Dry, Mostly Dry, Some Mud - Pretty much great condition. Some construction vehicles blocking parts of the north section, but easy to pass. Minor mud under bridges. History

Getting forecast...

A terrific creekside multi-use path with easy access to a number of parks along the way.

The Alum Creek Trail heads along one of the city's most scenic river corridors, from Alum Creek Park in Westerville to Three Creeks Park between South Columbus and Zimmer.

This greenway has been split into three sections. The Alum Creek Greenway Trail - North Section, which stretches from Alum Creek Park in Westerville to Easton Way. The Alum Creek Greenway Trail - Central Section, which continues south from Easton Way to the Ohio Dominican University area. And the Alum Creek Greenway Trail - South Section that starts at Airport Drive and culminates at Three Creeks Park.

This is a paved multi-use path and not a mountain bike specific trail. Please remove from MTBProject. May 21, 2017

Hi Ed, Thanks for reaching out! You're correct that this isn't a dirt singletrack trail. That said, it seems like a highly-accessible route for folks who are thinking about getting into dirt riding or just want to bike away from car traffic. Hopefully, the description covers that distinction well enough, but feel free to use the "Improve This Page" link (above photos) to submit any other edits. May 23, 2017

I agree with Ed - this is in no way shape or form a mountain bike trail, singletrack or otherwise, and I really don't think it should be on MTBProject. It's a paved jogging/cycling/dog-walking/stroller path, and if anyone were to haul their mountain bike to this path, they would be severely disappointed (and possibly angry). May 24, 2018
