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.
This was a fairly straight trail from Struthers, Ohio through Lowellville, Ohio and then on to close to New Castle, Pennsylvania. The trail follows pathway of an old electric rail line that traveled between the cities previously mentioned. I don't know if the original line was any longer than the route we traveled and I don't think that there is much chance of this trail being extended in either direction as it parallels a fairly active rail line.
This trail isn't exactly flat, but the length of climbs and the gradualness of the trails grade don't make this trail particularly difficult. I mention it simply because you find yourself comparing the elevation of the bikeway to that of the parallel active rail lines. Sometimes you find yourself looking down on the tracks, sometimes you actually find yourself several feet below them.
I rode this as an out and back on what was probably the first really hot day of the summer. Bring plenty of water, as the only source of water would be in Lowellville, Ohio at a grocery or convenience store. I did not see a source of water along the 10 miles of trail.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I rode the GAP /CO this past Labor Day weekend- best bike trip ever. 120 miles from Pittsburgh to Meyersdale (120 miles). Almost flat- never any sense of climbing, smooth trail on a road bike with 32mm tires and fenders. The ride from Meyersdale to Cumberland was easy- downhill the last 30 miles or so. Thanks to all the groups that put the trail together- what an asset to the region.
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.
Rented bikes from Cumberland Connection (they were AWESOME!). We didn't get on the trail till 4:30 and made it to Gunter Hotel in Frostburg by sunset at 6:29. It is a lot of uphill walking from the trail to downtown Frostburg. Ask for room with new beds at Gunter and make sure and go to the mens bathroom to see the 'jail cell'. Ate at Shift which was amazing! We were on the trail by 8:40am, lunch at Rockwood (Rockwood Mills-the dessert were amazing!) by 12:30 and made it to Confluence by 3:30 for our shuttle pick up . We stopped many, many times for pictures! I hardly wanted to blink because this was such an amazing, beautiful experience!
Had a picnic lunch at old train station in Lisbon. Then biked 5 miles along trail and back. Lovely, well-maintained trail.
We really enjoyed this trail. Definitely a repeater. Our 7 year old enjoyed visiting the Metroparks Farm. Lovely trail!
There is a porta-john at the start of the trail just before you get to Donna's Bike Shop. Then another just after the two mile mark and a parking lot. Then one at Franklin Square at 8.5 miles from Lisbon. Also has a parking lot. Then another one at the 10 mile mark with a parking lot. Also has a Gazebo if you want to rest and have a snack. Then if you continue thru Leetonia the trail goes another 2.5 miles. Once you get back on the trail past Leetonia about a mile or so there is another porta-john and a parking lot. They recently made a path from there to walk up to the coke ovens. At the end is another Gazebo and porta-john. On the way back if you are hungry you can stop at Dairy Queen just a short distance from the trail in Leetonia. Hope this helped anyone that rides this great trail. Any questions about the trail feel free to ask me.
