Nice paved trail. Plenty wide. Only downside is all the horse poop. Trail is shared with a lot of Amish buggies.

Beautiful trail for bike riding! Easy, smooth paved surface - most all of it was flat for good coasting.

For a year end ride in late December, the trail was well maintained and clear of everything but the frequent road apples. This trail is unique in that it has an extra lane to allow the local Amish community an alternative to State Route 83. On a recumbent trike, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the horse manure but it’s nothing more than a slight nuisance compared to the rewards the trail has to offer. On this trip, my daughter and I rode from Millersburg to Fredericksburg and back. It was a leisurely ride with plenty to see including long stretches through a swamp and along a creek. We passed several Amish buggies and stoped to talk with some riders on horseback.

I have run this many times for long runs. It's sorta flat and a nice running surface. There are numerous places to take a pit stop and to refuel. It's a great run .

Take Mosquito spray. Let me say it two times! TAKE MOSQUITO SPRAY! We went using the directions listed from the app and drove the hour trip to disappointment. I didn’t see one of the reviews that said mosquito spray and from the pictures it looked non swampy and a nice lil walk. It is indeed a beautiful path but I was swarmed by mosquitos. It is indeed a swampy area and the Killbuck creek runs parallel on what was our left side. We only went in a mile when a regular went by and I asked about the mosquitos. He told me they would be the length of the trail as it goes all the way. Oh well. Next time I will be sure to take spray even if it doesn’t look swampy!

We rode this trail from Millersburg to Fredericksburg and it was just beautiful! Paved, wide, and mostly shaded. We got caught in a pouring rainstorm and it added to the experience!! We found shelter at a little pizza/sub shop in Fredericksburg and the Italian sub was delicious! Next time we plan to start again in Millersburg and ride south. We heard the trail now goes past the southernmost point identified on your map! Can’t wait to explore.

First to Review

This is one of my favorite biking trails. The trail (your listing in Sugar creek) but can be accessed in Millersburg OH. It is almost flat but varries in landscape. You got through some little towns and the farm land.. One of the striking features is the the trail is paved and ver wide . So wid at points that an Amish buggy can pass you going the other way.
