Our Recommendations for the Best Bike Trails in Ohio
Whether you’re looking for a long, scenic trail or a short, fast ride, we guarantee you can find exactly what you’re looking for near Bucyrus, Ohio. Here are our favorite trails, in no particular order!
1. Alum Creek Greenway Trail
About an hour away from our Inn, a beautiful, well-maintained bike trail runs along Alum Creek. The Alum Creek Greenway Trail is a favorite among the locals. At just over twenty-five miles from start to finish, the trail is paved the whole way. As you ride along, you’ll cross multiple bridges and even ride alongside the creek. Enjoy gorgeous trees providing shade overhead as well as lush grass on the sides of the trail. This trail is perfect for a bike ride with a friend!
2. Marion Tallgrass Trail
Looking for something a little closer to your home away from home at HideAway Country Inn? The Marion Tallgrass Trail is just twenty minutes away and is a great ride along an old railroad! The trail is paved for just over twelve miles, so it’s the perfect distance for a fun bike ride into the woods. See some of the historic railway areas, including restored railway bridges! The trail has been very well-maintained.
3. Heritage Bike Trail
A little less than an hour away in Findlay, Ohio, you can find the Heritage Trail. At just over seventeen miles, you’ll cover almost all forms of trail surface – asphalt, gravel, dirt, wood chips and grass. It’s not recommended for kids or beginner bike riders, as it often weaves alongside roads with a smaller shoulder. This trail is a great ride if you’re willing to explore a little off the beaten path!

After a long day on the trail, nothing beats returning to our luxurious Inn for complete relaxation!
