The Ohio to Erie Trail began in 1991 as an outgrowth of the Ohio Bicycle Advisory Council.
The trail is divided into three separate sections:
- Northern leg: Cleveland to Clinton
- Heart of Ohio: Clinton to Mount Vernon
- Southern leg: Mount Vernon to Cincinnati
The trail passes through regional parks, nature preserves, and other rural woodland. The trail is planned to be 453 miles (729 km) in length. Of that amount, 262 miles (422 km) are complete and in daily use, 54 miles (87 km) are under construction or in engineering design, and the final 137 miles (220 km) are awaiting final planning.
