Area Trails

In 2005, a partnership between the Mohican/Malabar Bike Club and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources opened an eight mile section of trail through the Mohican State Park and State Forest to mountain bikers. This partnership opened up an area previously used mostly by snowmobilers in the winter to an entirely new user group.

Since then, the Mohican State Park Trail has expanded to 24 miles of trail constructed specifically for mountain bikers.
