The Trout Island Trail is planned to be a 13-mile rail-trail along the former Erie and Pittsburgh Railroad. Currently, 2.4 miles are open and fully paved in Sharpsville, following the Shenango River near the Pennsylvania-Ohio border. Eventually, the trail will run to Orangeville.
The trail offers a pleasant mix of views, including woodlands, farmlands, and the Shenango Dam. The first half mile of the trail, from downtown to the dam, is downhill; from there, the trail levels out and provides a smooth, easy ride.
A small paved parking area is available just off Thomason Road on the northeast end of the trail.
