Moving on to one of the best trail systems in Ohio that you could spend an entire day there lacing together a lot of mileage without running the same trails the same direction twice. We ended up doing 16 miles and our route consisted of the following: Parked at Hope Furnace parking lot on SR 278> Hope Furnace Trail > Habron Trail > Copperhead Trail > Wildcat Trail >Copperhead Trail > Bobcat Trail > Habron Trail > Hope Furnace Trail and back to the parking lot.
Afterwards, we headed into Athens to check out Cycle Path Bicycles. Great little bicycle shop and their website is very informative. That is where we did a little homework before hitting the trails that day. Great maps that have a hover feature that gives a good description of the trail. Then we went over to Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant that was just a couple buildings down to grab some post-ride food which was much needed. I am looking forward to checking these trails out again when they are dry. Next time working in some of the double track to add some mileage and hit the other trails that we did not touch on this go-round.
