I did the Hockhocking bikepath this past Sunday, was a nice 36 mile round trip, the water was high and muddy and it was hot and humid. Started at Chauncy and went downriver to Athens, nice ride, shady most of the way till you get down around the college, the trail goes another 1.25 miles past the 0 mile marker, seen great blue herons and a snapping turtle as big as my monitor. Several others were using the trail from cyclist to walkers and moms pushing baby carriages. Got back to the starting point and then headed to Nelsonville, this is about 6 miles and along the way seen a 4 foot blacksnake crossing the trail, the trail runs along the river and if it isn't too muddy or high a dip may have been comfortable,at the end of the trail I got a flat and changed it at the daycare center. Also at the end is a train stop for Robbins Crossing which appears to be an old time town, log cabin type structures and people dressed to the era, There are places to get water but I always carry plenty, a few soda machines along the trail in Athens by the Habitat for Humanity Building also an American Legion that may be open for a beer or two, if you are a member, my problem would be that I would spend the rest of the day in there. Would be a nice ride in the fall when the leaves change. Have fun and a safe ride.
