The Pioneer Trail flows east-west between Market Avenue and Cleveland Avenue. The crushed limestone trail is short but is part of a plant to connect the Middle Branch and West Branch trails. At present, the trail winds through the grassy fields of Harvard Park and then into the adjacent Weis Park, which features a large picnic shelter as well as volleyball and shuffleboard courts.
The trail emerges on Harvard Avenue. Between Harvard and Yale avenues, the trail goes up a slight incline along the edge of a large parking lot on the Malone University campus, but it's distinctive red color helps reassure users they are still on the the right track. Turn right on Yale Avenue, and continue north on the street until parking area where the red trail is visible again. From there, the trail traces the perimeter of the campus before ending at Cleveland Avenue.
The Pioneer Trail welcomes pedestrians, cyclists and users with leashed dogs.
Harvard Park (located on Harvard Avenue and 26th Street) contains baseball fields, football fields, tennis courts, bathrooms, the Stark County North Branch Library and more. Additional parking can be found at Malone University between Harvard and Yale avenues.
