Buckeye Scenic Bike Trail – Proposed Extension at Lancer Road

GRANVILLE, OHIO (December 29, 2020) The Licking Park District (LPD) is seeking public input on a proposed extension to the Buckeye Scenic Trail. The extension would begin at the southern terminus of the existing Buckeye Scenic Trail at National Road (US 40) and run south to Christland Hills Rd. along Lancer Drive.

The LPD is applying to ODOT for TAP (Transportation Alternative Program) grant funds to construct this 1.2 mile extension. The 5.5 mile Buckeye Scenic Trail begins at Hopewell Dr in Heath and includes spurs that connect to the Heath Water Park, HNLCPA and various area schools, recreational facilities and neighborhoods.
