The Scioto Greenway Trail is a 9.9 mile one-way trail that stretches through the heart of Columbus Ohio alongside the Scioto River and runs through Scioto Audubon Metro Park. It's a great trail for commuting downtown.

The trail continues across the Scioto River, on the western shore, for a few extra miles, but that section is not displayed in the GPS data here. To get to that section of the trail, you can cross the river at West Main St bridge or West Rich St bridge. That portion of the trail runs south and north. The northern terminus of the western shore connects back with this main trail at the intersection of route 33 and route 315.

Metro Parks manages the trail from SR 104 north to Bicentennial Park, Veteran’s Memorial west to Souder Avenue, and Confluence Park west through Marble Cliff to Fifth Avenue.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
