Portage Hike and Bike Trail

Great secluded and low-traffic local trail

February, 2017 by gcoghill23

While this trail crosses a few low-traffic back roads here and there, overall it's a secluded and scenic ride. You'll pop in and out of nature and small town civilization, bit that's kind of par for the course on rail trails.

While nothing spectacular, you do get a few extras on this trail such as Towner's Woods park, where you can park and the short hikes are all worth it. The trail also gets you really close to the trail near downtown Kent (not sure of the name but it starts at Tannery Park). If you are willing to do a bit of street riding you can connect to that trail, and follow it out to the Freedom Trail near Middlebury Road. That will take you all the way out beyond Tallmadge.

And the nearby Franklin Connector section (not near rails) is a good ride and will connect you to the Summit Bike & Hike Trail. Most will want to drive to get to Franklin Connector, but it's reachable by bike for sure.

Now that the Portage has been fully paved, it really makes it a great casual ride. Very little in the way of elevation, and as mentioned very little cross-street traffic to worry about.

For what it is — a great local bike trail — it's top notch.

County Line Trail (OH)

Wayne County's Railfan Hotspot

January, 2017 by railfan mario

Rails to Trails of Wayne County deserves to be commended for their decision to convert the old Erie Lackawanna right of way into a trail - it parallels the CSX ex-B&O mainline for much of its length between Creston and Rittman. Since I found the trail in late 2013, I have visited it many times and seen countless trains, but one really stands out. On August 8th, 2016, while I was sitting in my car at the Kauffman Avenue parking lot, a CSX freight went past me... with Norfolk Southern SD70ACe 1071 (Central of New Jersey heritage) trailing the leading CSX diesel! On two occasions, I spent an entire day in Sterling watching and recording trains on my Sony HandyCam. Over in Rittman, there is a restaurant in the old Erie depot at the east end of the trail. They serve good food, but they aren't open past 3pm (2pm on Saturday). If you're a railfan from Wayne or Medina County, I recommend that you visit this trail!

Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail

Massillon to Cleveland

December, 2016 by railbiker

I rode this section and completed the Northern most section of the Ohio to Erie Trail.

In Cleveland, the trail is mostly on busy city streets, coexisting with vehicles. Twice I tried to post the turn-by-turn pictures, but for some reason the Northern end pictures in Cleveland haven’t been accepted.

The trail was mostly scenic, until it entered Cleveland. Drew Carey might think Cleveland is the best thing since sliced bread, but the view from this trail had a lot of scrap yards, rock quarries, sewage plants, and vacant buildings with their windows broke out. In other words, a lot of urban decay. I don’t ever plan to go back.

The Ohio to Erie Trail was supposed to go to Lake Erie, the “Erie” in the name. But this trail does not actually end at Lake Erie; it ends about half a mile South on the North end of the Carter Road vertical lift bridge. I’m not going to risk riding on the busy streets of downtown Cleveland and end up like Andrew Gast-dead inside someone’s windshield. There are too many other safe trails that are not on public roadways.

Bike and Hike Trail

Absolutely Beautiful

October, 2016 by bpatch

Without much research, we decided to try this trail. It was gorgeous! We started at parking lot by Rte. 303 and went north to end (about 10.5 miles. Had no idea what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. There are a few hills and going in this direction, unfortunately puts the downhill slope on the first leg of the ride. About 4 miles into the ride we came up an amazing waterfall that has boardwalk steps and landings to get closer to the waterfall. Absolutely gorgeous. Nice scenery and well-maintained trail.
Would definitely do again and try the other direction.

Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail

Perfect for the average rider

October, 2016 by cleary101

Members of our group ride quite a bit, but nothing too long except for Buckeye Breakaway (75 miles each way). We typically start in Independence and end in Peninsula, but decided to head South from our typical end point. What a great ride. Little change of pace, but less crowded and offered a few different elevations and road types. Got into the Valley area and stopped for lunch, got back on the path and kept heading toward the Akron trail head. Heading back appeared to be more downhill so it helped the less experienced riders. 25 miles in all and the trail was immaculate. Do yourself a favor and experience one of the best casual bike trails out there.

Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail

OECTT is all a trail can be.

September, 2016 by majordick

I've only done the path south of Akron where the bikeway is closed from dusk till dawn according to signage at every crossing. The pond just south of Akron is really scenic. The south end of Barberton offers a shopping center just off the trail.

The canal locks are magnificent and offer information panels that are unfortunately becoming unreadable. A canal boat, and awesome creamery are a couple POIs to look for in Canal Fulton.

Further south along the river you'll find Massillion and Naveere. I guessed on those spellings just now. It's a great ride and you can find another creamery in Naveere. They're pricey but it's premium ice cream. Plenty of nice scenery on this segment.

Olde Muskingum Trail

OMT is OMG

September, 2016 by majordick

While the canal offers scenery it also offers a mosquito breading ground. You've been warned.

The crushed stone is well traveled and compacted nicely. Overall it's a pleasant ride. The creamery in CF is really popular. The adjacent trails are spectacular if you still feel like riding after a Rootbeer milkshake.

Very well maintained for a bridal trail. Grass was mowed and I didn't see any hourse waste at all.

Lake to Lake Trail

Marginal road resurfaced!

September, 2016 by tagtg2003

Thank you to all the trail development personnel and supporters. Great ride. Still a bit treacherous on the ride down North Park down to University Circle which will get better when the road repairs are complete and the sidewalks reopen. Favorite experiences on this trail are the journey though the Cleveland Cultural Gardens and heading down Marginal Rd to the 9th St Pier and Rock Hall. The scenic views of the waterfront, the improvements at Burke Lakefront Airport, and a lunch stop at the Metroparks 55th St Marina come together for a fantastic ride. Thank you Cleveland for resurfacing Marginal Rd.
