Western Reserve Greenway Bike Trail

Introduction

Spanning 16.7 miles across Trumbull County from Bloomfield Township to City of Warren, the paved multi-use Western Reserve Greenway trail is easily the most popular park MetroPark has to offer. Visitors are able to access the trail from three trailheads: Sunside Trailhead located along State Route 305 in Champion Township, Oakfield Station, located about a mile east of State Route 45 along Hyde-Oakfield Road in Bristol Township and Lockwood Trailhead located on ST RT 87 in Bloomfield Township. The trail caters to bicyclists, runners, pedestrians, equestrians, and cross-country skiers, and takes its visitors through open fields, sheltering forests, and past suburban neighborhoods. The Western Reserve Greenway is just one of many trails which make up the 100-mile long Great-Ohio-Lake-To-River Greenway (GOLTRG), a mostly completed paved route that is anticipated to stretch from Lake Erie in Ashtabula City to the Ohio River at East Liverpool.

Present Conditions

Currently there is a trail closure between Hyde-Oakfield Road to Mahan Denman Road. There is a on-road detour Hyde-Oakfield Road to Oak Field North to Mahan Denman Road. Reverse detour for users heading south.

Visitors are encouraged to use several modes of non-motorized transportation on the trail, including bicycling, running, in-line skating, cross-country skiing, and walking. Horses are also permitted so long as they ride alongside the trail and not directly on the pavement, a rule set in place for the health and safety of the animals as well as to keep the trails clear of debris. Snowmobiles, while at one time allowed, have since been banned due to the damage the vehicles cause.
