Hiking opportunities abound in the Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District. Nearly every park has hiking trails with surfaces ranging from grass to wood chips to stone and/or asphalt. Please check the individual areas under “Parks and Facilitis” for detailed information.
Biking is available along the Riverwalk, a 13.28 mile paved bikeway extending from Heritage Park in Shawnee Twp. through the City of Lima to the Ottawa Metro Park in Bath Twp. Following the Ottawa River Corridor, the Riverwalk connects Lima’s Collett St. Recreation Area, Hover Park, Faurot Park, and Schoonover Park, as well as the Lima Family YMCA and Lima Senior High School.
In Western Allen County, an improved trail for hiking and biking runs from Spencerville south to the Deep Cut Park along the historic Miami Erie Canal.
