When complete, this 22-mile trail will connect Westerville to
Obetz and run directly through our campus. This trail will allow thousands of
cyclists, runners and walkers to experience ODU’s campus in a new and fun way.

to ODU’s east campus, making it possible to easily walk from one side of campus
to the other. The project is expected to be completed next summer.
