Plan Your Day at the Marion Tallgrass Trail


Get Out in Nature

You’re coming to Central Ohio to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and reconnect with yourself. Make the most out of your stay and check out the Marion Tallgrass Trail, a wonderful 12-mile trail that gives you the chance to unwind, breathe in fresh air, and listen to the birds chirping all around you. The trail is only 20 minutes from our inn and traverses an old railroad through the forest.


Have a Nice Stroll

If you’re not quite ready to tackle an unpaved trail in the middle of the wilderness, then the Marion Tallgrass Trail is perfect for you. Enjoy a nice morning walk without having to fight off the bushes in your face! You can stroll along the pavement or go for a run. If you’re traveling with your significant other, make a lunch date out of it and pack a picnic. There’s nothing like lying in the grass on a blanket, a chilled bottle of water, and a delicious sandwich from The State of Sandwich in downtown Marion!


You Can Bike, Too!

Make your visit to the Marion Tallgrass Trail even more adventurous with a fun bike ride through the woods! You ride along some of the state’s most historic railway areas, including restored railway bridges. The trail is very well-maintained, so don’t worry about being an expert rider. It’s perfect for couples wishing to escape for the day and indulge in a sweet romantic date.
