Scioto Greenways

Multi-Use Trails in Downtown Columbus

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. Both are part of the state-spanning Ohio to Erie Trail, and connecting them to the city’s greater network of trails was a key component of the $36 million Scioto Greenways Project in 2015.

Combined Length: 12.2 miles
