Essentially to describe the Camp Chase Trail, you could draw a line between the Southern edge of Grandview Heights to the Madison County Courthouse in London (with Battelle Darby Creek MetroPark as the mid-point)

As we enter the development of the final segments of the Camp Chase Trail, It seemed like a good time to provide an update on current projects and have a transportation thread with the updates. When complete the trail will be 15 miles from the conjunction with Roberts Pass in Madison County to Holton Park on North Eureka Ave in Highland West.
