MetroParks Bikeway

A Great Link in a Future Larger Route

February, 2018 by orangedoug

I rode this trail on June 24, 2017. The Mill Creek MetroParks Bikeway is a gem. It is well maintained and from the number of riders I saw on the trail on this Saturday, appreciated by local residents. It is well marked, features an award-winning trailhead design at Kirk Road, and also has a trail map available at the Mill Creek MetroParks Farm trailhead. You've got to love a 10.5 mile trail that comes with its own printed map. My only complaint is the number of road crossings that you experience on this trail and the odd crossing angles and near blindspots at a few of those crossings.

The MetroParks Bikeway is designed to be part of the bigger Great Ohio Lake to River Greenway, a developing corridor that when completed will allow trail users to travel from Lake Erie to the Ohio River. At its current southern end the trail just ends at Western Reserve Road. There is a small parking lot on the other side the road. There is the possibility that this trail could be extended beyond this current terminus and connect up with the Little Beaver Creek Greenway in Washingtonville, Ohio. When you ride north you will pass under the Ohio Turnpike (I-80) and when you cross into Trumbull County the trail becomes the Niles Greenway. If the gap between Niles and Warren, Ohio is filled in you will connect with the Western Reserve Greenway and will be able to travel all the way to Ashtabula, Ohio.

Little Beaver Creek Greenway Trail

A Surprisingly Shaded Trail in the Midst of Farm Country

February, 2018 by orangedoug

I rode the Little Beaver Creek Greenway in June of 2017. The trail is located in Columbiana County which is southwest of Youngstown, Ohio. It runs between Lisbon, Ohio and a little town called Washingtonville, Ohio. The trail is 12.5 miles long from end to end. It is a trail that is a part of the larger Great Ohio Lake to River Greenway a planned route that will run from Lake Erie in Ashtabula, Ohio to the Ohio River in East Liverpool, Ohio. On the northern end of the current trail a gap between Washingtonville and The Mill Creek Metroparks Bikeway south of Canfield, OH must be filled. On the southern end there is currently nothing beyond Lisbon toward East Liverpool.

What I found surprising about this trail was the amount of tree cover there was on the southern end of the trail between Lisbon and Leetonia. As you drive to the trailheads on either end of this trail you'll pass through farm country and plenty of wide open fields. I expected to be lathering up with the sunscreen to protect my fair skin. I put in the sunscreen but I really probably didn't need it until reaching Leetonia. From Leetonia north the trail is more exposed to the sun.

Berlin Lake Trail

Short Scenic Trail

January, 2018 by orangedoug

On April 28, 2017 I rode Berlin Lake Trail in Deerfield Township which is WSW of Youngstown, Ohio. This is a short little rail trail that is recreational in use. There were a lot of walkers using the trail around 9 a.m. The trail is almost completely surrounded by water. If you got here early enough you'd probably see some spectacular sunrises. This is a trail you can knock out pretty quickly as a round trip is only 4.5 miles.

Olde Muskingum Trail

An Alternative to the Ohio & Erie Towpath Trail

January, 2018 by orangedoug

In April of 2017 I rode the Olde Muskingum Trail. This trail can be found along the Tuscarawas River in Canal Fulton, Ohio. To me this is an unusual trail. On one side of the Tuscarawas River you have the Congressman Ralph Regula Towpath Trail which follows the old Ohio & Erie Canal. This trail has historical significance, it currently has a working section of canal, and an actual canal boat ride if you are so inclined. The Olde Muskingum Trail is on the opposite side of the river and was an old railroad siding or right of way that has been converted into a trail. It too is a crushed limestone surface and you would be hard pressed to tell the two trails apart except for the canal facilities visible and in use on the Towpath Trail. The Olde Muskingum Trail is approximately 6 miles long. If you combine the two trails with Cherry Street in the north and Forty Corners Road in the south you could make a 12.5 mile loop to ride. The Congressman Regula Towpath Trail is part of the Ohio to Erie cross state trail. Combine that with the working canal boat attraction and the Towpath can get pretty busy during the summer. My guess is that the locals probably prefer the Olde Muskingum Trail because it is less busy.

