Cleveland's latest link in the city's growing trail network is the Red Line Greenway, a two-mile rail-with-trail project that opened to the public in May 2021. The trail runs along the tracks of the Cleveland RTA Red Line, taking trail users along the rail corridor from the Michael Zone Recreation Center in the west to a connection with the Cleveland Foundation Centennial Trail to the northeast.
The Red Line Greenway offers a smooth asphalt path, with a well-lit route that features pleasant natural landscaping and native trees, helping to give the trail more of a scenic feel despite its urban location. The trail runs through a number of Cleveland neighborhoods, providing local residents with a useful pathway to help navigate the barriers formed by the railroad tracks and the nearby interstate, making the trail an important, safe off-road connection.
The result of years of work from the city and local volunteers to help clear the corridor for its new use, the Red Line Greenway should provide residents with a pleasant recreation pathway and a useful transportation route for years to come.
Neighborhood access to the trail is available at West 44th Street, West 41st Street, West 25th Street, and Columbus Road. Parking for the trail is available at the western trailhead in the park around the Michael Zone Recreation Center, with a lot located off West 53rd Street just north of the I-90 overpass.
The trail is also of course very accessible from the RTA Red Line train system, with the stops at West 25th/Ohio City and West 65th-Lorain offering nearby connections to the trail.
