Much of Scioto trace was used as quarry, with some still in use. The land was reclaimed and made into some beautiful neighborhoods with home prices averaging well above the median for the Greater Columbus Area. The homes there range from 2 bedroom condos to nearly million dollar estates, and a little of everything in between. The homes in Scioto Trace were built in the 1980s and 90s, with some land being developed into neighborhoods even now. Schools for the Scioto Trace are in the very desirable Upper Arlington School District and they help to keep home values higher than the surrounding areas.
The neighborhood is a fun place to walk, bike and play. Scioto Trace developers made good use of the lakes left behind from the quarry, and the neighborhood follows along the Scioto River on its east side. The houses are well landscaped and have beautiful facades; the traffic is light and local.
