Introduction

The 23-mile Mahoning River Water Trail traverses through Trumbull County beginning in Newton Township at Foster MetroPark and ending at the Packard Park in the City of Warren. With it flowing by forested groves, fields of corn and wheat, suburban streets and beautiful wetland complexes, this trail is full of natural beauty as well as history. Other points of interest along the trail include the Newton Falls Covered Bridge, the 2nd oldest covered bridge in the State of Ohio, and remnants of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal. This river offers wonderful paddling, fishing, wildlife watching, and other recreational opportunities.
