Mountain Biking Blackhand Gorge

**   Add a review
#76 of 116 mountain bike trails in Ohio

If you are looking for a simple relaxing ride through a beautiful and historical area then this is the place. Paved trail, which is shared by walkers extends for approx. 4.7 miles into Ohio's only bike trail in the state's Nature Preserve system. This trail is an out and back trail and is mile marked. Terrific scenery for photo's. Preserve sits on 965 acres and parallels the Licking River, a favorite of kayakers and canoers.
