A leisurely stroll and you feel like you are in the deep woods in places! Along comes an Amish buggy or a person with inline skates, or bikers along with hikers. Come on a festival time and you'll enjoy getting geared up to do a 3K or a 5K running race! It's lovely to walk this trail and if you... More

This Rails to Trails bike path is a very nice route with nice blacktop surface shared with horse and buggy traffic in Holmes County. There is a nice canopy of trees covering the path and nice stops along the way if desired. We rode the section from Millersburg to Fredricksburg and will be sure to return.

Paved hiking or biking trail under trees and share the path with horses and buggies-can't get more relaxing than this! We walked this time, but want to go back soon and take our bikes and explore a longer stretch. Quiet, peaceful walk and a great way to experience Ohio Amish country.

The HC trail is a great place for a quiet run, walk, or bike ride (or horse ride, if you're so inclined). Just a couple blocks off downtown Millersburg, the depot also has a small playground and pavilion area. Heading north from the depot is the most scenic route, in my opinion. There are a couple cut offs in Millersburg... More

The trail is two car lanes wide and is shared with Amish buggies. it has very gradual grade which you would expect from a rails to trails trail. Watch out for horse droppings and some spots with grooves they create on the trail. It has very limited places to get on and off of it so it can be hard... More

They allow Amish buggies and other horsemen on the trail, but they use their own pavement beside the main trail. Water and picnic facilities are available. Lovely mix of trees and colors in the fall.

When you are in Ohio's Amish Country, be sure to visit Historic Downtown Millersburg, and when you do, check out the Holmes County Trail. A beautiful scenic trail, built on a former railroad bed, you can travel north to Holmesville and Fredericksburg, and south to Killbuck. It's likely the only trail engineered specifically to accommodate horses, bikes and foot traffic,... More

Went to Holmes County to see the Amish Trail. The trail was very difficult to find. The main street was very very commercial and crowded even for a rainy day. I much prefer Lancaster, PA.

We didn't know that this trail existed until we read about it in a brochure from the Berlin Resort, where we were staying. We have started biking with our grandkids as they are getting older and it is nice to know that there are options close to home.
