bike trail

parking & access


Welcome, Bicyclists & Trail Walkers!

Hope Lutheran Church is pleased to announce that the state of Ohio has completed the Ohio to Erie Trail entrance staircase with bike ramp, at the back of our property. 

We're hoping that adding safer access to this local trail will allow more people to enjoy some fun outdoor exercise, fresh air, beautiful scenery, and making good memories with your friends and family on one of Ohio's prettiest bike and walking trails. 

No more need to walk from Hope's parking lot to the trail entrance on Meredith State Road!

Please feel free to park in our gravel parking lot at any time, and walk through the grassy area to the staircase to get on the trail. Lord willing, in spring of 2023 there will be a gravel path connecting the parking lot and staircase, to make access to the Meredith State Road Trail even easier.

Currently, we are not able to offer any restroom facilities use for trail users, so please prepare accordingly. If that situation changes, we will be sure to let you know!
