The Thomas W. Hopper Legacy Trail follows a former rail bed from the Blackhawk golf course to Miller Park, which offers a small playground. Of historical significance is the nearby Galena Shale and Brick Factory, which dates back to the 1890s and which is why the trail was initially named the Galena Brick Trail. The trail is largely wooded and includes a bridge over Walnut Creek. The trail meets the Sandel Legacy Trail in Sunbury, near Big Walnut Elementary School.
The trail is just one small piece of the developing Ohio to Erie Trail network, which will span 320 miles across Ohio from Lake Erie in Cleveland to the Ohio River in Cincinnati.
Trail access is at Galena's Miller Park, which offers a parking lot off N. Walnut Street.
