Brooke Pioneer Trail

Trail is open!

Trail is now open from end to end after bridge construction. Nicely paved trail. The entry spur to the new bridge over Ohio River is still closed.

Zoar Valley Trail

Apr 2024 - Trail under water from Lock 9 (Before MM82+) to Route 800 (MM86)

April, 2024 by crableg300

Hi

I want to first say, I love this trail and it is a fantastic and quiet place to go for a nice walk or bike ride (11.4 round trip from Ft Laurens to Route 800). I have let some folks know when there are trees / debris on the trail and they are removed quickly. The town of Zoar is a very close by (5 minutes or so away) and I would encourage folks to check it out and also the Wetlands area too which is a hidden gem in the town. Also Ft Laurens (in Bolivar) has a museum and they have a Revolutionary War re-enactment each year that is well done with so many people explaining things too - it is a must to attend. With that said, the trail is under water for the most part from MM82+ to the end at Route 800 because of the recent storms. This is very sad and it will take a long while for the water to recede. A few places to eat that are great are the Canal Street Diner and the Towpath Tavern - they are in Bolivar and that is 5 minutes away from Ft Laurens. Both have great service and good food.

Great start. This trail needs to be re-established from Canton down through Beach City and finally to Urichsville !

Great Guernsey Trail

An Awesome Little Trail

February, 2024 by rgombeda_tl

The Great Guernsey Trail is a 7 mile (14 down and back) flat rail-to-trail. The pavement is in really good shape. A few years ago they resurfaced the first mile which did away with the washboarding and cracks. At the Corduroy Rd. trailhead there is paved parking and a portable toilet. There is also an overflow lot where you can park if the paved lot is full. During the summer months a little concession stand is open and they sell water, Gatorade, snacks and such. There is also a skate park, dog park and archery range. As you go down the trail you will come across a sign that points to Coal Ridge Park and Trails. DO NOT miss this beautiful spot. It is an old strip pit that is open for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, trail walking and is kept in really good condition. As you go down the trail there are numerous rest spots, benches, and restrooms. The scenery is great. You will see wetlands, woodlands, grasslands, and a plethora of wildlife.

Ohio to Erie Trail

We did a 8.45 mi round trip between Harvard Rd and Warren Rd overhead bridge. Being in a wheelchair we had no issues whatsoever with the surface of the trail.

Kokosing Gap Trail

Kokosing Gap Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

Wow! I decided to go 100 miles out of my way to ride this trail and I'm so glad I did! In my quest to ride my bike in all fifty states, I "settled" on the Kokosing Gap Trail for my Ohio ride. I knew it was highly regarded, but I must say it truly exceeded my expectations! I've ridden on trails all over the United States, and I would put this one in my top ten!

The trail provides so many pleasurable experiences. There are woods that create a canopy over the trail, beautiful river views, cornfields, pastures with cows and horses, historic railroad bridges, wildlife, rolling hills, sculptures, an old-timey train, Kenyon College, and the friendliest trail users I have ever encountered. I did this ride in early October with some of the leaves beginning to change color, but they must be absolutely spectacular in their full autumn peak!

Be sure to allow enough time to travel the entire trail from end to end to enjoy and appreciate the total experience! It's flat enough to do the full round trip.

Kudos to all for the design, development and upkeep of this awesome trail!

Conotton Creek Trail

Awesome trail

November, 2023 by phil040167

Super nice trail to ride on a fall day . Well maintained. The ride from Bowerston to scio is very beautiful any time you ride . Make sure you stop at the dairy bar in the summer and take a trip up to Main Street to the country pub food is great and so is the service

County Line Trail (OH)

Nice trail

September, 2023 by tyoakum

Nice trail for walking, running, and cycling. On the Saturday morning that I rode this, there were two guys blowing leaves off the trail, so it is being maintained. Be aware that there is about a quarter mile of the route that is off trail and you’re on a country road. The road doesn’t appear to be heavily traveled, though.

Sippo Valley Trail

More like a mountain bike than multipurpose trail.

September, 2023 by egeorge

Lovely views but the trail condition as of 9/23 was terrible. Loose gravel throughout, numerous areas of severe pavement heaving, overgrown weeds hanging onto the trail, loose and warped boards on bridges, and a section in Lincoln Park that was unable to be ridden on due to sand and heaving. Numerous intersection are dangerously obscured due to unmaintained sightlines. The entire trail looks like it has been ignored and unmaintained for some time. Email with concerns sent to Stark Parks.

Little Beaver Creek Greenway Trail

Very nice ride till you get to Leetonia.Then it's brick roads and up and down street hills, then you're good to go on the other side of town to Washington ville.
