Great views. Not a very well marked trail! Trailhead not great. Keep your phone and gps handy!

Such a fun time! Although, it's definitely not a beginners trail.

My 9 year old son said it was fun doing it. The trail was short, exciting, & awesome.

#1. Make sure to wear pants.
#2. Make sure put on mosquito repellent, aka Deep Forest OFF.
#3. Make sure to reread number one and number two.

Follow those guidelines, and you won't get poison ivy, bit up, or scratched up by thorns and such.

Overall, it is a beautiful trail. If they could patrol it at all, it would surely help prevent all the litter, spray paint arsonists, and other illegal activities that young people do there. Out of all the Ohio Parks I've visited this year, this was by far the most littered park/wildlife area ever. So sad. It could be cleaned up and turned into a high tourist area.

Just hiked the short loop on Tuesday morning. While the trail is scenic and moderate to easy in difficulty, it's a pretty unremarkable hike. We hiked along a small stream for a short time at the beginning of the loop but otherwise the trail was very muddy with minimal rock features. It's a nice walk though limited to pine forests and some stands of hardwoods. Bring in your own water if you go. On a more positive note, there are multiple nice campsites along the trail if you'rebackpacking.

Very nice paved trail. Went weekday morning. Quite a few people walking. Felt safe. Nice length, meadows and trees along edge. Bathroom.

The trail was hilly and pretty. My only complaint is with the signage. It is lacking compared to other parks.

I walk this trail 4-5 times a week....very nice layout to keep a fast pace. may only see 2-4 other people on the trail at a time. very well maintained.

Great trails, pretty pond, amazing playgrounds, and very kid friendly. Took my 2.5 year old and she walked about a mile and we took a playground break then finished the walk. Easy trail and pretty scenery. I recommend and will return.

Great trail, but trails need to be marked better.

This is our favorite trail, some horse buggy traffic, gotta watch a little for road apples & a turtle could be in your path, mostly flat & straight, Wal-mart just off the path in MBG, All paved, scenic. Enjoy the ride, we always do

Beautiful paved trail with numerous bridge crossings. In our (wife & I) short journey of biking, it's one of the best.

We enjoy this trail with our bicycles, one little area with loose small limestone pebbles that you have to watch, otherwise enjoy.

Beautiful and serene!

nice ride along the old canal

The hike is not well maintained as the path is quite tiny. Also, it was covered in poison ivy. The rocks were cool to see on the hike, but didn’t get a great view of the lake.

The Alum Creek trail is by far one of may favorites for cycling in central Ohio. The trail actually extends South all the way through Three Creeks Metro Park. The section of the trail through the metro park is probably the best as is passes through sections of woods, grasslands, and tall pine trees. I've seen hawks, eagles, and osprey while cycling through Three Creeks.

A local favorite for a quick trip out. Always beautiful.

It’s so beautiful back in the trails, there are two, yellow and blue. The blue trail will take you right behind the tree line where the pond and trees meet. I go there multiple times a week!

Iron horse is a very nice well maintained trail. Lots of shade and still pleasant on a 90 degree day. We biked and had the trail all to ourselves.
We also biked the other trail to State street. Which traveles through a neighborhood and some Mount Union playing fields. That trail is only a couple of miles.
