The Heartland Trail is a developing rail-trail project that will one day connect the northeastern Ohio communities of Orrville and Clinton. A mile of the pathway is already on the ground in Orrville, beginning at the downtown trailhead, just 3 blocks from the Orrville Historical Museum on Depot Street. The trail then threads northward through the downtown business district and the Orrville Dog Park before terminating near Hostetler Road.
The next phase of the trail opened in September 2019 and spans 2.4 miles between Forrer Road in Orrville and the Village of Marshallville.
Once the trail reaches Clinton, it will connect to the Ohio & Erie Towpath Trail, which spans more than 80 miles from Cleveland to Bolivar.
The Orrville Historical Museum features restrooms, benches and a drinking fountain. Its parking lot is at the corner of West Market Street and Depot Street.
You can also park at the Orrville Dog Park on Ella Street. A paved path leads to the trail.
TrailLink is a free service provided by Rails-to-Trails conservancy
