Providing pedestrians and bicyclists a safe and enjoyable option for traveling about 50 blocks east-west through the City of Cleveland, this urban trail is a perfect example of the opportunities and benefits that are made possible by investing in walkability, connectivity, and accessibility.
A paved multi-use pathway, the Opportunity Corridor Trail is part of Cleveland's concerted efforts to revitalize the historically underserved area nicknamed the ‘Forgotten Triangle' which was subject to years of disinvestment.
Linking downtown Cleveland and University Circle via a newly constructed connector boulevard, the 3-mile Opportunity Corridor Project is the key to the city's strategic development of vibrant mixed-use communities and neighborhoods. The focused reinvestment includes a variety of housing, grocery stores, green areas, medical facilities, civic spaces, and numerous other projects—all with the added intention of generating new job opportunities for the local residents.
The trail offers access to playgrounds, gardens, museums, performing art spaces, centers for art and history, recreational facilities, and more. The northern end is located in University Circle, where Case Western Reserve University has its campus. Enlivened by its student population, this area is a hub of arts and culture.
Running between East 55th Street at I-490 and East 105th St in University Circle, the Opportunity Corridor Trail provides residents with alternative and accessible means for navigating their community. Whether you're running errands, grocery shopping, going to work or school, exercising, or visiting friends, this multi-use trail is for all.
Access to the trail is available at numerous points along the boulevard. Please view the TrailLink map to plan your route.
Public transit provides service along the route, which makes it possible to combine walking/biking and riding. At southern end of the trail, the RTA East 55 Rapid Station (2880 E 55th St) includes a bus station, a subway station, and a train station. The station has bike racks and free parking for RTA patrons with a total of 50 spaces that includes at least four accessible spaces. Visit the RTA website for more information.
