Nice local rail trail with adequate parking in Hilliard with restaurants, a coffee shop and a bike shop within walking distance of the trail end. For road bikers this is a nice way into the country roads to avoid the more congested roads of western...More

I live by the trail and like riding my bike to the end of the 6 mile trail or into old Hilliard. Flat with not much to see going towards Plain City. You do pass Homestead park and the dog park. Good place to get...More

This is a tiny metro park with just one trail. However their dog park is nice though there's an issue with dog owners not leasing their dogs and not cleaning up after them. Pets welcome. Doggy bags are located throughout the park...so use them please!

It's too bad this isn't longer than 6 miles. It is a very flat path that quickly takes you out to the country. A lot of wildlife along the path too. I've seen a mother fox with her kits along the path.

If you're looking for places to bike or jog with variety, this isn't the place. But it's a well-maintained flat, straight, paved trail that's great for getting in training mileage or just taking a stroll, with or without dog. I wish they would build tunnels...More

I often run on the Heritage Rail Trail. Bicycling with young children is okay but if you're a serious cyclists, stay away. The path can get crowded with walkers, young children and roller bladers. Cycling too fast will put everyone's safety in jeopardy.

First, I should say that I am a Hilliard native. I have been walking this trail since they made it a trail ( I remember it when it was still a active railroad track). It used to be a peaceful place to walk the dogs,...More
