The Roundtown Trail opens today. The 1.48 mile long, 10 foot wide trail runs from the Pickaway County YMCA to the Ohio Christian University (OCU) Campus, allowing walking, biking, and rollerblading.

According to Former OCU President Dr. Mark Smith, “This trail opens up a new way for our students to access the town,” Smith also said “the trail will continue to strengthen relationships between OCU and Circleville City Schools. Most recently, the new OCU tennis and track programs have agreements to use the high school facilities.”

John Phillps, director of Circleville parks and recreation said, “The groundbreaking of the Roundtown Trail is just one small step in the dream to connect all of our local parks, towns and villages with walking, running and biking trails. It’s also one giant leap for enhancing the quality of life in our community.”
