Paved rail trail in Harrison County, OH (5 miles) This paved rail-trail runs along Conotton Creek in Harrison County. The trail is of a typacle 1-track width but as much of it is on a throughway originally 2 tracks wide, there is a broad space on eaither side. This makes the trail exposed and hot in the summer. Take plenty of water because there are no facilities along the way. There is a public school near the eastern terminus so expecty to see planty of schoolchildren using the trail for nature field trips. There are plenty of benches and bird houses all along the length.

For a winter day, the trail was mostly tree debris free (didn’t realize that rhymed until I wrote it). I rode the trail on a recumbent trike so dodging sticks can be a last second challenge! Trike riders without a suspension should be aware that the Conotton Creek Trail is indeed fully paved however much of it has a cobblestone texture with very little smoooooth paving. I gave it a full five stars because this trail has: ample trailhead parking; strategically places port-a-pots; great nature (wetlands, ponds, wildlife, birds, even a blue heron rookery); well maintained covered bridges and well placed seating areas!! Trailhead signage even includes local businesses and address/phone numbers if you want to detour off the trail for some ice cream or lunch!
