New Carlisle, Ohio 45344Tecumseh Trail (TrailLink) webpage
Smith Park, located at the mid-point of this trail, offers good parking. The trail (heading east and north) cuts through or alongside a variety of habitats, including shrubbery (good for warblers), new growth woods (where Swainson’s thrushes were observed), a wetland with a large number of snags (good for viewing woodpeckers) and a few wood duck nesting boxes, an agricultural field, and residential areas. The entrance to the trail at Smith Park can be a good place to look for warblers during migration.
The paved Tecumseh Trail skirts the quaint city of New Carlisle. The trail takes users through some beautiful wooded areas along a former railroad corridor and connects to Smith Park. At the popular Wot-a-Dog Drive-In Restaurant along OH-235, the trail turns south, following OH-235 to the recently refurbished New Carlisle Sports and Fitness Club.
