other trails have more recent growth."

MTB trail in great shape. Easy to moderate difficulty. Well marked and maintained. Best on the west side I've found so far.

While this campsite was clean, well spaced, with multiple frizbee golf sites and activity sites, the trails were not well maintained and the easy route we chose this location for was 4.8 miles, not the 10 miles indicated. There are a number of moderately difficult and some difficult trails that would be challenging for more experienced rides. This was our first attempt to bike trails and hope for a better experience on our next endeavor.

Since this is a sensitive area and hikers get first priority, the winter is best; the cooler weather keeps down the number of hikers. Do what you can to avoid conflicts--don't wreck it for everybody.
