The Thorn Mountain Bike Trail is in Findley State Park. Located not in Findley Ohio, but just 2 miles south of Wellington, 50 minutes SW of Cleveland. (25381 OH-58, Wellington, OH)

The Thorn Trail as it stands is a 9-mile loop that weaves through a mature wooded area as you make your way around Findley Lake. Each section offering different challenges, from short technical climbs, fast winding flats, even tight twisty stuff that will keep your reflexes on top of their game and a coaster section is a favorite of many. This trail was designed so experts can get explosive workouts but also creates a "stepping stone" trail for beginners. Spend the weekend and enjoy the State Park camping available with some sites located next to sections of the Thorn Mountain Bike Trail.
