Experience Our Beautiful Appalachian Trails

Welcome to the Baileys Trail System! Located in the Appalachian foothills of Southeast Ohio, the Baileys will offer 88 miles of trails for every level of rider. Phase 3 construction wrapped up in Fall 2021 with 31 total miles now on the ground. The Baileys is built for all skill levels of cyclists, hikers, runners, adaptive athletes, hunters, and nature enthusiasts. Two trailheads are currently open--the Chauncey-Dover Park Trailhead and the Doanville-York Trailhead--with a third trailhead to be constructed in Buchtel.

The Baileys Trail System is now closed to mountain biking and will reopen to these activities sometime in the early spring of 2023. Mountain bike trails can still be accessed by foot travel (e.g., walking, trail running, etc.) throughout the winter closure period.
