Summary:
Try BLOWING green. Too much wind, but ah well. I'll give it 3 stars, and im drunk, with a weak bike from the 70s, so i guess if youre into the road scene, then it'll be about 5 stars.

Recommended Route:
BG to NB

Other recommended trails in the same area:
none

Summary:
when i lived in rudloph i was on the trail 3 times a day. it was great because there wasn't much to do there in rudloph and i was over weight and need to lose it. i think that they need to but more trails like this one around ohio.

Recommended Route:
i rollerblade from mermill rd to portage rd and back then from merrmill rd to bays rd and back 3 times a day.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
butler ohio. i think that it is 30 miles long

Reviewed by: Gus , from North Baltimore OH

Summary:
the trail... well, the path is paved all the way and is sometimes interrupted by roads. It is unfortunately a very boring ride with not much to look at but fields of farmland to either side. Northwest OH is very plain. No hills or anything to break up the boredom a bit... very windy too. But the trail is nice for training long distances on a road bike or if nothing else one could replace hard core mtb tires with some semi-slicks like I had to do... I give it two stars because if this path wasn't there then there would be no other trails around...

Recommended Route:
either way, from BG to NB or vice versa is fine. There are no side trails so there is no possible way to get lost or have a little fun...

Other recommended trails in the same area:
there are no other trails or bike paths anywhere around here besides the Slippery Elm. It is truly a very sad conundrum for bike lovers.

This is mtb review not a rails to trails guide. I give it one star because it will not let me post a zero.
