The Garrett Wonders Bike Trail, formerly the Warren Bikeway, is an integral component of the Great Ohio Lake-to-River Greenway, which will eventually link Lake Erie and the Ohio River via a multiuse, off-road trail. Warren’s portion consists of two unique parts: a greenway coursing through a utility corridor and industrial properties in the northern part of the city, and a rail-trail running southeast from the heart of Warren to its southern border.
The short northern section includes an on-road route for three blocks using lightly-traveled Fremont Avenue. In the near future, the trail will be extended north from N. River Road NW to meet the existing Western Reserve Greenway at Champion Avenue, allowing for a much longer trek from Warren to Ashtabula on Lake Erie.
The rail-trail segment of the Garrett Wonders Bike Trail begins at the intersection of Woodland Street and Chestnut Avenue, just a couple blocks southwest of Warren G. Harding High School. From the northern portion of the trail, take Paige Avenue south to pick up the southern segment. The trail runs southeast through residential neighborhoods and features a dedicated bike/ped bridge to cross busy US 422. As the trail leaves downtown Warren, it enters a more industrial landscape, before rejoining neighborhood streets at its southern endpoint at Burton Street.
Long-term plans call for linking the trail with the Niles Greenway, located just a few miles south of Warren.
Parking for the northern portion of the Garrett Wonders Bike Trail, as well as restrooms, can be found at the intersection of Fremont Avenue NE and Comstock Street NE in North End Park. For the southern section, park on neighborhood streets or at Warren G. Harding High School.
