We drove 90 minutes from Pennsylvania to bike this trail and it was well worth the trip. Started in Lisbon and rode the whole way to Washingtonville and back. The trail is well maintained asphalt, mostly level and probably 75% shady, going through some lovely wooded areas. There is a little off- trail street section through the village of Leetonia, which is well marked, does include a few steeper sections, but very little car traffic. Several trailheads along the way included portajohns. Overall, a highly recommended trail.
Hiked New Hamburg to Big Bend. Loved it. No need to worry about poison ivy if you stay on trail. Thank you.
This is a favorite route for my wife and I when we want an easy ride, especially if we bring along friends that do not do a lot of riding.
Because of all the streets the trail crosses, it presents a GREAT opportunity to teach & reinforce how to avoid dangers when crossing streets (almost every ride has me holding up our riding group as a vehicle runs a light/stop-sign/crosswalk, or turns right while driver is looking left).
A treat is to stop at El Tren Grill for lunch (access from trail, outdoor seating; restaurant with caboose & Pullman car). Just about 3.5 miles from trailhead makes for an easy ride back (which is good; they serve lots with each order).
We look forward to Phase 3 being completed into downtown Akron.
We are really enjoyed our bike ride. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because on the offshoot paths where the fishing spots are, there's a lot of broken glass.
Back in 2004 my wife and I rode this trail. I remembered that we had trouble finding the trailhead at that time. Now, in 2020, my grandson and I went back and found a trailhead that did not even exist back then, in Washingtonville, just off Route 14 -- and Leetonia is only a couple of miles to the South, with another nice trailhead and parking area. We did the round trip to Lisbon and back. Lots of fun and lots of shade. I think maybe 80% of the trail is covered by trees. It is downhill from Washingtonville, so be ready for some uphill cycling from Lisbon back to Leetonia or Washingtonville. The 66-year-old grandpa and the 15-year-old grandson passed everyone going back up the hill! Anyway, lots of nice people and nice scenery. You can also rent a bicycle or a motorized cycle at the trailhead in Lisbon, if you decide to start there. I do wholeheartedly recommend this trail. About 25 miles round trip. One of the best biking trails in Ohio.
Great bike trail. The details here as well as the brochure map state there are restrooms at the Sunside Trailhead. I pass through there every other day and have never seen restrooms. Did the remove them?
The Shenango Trail is nearly completely weed free and brush cut. Two small sections must still be cleared. Maintenance is behind due to COVID-19 work restrictions. The southern section from Big Bend to New Hamburg, 4 miles, is the best it has ever been. The section bordering the beaver pond is still a concern. The swinging bridge bypass is clear and is regularly used by equestrians.
We have ridden quite a few of the long rail-trails (GAP/C&O, Katy, Couer d'Alene, Chief Ladiga/Silver Comet, White Pines, Pine Creek, Greenbrier, Northbend) and The OTET is unmatched for the variety of things to see and do along the way. The landscapes vary from the lake to the industrial history of Cleveland, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, The Towpath, Amish country, Columbus, the soybean and cornfields of western Ohio, the Little Miami River and Downtown Cincinnati.
The trail will be finished next year in Cleveland and there will be only a small road section on W25th and Franklin. Then its path all the way to Dalton (once the temporary construction of the CSO project in Akron is complete and the trail restored and the detour removed). The 17 miles on the back country roads between Dalton and Fredericksburg were pleasant with very little traffic. Same with the 10 mile section between Centerburg and Sunbury. The Downtown Connector Trail between Alum Creek and the Scioto River had its interesting moments but wasn't bad (but it wasn't rush hour when we did it). The Camp Chase Trail is temporarily rerouted along Wilson Rd but pay attention to the detour signs so you don't get off track. Only other section that was a little rough was Just east of Cincy on Wooster Pike - rough road, and fast moving traffic that doesn't like to give you 3'. But its only a couple miles.
All in all a wonderful trip. We took 4 days to do it but we had ridden most of the sections in the last few years so were less compelled to stop. If this is your first or only time take a few extra days, make a lot of stops and enjoy all this route has to offer.
Very nice trail. Not too much incline except in Akron where the detour is. We rode from Zoar to Cleveland. We stayed in Akron after the first night at the courtyard which is just off the connector trail and easy to get too. Mostly fine gravel but we did this trail with road tires and had no issues. (A few flats) but really no issues. It does get busy in the cuyahoga valley section but most people were kind and moved over.
We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.
This was a nice trail that wound in and out of the metro park. Much of the ride was under the cover of trees which made it comfortable on a warm day. Plenty of ups and down to the y Trailterrain which provided some challenges at times. I would recommend this trail.
July 2020. Parked at Tarr Road in Middlefield. Biked North to the end in Chardon, and back for a 25 mile round trip. Entire trail is asphalt paved.
The southern section from Middlefield to Headwaters Park is accessible to horses.
North of Headwaters Park is the trails highest point so you will notice it while pedaling.
The trail goes through Amish country of fields and some wooded areas. There are 5 small covered bridges along the trail.
Trail services in Middlefield include places to eat, and a few stores / shops and if you need water you can get some in Middlefield.
