The Olentangy Bike Path runs from downtown Columbus to just north of Interstate 270, but this review pertains only to the portion from Whetstone Park to the northern end of the trail. This is a delightful urban multi-use trail -- not only bikes, but roller...More

This is a great ride. It isn't difficult as there are no hills. It is a nice length. Where I go I get 40 miles down and back. People seem to be very polite and courteous to each other.

The area is lovely for a peaceful walk. Move out of the way for the bikes flying by as it is their path, as well.

The bike path seems to go on forever with lake views, gorgeous trees and bushes. You can walk, ride, or jog the lake or take advantage of the pathways. Go during the day...not at night! People there all the time, but when it gets dark...More

It runs from downtown to Worthington, maybe 8 miles north. At the present time (8/17) there is construction at the north end. Too bad, because there is a great Rusty Bucket restaurant at the trail end which we always stopped at for lunch. If you...More

Best to start from north end at Worthington Hills. Ample parking at trail head, east side of Olentangy River Road, which route 315 spills into. This bike path is continuous until after the Park of Roses when it used city streets for five minutes before...More

We picked up the Olentangy Bike Path near OSU and went for a few miles. It was summer so there are areas in the sun that gets pretty warm, but there are also lots of shaded parts. We packed a picnic lunch and ate by...More

If you live along the Olentangy trail and work anywhere from downtown to Worthington, you have a super easy way to still bike to work and avoid biking on high car traffic routes, like High Street. Not only is it a super easy trail to...More
