Niles Greenway Description

The Niles Greenway is a paved, multi-use path running north–south between the county line on the south and the town of Niles. The pleasant trail passes through a mix of wooded areas, scattered light industrial estates and a few suburban back yards.

The trail offers easy access to downtown Niles, Meander Creek Reservoir and an off-road route between Niles and towns south, including Austintown and Canfield. From the trail's southern end at County Line Road, you can continue a short ways farther south than Canfield along the MetroParks Bikeway for seamless ride.

Parking and Trail Access

At the northern end, park in the lot on E. Church Street (off E. State St.). At the southern end, park in a small lot off Depot Steet just west of Township Hwy 557.

Niles Greenway Reviews

Enjoyed the last full weekend of Winter with a ride
on the Niles Greenway Trail, which is a seamless
connection of Mill Creek Metroparks trail. We parked
in the small lot on Depot street. Holds about 6 cars.
Not much greenery this time of year, but a nice ride on the trail.

We parked at Depot street in Niles. Bikes up to Niles 4.5 miles and back. Then continued to Western Reserve Road on the Metro Parks Trail. Total round trip 25 ish miles.Nice trail

We had some trouble finding the trailhead. The directions were correct on the this site but printed out differently! It has a nice parking lot and clean restrooms. The ride was really a pleasure. We liked the varied surroundings including town, rural, Meander , train tracks and bridges. Stopped for ripe black raspberries along the way too. Will ride this one again!

Nice little trail. We parked in Niles and rode about 1/2 mile to the Meaner Res. then back South to where it connects to the Metro Parks trail.

I have walked this trail several times, from the beginning at State Street through the Mahoning Water site at Salt Springs Road. This trail starts in an industrial neighborhood in Niles, passing many working industrial sites, and at times there is graffiti on this part of the trail. Overall, it is a pleasant walk. The trail crosses roads that automobile and truck traffic uses, and trail users must exercise caution when crossing these roads. Of special note is the crossing at State Route 46, which is heavily travelled. While signs are posted on these roads, unfortunately auto and truck traffic still travel at a great rate of speed on Route 46, and it would be great if a footbridge overpassing this crossing would be built. Once past the industrial area, the trail becomes more rural.
