Across from Miller Park, beside the Galena Cemetery,
the old Penn Central Railroad bed has been converted into the 1/2
mile Galena Brick Trail. This multi-purpose paved portion of the
Ohio to Erie Trail starts at Dustin Rd. and traverses an old railroad
bridge over the Little Walnut Creek featuring scenic views. The
trail features an overlook deck offering a peaceful picnic location.
The trail goes to Walnut St. and across the road through Miller
Park ending at Holmes St. You can continue walking north on a grass
trail but this section is not recommended for bicycles or strollers.
Galena Brick Trail facilities are available free on a first come,
first served basis.
