Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to bike the former Hocking Valley Railroad River Division (HV) near Gallipolis, Ohio. The Gallia County Hike and Bike Trail was completed from Logan to Gallipolis in October 1880 for the HV. The tracks were abandoned in 1992 and dismantled a year later.

The rail-to-trail ends near the US 35 freeway, but continues again from Kerr to Bidwell.

These are further north past Minerton and were taken during the winter, but show the excellent condition of the right-of-way and tunnels that would make for an ideal rail-to-trail.
