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

afternoon ride on the Nile

The trail was fairly well-maintained sections of the of the trail had a lot of root heaves, which made the riding a little rough. There was a couple of road crossings that had jagged metal supports sticking up from the ground for posts that should’ve been there, if you’re not careful you might run over one as they’re not well marked.

October 2022

Always an enjoyable ride on this trail. Saw some turtles in the large pond along the trail. Leaves still very green, not changed for Fall. Trail in good condition having recently been sealcoated.

Found this to be well maintained and scenic. Saw deer, turkeys and birds especially near Meander Reservoir. Had ridden this trail regularly.. relaxing. Merges with Metro Trails.. nice ride thru Austin town then on to Canfield.

June 2020 Ride

Always great to bike on the trail in addition to the Metro Parks Bikeway which connects at the Mahoning & Trumbull County lines. Niles is approx 4 miles in length and the adjoining Metro Parks Bikeway is 11 miles. Trail starts in the city of Niles and goes through a park like area and old industrial sites. Trail in very good cared for condition.


Nice little trail

Though 4.5 miles in length, it does connect with the Metro Parks trail at the Trumbull and Mahoning County lines. Niles trail has a small parking lot at Depot Street. A large parking lot with restrooms can be found in Niles on East State Street. Informational signs along the way. Flat asphalt paved. Did notice some bollards were missing approx 1 mile marker so be careful of metal sticking up.

Relaxing ride

This was a nice little ride. Can't wait to take the kids with me next time.

A Well Signed Trail that Needs to be Finished

I rode this trail in June of 2017. One feature that I found unique or interesting about this trail was a sign at either end of the trail that pointed out different points of interest and their mile marker location on the upcoming trail. When you reached that point of interest their would be a sign indicating the mile marker and what you were looking at. I thought that was both interesting and helpful.

The Niles Greenway is designed to be part of the bigger Great Ohio Lake to River Greenway, a developing corridor that when completed will allow trail users to travel from Lake Erie to the Ohio River. The unfinished section in Niles could really open up the GOLR Greenway because it would link the Western Reserve Greenway, the Garrett Wonders Bike Trail, the Niles Greenway, and the Mill Creek Metroparks Greenway into one trail from Ashtabula, OH to Canfield, OH.

Winter Ride

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.

Nice ext. to the Metroparks Tr

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

Enjoyable 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.

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.
