The crack in the trail were taxing. They are ever 20-30 feet for most of the trail. It honestly kind of ruined the experience. Otherwise it’s a nice trail.

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Mid May Ride

May, 2020 by vicki1960

Always and enjoyable and great workout of a ride. 12 mile asphalt paved trail provides a beautiful view of Lake Wilhelm as the trail encircles the lake. Gently rolling terrain offers the rider a great leg workout!
The Marina is open for bait and at least one restroom in the park is open, the one at the marina.
Beautiful State Park offers fishing, hiking, boating up to 9.9 hp and picnic areas.

Shenango Trail

Memorial Day hike of the Shenango Trail 5/25/2020

May, 2020 by joseph_torok

Hiked 8 miles on the Shenango Trail; Big Bend to New Hamburg and back. Total of 13 fellow hikers, 3 bikers, and 2 horse riders. Great day for a hike but very warm in late afternoon. Trail was recently brush cut at both ends and was very dry; no recent heavy rain. Bikers/horses utilized the swinging bridge bypass just north of Big Bend; well appreciated!

Shenango Trail

End of May Hike

May, 2020 by vicki1960

Parked in New Hamburg and headed South. We went approx 3 miles and turned around only because we were on a time schedule. The trail is very well maintained by the Shenango River Watchers. It's very green and full in there with beautiful purple and yellow wildflowers. Quite a few pedestrian bridges we crossed. Each bridge now has a number. Great trail!

Stavich Bicycle Trail

Great workout trail!

May, 2020 by vicki1960

This trail is far from flat! Most sections are flat but there are a few with some gradual hills which make it a challenging workout. Parked in New Castle and pedaled to Lowellville OH and back for a nice 16 mile ride.
Well maintained since the PA surface was repaved within the past few years. However still bumpy on the OH section.

4/25/2020 Spring Hike

April, 2020 by joseph_torok

8 mile hike on Shenango Trail from Big Bend to New Hamburg and back. Temp around 57° at Noon; perfect for a longer hike. 17 other hikers had the same idea to get out of confinement on a sunny Saturday. Many new faces on the trail; including two former students! Wildlife absent due to increased numbers of hikers. Performed some brush clearing while walking.

Clarion Highlands

Mountain Bike Recommend

April, 2020 by ryanjalston14

Not a very easy trail, rail 66 is only a few miles away. Recommend a mountain bike.

Rail 66 Country Trail

Good Trail

April, 2020 by ryanjalston14

Many blind road crossing, crushed limestone surface needs redone.

Spring Hike on the Shenango Trail.

April, 2020 by joseph_torok

4/17/2020 Late afternoon hike during wet snowfall. Spotted immature bald eagle perched near riverbank. Lots of deer sign, no other hikers. Examined recently installed grade dips to channel water from the trail. Further work curtailed due to health guidelines.

March Ride

April, 2020 by vicki1960

Trail is always delightful to ride. The new enclosed tunnel construction is coming along under the Ohio turnpike but the short detour makes it easy to get around. This trail is enjoyed by many people. New asphalt resurfacing at the Canfield end.

Rail 66 Country Trail

Spring Ride

April, 2020 by vicki1960

Despite the Covid 19 pandemic, people were out and about safely enjoying the trail practicing social distancing. A beautiful country trail.

Shenango Trail

Corona Breakout Hike!

March, 2020 by joseph_torok

3/22/2020. Decided to hike Shenango Trail to break away from home and isolation. Began hike at about 9:30 AM hoping to hike about four miles and relax; maybe do a little trail work along the way. Usually on a clear, bright Sunday I see about 8-10 fellow hikers. NOT TODAY! 28 hikers, 2 bikers, and 1 horseperson were seen on trail by the time I finished my hike/work at 2:30 PM. It seems a lot of others had the same idea to escape home and boredom after being cooped up for at least a week. Trail was in great shape; little muddy and slightly high streams but very passable. Glad to see so many people with children on the trail; at least 15 elementary and Jr high age hikers; the future of hiking, biking, etc.
