Welcome to Ohio! My old stomping ground

You've got a good number of places to ride near you in central OH (I'm assuming Columbus)

Alum Creek has some OK trails and is north of you

The pics show the trails in the various areas and link to more info.

To the south you've got some super options.
Hocking Hills - Has a great cave that you can ride into
East Fork - 70 ought miles of trails - This was were I rode mostly

Paint Creek - Good scenery but recent vandalism has ruined the settlers village with log cabins and barns.

Caesars Creek - Lots of good horse trails on the west side of the lake
Hueston Woods - Another good place to ride but not a lot of mileage

I forgot to respond to the question about places to ride in Ohio. I lived in Columbus in my pre-horsie days, so I don't know specifics about trails that allow horses. However, there are a lot of rail-trails in Ohio, some of which allow horses. Do a search for Ohio "Rails-to-trails" online. There used to be a guide to them published every few years, you might see if there is a reasonably current one you can get. Even the ones that don't allow horses are worth looking into for running and bike rides. I miss that about Ohio so much! Thinking about it makes me homesick!

I was normal...then I got a horse.
