Across from Miller Park, beside the Galena Cemetery, the old Penn Central Railroad bed has been converted into the 1/2 mile Galena Brick Trail. This multi-purpose paved portion of the Ohio to Erie Trail starts at Dustin Rd. and traverses an old railroad bridge over the Little Walnut Creek featuring scenic views. The trail features an overlook deck offering a peaceful picnic location. The trail goes to Walnut St. and across the road through Miller Park ending at Holmes St. You can continue walking north on a grass trail but this section is not recommended for bicycles or strollers.