Stark Electric Railway Trail

Is a One Mile Trail Useful?

January, 2018 by orangedoug

The Stark Electric Railway Trail is a short trail (1.15 miles) that traces the former interurban steetcar route that used to exist along Mahoning Avenue in Canton, OH. The asphalt trail surface was in good condition. I started at the corner of Kirby and Mahoning Avenues and rode southwest on the trail to it's listed endpoint at the corner of Hilcher and Mahoning Avenues. However, the sidewalk/bike path still remains wider than a standard sidewalk until you reach a small memorial park honoring the armed forces and police and fire officers at the intersection of Royal Ave, 15th Street, and Mahoning Ave., NE. I found that crossing the intersection of Harmont and Mahoning Avenues near the center of the trail was tricky because of the volume of traffic. While this trail commemorates the former electric rail line that existed here, unless there is some future plan to lengthen this trail or connect it to another, it seems pointless.

Nickelplate Trail (OH)

Just a Neighborhood Trail

January, 2018 by orangedoug

This is a short (2.5 miles) neighborhood recreation trail that was created from a former rail line. Whether there is room for expansion in the future is unknown, but as an outside observer, I view it as doubtful as the trail endings occur where the former rail corridor enters into private lands. Signs at the southern end of the trail mention you are entering private land. The highlight of this trail is its connection to Mary C. Metzger Park.

County Line Trail (OH)

A Rail Trail that Reminds You of Its Heritage

January, 2018 by orangedoug

This roughly 7 mile trail runs between the city of Rittman and the village of Creston in Wayne County, Ohio and parallels a very active CSX rail line. It's a flat trail that a family can enjoy together, although there is a one mile on-road section near the village of Sterling and one active rail crossing there as well. Therefore, families with younger children may want to avoid this one. One interesting feature of this trail is a downloadable trail app that provides information about history, fitness, and wildlife at certain markers along the way.

Chippewa Rail-Trail

Too Short a Trail Unless You're Local

This is another short trail (2.4 miles) in Medina County, OH. The trail is paved but there is not much here at present. However it appears to have the potential to be expanded on both ends of the trail. Altogether out and back I rode 4.8 miles. After viewing a map before this posting there is potential to extend this trail north into Medina and then possibly northeast from town to connect with the Lester Rail Trail. The rail corridor does extend south past the current Chippewa Road trailhead and could be expanded toward the southern Medina County line. At present, you can connect to the Chippewa Inlet Trail if you ride 8 tenths of a mile west on Chippewa Road (which didn't appear to be too busy) from the Chippewa Trail Trailhead.

Lester Rail Trail

Short Trail With a Few Interesting Sights

January, 2018 by orangedoug

I rode this Trail on April 12, 2017. This nearly 3 mile crushed limestone trail is sort of boring except for a few interesting sites along the trail such as the Northeast Ohio Live Steamers Club, the Gold Star Families Memorial and the Medina County Career Center. This would be a much more interesting trail, and more likely to attract more riders, if it would be extended southward to connect with The Chippewa Rail Trail south of the city of Medina, Ohio. Maps appear to indicate that these two trails are part of the same rail line.

Panhandle Trail

amazing trail around 20 miles of continueus pavement

November, 2017 by juliettoscarhotelnovember

this trails amazing, i saw someone complain that they didn't like the new pavement. i can't understand why. it's flawless it's fast it dries fast, idk i love it, it connects to the Montour trail which is crushed limestone the whole way if u really hate pavement. i hate riding roads around here, it's literally a death wish and i don't even like sharing the roads with bikes when I'm driving. this trail is like riding a road with out any cars to worry about.

The Holmes County Trail from Glenmont southwest until it meets the Mohican Valley Trail is now fully paved and is a very nice section of the trail. This section does not presently appear on the map.
