Gahanna Park Big Walnut Trail Sign

Mountain Bike Trailhead

We are partnering with the City, local businesses, and residents to develop a Mountain Bike trail at Academy Park! Specifically, our support will be focused on the trail head, which will allow riders of all ages and skill sets to congregate, prepare for their ride, rest and rehydrate, as well as house bike racks, a water fountain, and a bike repair station. Look for further updates soon!
