Waggoner’s Run Mountain Bike Trail offers a unique location that is fun for riders of all skill levels. Let’s start with a little about Gibsonburg and the area around Waggoner’s Run. Gibsonburg is a small rural northern Ohio farm town located in Sandusky County but very well known by outdoor enthusiasts for “White Star Park,” which offers hiking trails, an inland quarry lake for SCUBA diving, and now mountain bike trails. Gibsonburg is around two hours from Columbus, Cleveland, and Detroit, so getting there is not part of the challenge! Gibsonburg is also known for “Ideal Bakery,” home to its amazing donuts, pastries, and cinnamon rolls. A visit to Gibsonburg for any reason must also include a stop here. So now that you know the area, let’s skip to the good part… Waggoner’s Run Mountain Bike Trail was a collaborative project between the Flatlanders Bicycle Club and the Sandusky County Park District in 2019 and is located within SCPD’s “White Star Park”. The Flatlanders completed the trail, dedicated it in October of 2020, and appropriately named it “Waggoner’s Run” after local cycling enthusiast and bicycle shop owner Dan Waggoner. The trail features 6 miles of twists and turns and exciting natural and man-made features, including the newest feature, a challenging teeter-totter placed right before one of the biggest drops on the trail. The trail is open for mountain bikes and hiking; it is recommended that hikers hike the trail in reverse and stay alert for oncoming bike traffic. The trail is a one-way mountain bike trail, beginning at the parking lot next to the railroad tracks on County Road 65. No horseback riding, pets, or motorized vehicles are permitted.
