About Heart of Ohio Trail
The Heart of Ohio Trail extends from the Knox-Licking county line just south of Centerburg north to Mount Vernon. It offers nearly 16 miles of walking, skating and biking, while an adjacent trail between Thayer Road to Tucker Road (about 3 miles) will please equestrians. The Knox County Horse Park is nearby.
Dry Creek cascades beside portions of the trail, and you’ll enjoy wildflowers from spring through fall. Incidentally, Centerburg is the geographic center of Ohio, hence the town’s name and a befitting name for the trail: Heart of Ohio.
The vast majority of the trail is paved, with just a short section west of Centerburg awaiting asphalt. Trail development is made possible through Ohio Department of Transportation grants and local matches, in part from the Knox County Park District levy.
