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.
