Contacting Trail Managers

Q: Can you help me get in touch with a trail manager?

Yes. See this page on how to reach trail overseers.

After you've reported a problem or gotten the info you need, don't stop there. Share your info with other trail users.

Map / Brochure Questions

Q: Can you send me a printed map (brochure) for ________ trail?

We're sorry, but we do not provide any printed materials at this time. To see if a printable map is available for the trail(s) you're interested in, find your trail on the Trail List. Click on the map links in the green shaded area to see if a printable map is available.

Also, check the other Trail List links to see if a trail homepage or trail manager's page (often the local park district) is available. They may offer a map they can send you.

Q: Where can I get a printed map of all the Ohio bike trails? Or Ohio bike route maps?

Periodically, the RTC publishes a book with maps and summaries of Ohio bike trails. Sometimes they include a state map, other times regional maps only.

Ohio bike route maps (road routes, not trails) used to be sold by COP. Contact them for more info.

Planning a Cycling Trip / Route

Q: I am trying to find a route from ________ to ________ and would like to incorporate trails wherever possible. Can you help?

Yes. The new Ohio Trails Google map has a built-in route planner feature. Just follow the directions in the left-hand menu. Or visit the demo page to view the "how-to" videos.

Once you've plotted your route, visit the planning a trip page to fill in the details for your ride including: finding facilities along the trails, places to eat, etc.

Trail Group Help

Q: We are starting a trail group and are in need of resources such as grant opportunities and the like. Can you help?

Yes. Check out the links on our Resources page. A great place to start is the RTC Trail Builders Toolbox. (Select 'RTC Resources Page.')


Q: Why haven't you fixed the broken bench along the ________ trail?

Ohio Bikeways does not maintain or manage any trails. See the Contacting Trail Managers page.

Q: When will ________ trail bridge be open / repaired?

Check the news section for the latest Ohio trail news. If we have a review for the trail in question, check its updates & comments page for recent updates.

If no news or updates have come in to Ohio Bikeways, check with the trail manager.
