The Thorn Mountain Bike Trail at Findley State Park is a 9-mile loop with challenges for both novices and experts. It has mostly level terrain through heavily wooded areas with steep short climbs, fast winding sections, bank turns, and north-shore-style obstacles (novice riders can by-pass these areas).
The trail can be accessed from many locations throughout the park; the official start is at the north end of the park at the dam parking lot.
Beginning in June of 2016, the trail is now directional based on the day of the week. Signs are posted at the trail head, long/short split, road crossing by the chapel, access lane across from park office, and where the trail crosses the picnic shelter parking lot. Trail stewards are in the process of placing directional signs on the mile marker posts as well. Mileage signs will be updated to be readable from both directions.
Findley State Park is located at 25381 State Route 58 near Wellington, Ohio, in nearby Lorain County.
