Tri-County Triangle Bike Trail

The Adena Recreational Trail will eventually link Chillicothe to Frankfort to Washington to Xenia and the Ohio to Erie cross state trail. Current expansion includes a two mile link to the new Adena School Complex and railing and decking of five bridges between Frankfort and the Ross/Fayette County line. The Earl H. Barnhart Buzzards' Roost Nature Preserve is a gift of 373 acres containing much of the geologically beautiful Alum Cliffs and secondary growth forest.

The Park District and Advisory Committee are already utilizing this diverse area for environmental education purposes. Future development and programming have many residents and naturalists excited. Ross County has the most miles of rivers and streams of any county in Ohio. Scioto River, Paint Creek and North Fork Creek areas are publicly owned to provide primitive boat launching opportunities for sportsmen. Hopefully a network of sites will be available in the future to improve water resource access. Grants including ODOT Transportation Enhancement Funds, ODNR Recreational Trail Fund and ODNR NatureWorks have provided the majority share of the construction costs to date.
