The Chessie Circle Trail (formerly Westside Corridor Rail-to-Trail) provides a paved (and compacted stone), 11-mile north-south route through western Toledo built along the former Toledo Terminal Railroad route. From its northern end at Bowman Park, the trail whizzes by residential neighborhoods and some light industrial areas on its way toward the Maumee River.
The rail-trail provides safe passage over I-475 and access to Ottawa Park (one of the city's largest parks), Highland Park, and the University of Toledo. Although most of the route is not shaded, the southernmost tip of the trail dives through the trees as it comes to an end at River Road.
Note that the trail features significant stretches of on-road riding. The only fully off-road sections are from Bowman Park to Monroe Street; frrom Ottawa Park to University of Toledo, and between Medford Drive and River Road.
From north to south, parking is available at Bowman Park (4793 Jackman Rd.), Ottawa Park (2201 Ottawa Parkway), and Highland Park (1690 South Ave.).
