Newton Falls Trail Description

The Newton Falls Trail, built on a former railroad bed, follows the Mahoning River as it winds its way downtown. The route provides pleasant neighborhood views of the quaint township that was established in the early 1800s, as well as access to Newton Falls Community Park at its southern end. However, trail users spoiled by wide rail-trails might be disappointed; the Newton Falls Trail is a skinny 4 feet wide throughout its entire length.

A highlight of the trail is a view of the bridge that crosses the Mahoning River to connect Bridge Street with Arlington Road. The covered bridge was constructed in 1831 and is the second oldest in the state.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Newton Falls Trail's southern tip near Newton Falls Community Park on S. Center Street, or mid-trail at the intersection of State Route 534/Broad Street and W. River Road.

Not a Destination Trail by Any Means

I struggle to call this much of a trail as it really isn't more than a glorified sidewalk that replaced an old railroad line through town. From what I've been able to ascertain from Google Maps this trail seems as though it has the possibility of being extended in both directions. However, it's hard to tell if it's the businesses on the Railroad Street end of the trail, the residences on the First Street end of the trail, the rail lines still used by CSX in the area, or the funding that is holding up future expansion. Another reviewer talked about expanding south to the Berlin Lake Trail.

walked this trail on April 6th and enjoyed it. very nice trail and was able to see the covered bridge and walked over to it and walked through it. very nice piece of history there. also walked past the old train station. I hope they work on extending this trail north to phalanx station and south to berlin lake to pick up another section. I also found a very good restaurant with great service, called the covered bridge restaurant (right downtown just a little walk west of the trail on 534), the lasagna was absolutely awesome.
