Contacting Trail Managers
Q: Can you help me get in touch with a trail manager?
Yes. See this page on how to reach trail overseers.
After you've reported a problem or gotten the info you need, don't stop there. Share your info with other trail users.
Map / Brochure Questions
Q: Can you send me a printed map (brochure) for ________ trail?
We're sorry, but we do not provide any printed materials at this time. To see if a printable map is available for the trail(s) you're interested in, find your trail on the Trail List. Click on the map links in the green shaded area to see if a printable map is available.
Also, check the other Trail List links to see if a trail homepage or trail manager's page (often the local park district) is available. They may offer a map they can send you.
Q: Where can I get a printed map of all the Ohio bike trails? Or Ohio bike route maps?
Periodically, the RTC publishes a book with maps and summaries of Ohio bike trails. Sometimes they include a state map, other times regional maps only.
Ohio bike route maps (road routes, not trails) used to be sold by COP. Contact them for more info.
