Knox County has two officially designated Scenic Byways that will carry you through some of the prettiest country around. But don’t confine yourself to those roads, or you’ll miss much of what the county has to offer. Starting at Utica, the two official Byways carry you east and north into Amish Country and into Mohican Country. Ohio 62 from Utica to Brinkhaven is known as the Gateway to Amish Country. It will carry you through Martinsburg, Millwood and Danville, before coming to Brinkhaven on the verge of entering Holmes County. It is there you will find the Bridge of Dreams, the longest covered trail bridge in Ohio. U.S. 62 passes through scenic open farmland, with picturesque Amish farms intermixed with modern farming operations. Along the way as you approach the heart of Amish country in Holmes County, the traveler will find attractions, including Amish bakeries, furniture stores and fruit and vegetable stands. At Millwood, a stop at Honey Run Highlands Park is well worth the time. A unique waterfall and geological formations with an interesting plant population provide the setting for a pleasant walk along a creek flowing to the Kokosing River. The Honey Run Highlands portion of the park features areas that were once farmed and fields that are maintained as open prairie, providing homes to plants and wildlife common to that habitat. At Danville, you can take Ohio 514, which is also part of the Gateway to Amish Country. Take that until you get to the vicinity of Greer and look for Wally Road, which follows the Mohican River north to Loudonville. For many years, much of Wally Road in Knox County was gravel, but it was paved in 2017. Danville is also a convenient place to unpack your bicycles. The Kokosing Gap Trail winds south and west through Gambier and into Mount Vernon to meet the Heart of Ohio Trail, which will carry you on to Centerburg. Or, the Mohican Valley Trail will carry you across the bridge of dreams to Holmes County.
