Vermilion: The charm of the New England style Historic Harbour Town 1837 district is complimented by waterfront attractions along the scenic Vermilion River and the shores of Lake Erie. Interesting shops and museums reflect the flavor of this lakefront town. Take a break, dine along the water and watch the river traffic go by. lake erie paddler

Kayak, Paddleboat, Canoe or SUP Rental

The tour will take you through several small towns and cities in North Central Ohio. Individually, each town is a delightful visit. Combined in a single tour, cyclists will experience a memorable and fulfilling environmental, cultural, historical and recreational tour. Hard-core athletes can jump on Thorn Mountain Bike Trail the trail and complete a multisport adventure that combines cycling with mountain biking, swimming, trekking, kayaking, roller blading or running through varied and scenic terrain. Cycling tourists can take a leisurely spin through the route while immersing themselves in the culture, arts and history of Oberlin, the nautical charm and maritime history of Vermilion, or the beautiful beaches and lake views in Lorain, Sheffield Lake and Avon Lake.

The Back Roads and Beaches Route is miles of rolling,

rural roads with beautiful scenery that ranges from farmland and forest to the nautical flavor of the Lake Erie shoreline. The route provides scenic and low-traffic routes that lead riders through some of Ohio’s most spectacular landscape. It also highlights some of the area’s most relevant history, culture and arts. Of course, every touring cyclist always looks for great food. You’ll find fast food along the route but Back Road and Beaches highlights those eateries that feature locally grown produce, organics, healthy choices and spectacular outdoor views of our natural areas. The route is perfect for a two- or three-day visit. You’ll find lodges, hotels, bed and breakfasts and camping along the way. Some are a bit off the trail but can be easily reached by bike. All lodging indicated on the map are cyclist-friendly.
