The County Line Trail is an easy path for bikers, runners, and walkers. Most of the trail is paved, only a short section in Sterling overlaps with the road. There are parking lots at the trailheads in Creston and Rittman, as well as two lots in Sterling, which is about the middle of the trail. I usually start in Sterling and alternate between going towards Creston or Rittman.

Cool tunnel thats about it.

Excellent ride

Great trail that follows creek so there are lots of bridges. There is a lake with benches around it and some very interesting artwork on the polls of the overpasses.

Great for walking and biking. Clean gravel or paved trail. Was great with my dog and kids. Nice and scenic.

Rail to trails. Flat, blacktop, scenic and historical stops.

I been a many many trails in Ohio, born in Lorain Ohio,
lived in Iowa 7 years, nice long trails there, new jeresy for 5 years, bad state to bike or walk,
the younger kids have gang's that pester any body that crosses there trails, getting back to Ohio. I love my home state, and riding or walking hundreds of miles, there's no place like home,

Beautiful area and a fun place to hike and explore.

Nice and simple trail with cool scenery. If you are up from a rock scramble, there is a large hill with a moderate climb. Feeling adventurous? Park on the opposite side of the stream and figure out how to traverse the valleys and water to find your way to the tunnel.

Nice trail for a walk. Very well groomed and flat. Can take a connector path into Metzger park and extend the trail by another 1-1/2 miles.

It’s fun, check it out. A VERY easy trail for sure.

This is a bike trail that crosses several busy roads.

Great community paved trail connects Iron Horse Park to larger regional trail network. Trial has multiple streets crossing so be carful of vehicles.

Been bicycling this trail for years and watched it grow. It is a well maintained and scenic trail.

Nice trail, a little bumpy

There isn't actually much of a trail here. It follows a creek so the scenery isn't bad but there's just not really a trail to hike. You don't actually make this hike for the trail. The only reason you go here is for the Moonville Tunnel.

It says 18 miles but you don't have to go that far!! There are many different stops/ parking places along the path. It's in really good condition and paved. Excellent for running, especially if you enjoy running distance. When I don't run trails, this is my favorite place to go. About half the time I take my dog (on a leash). Typically I start in Howard and go towards Gambier and turn around. Also, it's usually not busy except I've found Saturdays are very popular.

Great trail to bike, run, or walk along. I have enjoyed the year round access from the flood wall in Chillicothe, OH to the fields between Frankfort, OH and Washington CH, OH. Parks are stretched along this trail making it great for a day long adventure that could included a packed lunch. Carry a hammock and setup for a nice nap along the trail.

Unless you're on a bike I wouldn't suggest taking this trail. I hiked it and dealt with bikes almost nonstop from both directions.

This was a nice ride. It is fairly level and passes through some quaint little vilages.

Another nice rail to trail. It is smooth enough for road biking but we had mountain bikes with us. I loved the little towns.

It was too early for all that but it was a nice ride. The history of these towpaths is fasinating.
