Kokosing Gap Trail

The Kokosing Gap Trail is a paved, 14-mile recreational trail built on a former Pennsylvania Railroad line with endpoints in Mount Vernon and Danville, Ohio. Visitors will traverse the Kokosing River twice on railroad bridges more than 250 feet long with forests, wetlands, agriculture and villages along the way. A 1940 Alco 0-6-0 locomotive and a 1924 Chesapeake & Ohio caboose sit next to the trail in Gambier, and a wonderful park with play structure is adjacent to the trail in Howard. 

Water fountains and restrooms are available on the Trail in Mount Vernon, Gambier, and Howard. In Danville, facilities are in Memorial Park. Water is turned off and restrooms closed mid-November to mid-April. The Howard restroom is open all year. Park benches are located along the Trail about every 1/2 mile, and a public phone is available at the shelter in Gambier.

The Kokosing Gap Trail is part of the Knox County Park District. The trail is a segment of the Ohio to Erie Trail that crosses the state of Ohio from Cincinnati to Cleveland.
