Stark Electric Railway Trail Description

The Stark Electric Railway Trail runs on a former interurban rail line that linked Canton and Salem via Louisville, Alliance and Sebring from 1902 to 1939. The company was nicknamed the ‘Bachelor Railroad’ because most of its executives were unmarried. Through the 1930s the line was busy, but buses were less expensive to operate and the train eventually ceased operation.

In 2001, the Stark County Park District constructed the first segment of trail along State Route 153 between Hilcher Avenue and Kirby Avenue on the eastern edge of Canton. Long-term plans call for the extension of the trail eastward along the former rail corridor to Alliance.

Parking and Trail Access
