Go West Young Man
Along the way, enjoy rolling hills and beautiful scenery. The Kokosing Gap
& Mohican Valley trails both offer a unique experience as you walk or ride your bike along the old railroad paths. Take the Kokosing Gap Trail out of Danville and go west towards Gambier to view an old Alco 0-6-0 Locomotive and C & O Caboose.

…Or Go East
Go east out of Danville along the Mochican Valley Trail and ride over Ohio’s largest covered bridge, “The Bridge of Dreams.” This 370-foot long bridge is also reportedly the 2nd longest covered bridge in the nation. Enjoy the view of the Mochican River as you ride over “The Bridge of Dreams.” You can follow this trail all the way to Millersburg, Ohio, possibly the heart of Amish Country.
