About The Scioto Greenway Trails

The first greenway trail was built in Columbus in 1976. This particular route travels along the downtown riverfront. A second connecting section runs along the west bank of the Scioto River, from Souder Avenue to Dodge Park. From North Bank Park to Bicentennial Park, the path is the spine of the Scioto Mile. At the south edge of downtown, the path winds through Scioto Audubon Park, including a trailhead at the Audubon Nature Center. At the north edge of downtown, the trail directly connects to the Olentangy Trail, and continues north 1.5 miles to its current terminus at Dublin Road.
