I grew up on this trail. Before it was paved as a kid running along the old railroad bed and adventuring around the woods. There is a creek that leads to the lake right next to the dam wall. If you follow the creek it is one of the nicest and peaceful creeks I've hiked. Recommend it, it's a difficult hike to get down and across the creek that you have to cross a couple times from side to side. A fun fun adventure though for sure.
Useless trail it goes to nowhere from nowhere. Tried to access from the campground as it looks like that is possible from Google but no. Stupid....waist of time
Good trail, went out yesterday for an easy bike ride, mostly flat and all of it is paved. Nice views of the river. At the end of the trail there is a dirt path that you can continue on to but it comes to a stop at a set of active rail road tracks so be careful, I didn't want to cross the tracks to explore any further.
Great trail for the casual hiker or everyday walker. Lots of tree cover, very peaceful flat paved trail. Summer honeysuckle blooms along the path for enjoyable smells. Wildlife is minimal with only chipmunks most the time. Great for dogs, children and biking.
Love it! Quiet and peaceful even though there are many people using it, different views from wetlands and the lake to farms and cows.... Perfect place to bring your family, or get in an evening walk/ride/jog.
Although Trout Island Trail doesn't seem like a true hiking trail, it's a great trail/path to bring friends and family and spend the day hiking, riding bikes, etc. The trail is mostly paved until you get a ways in and start to walk between some wetlands, and the scenery is nice in some areas. I would recommend this trail/path to anyone who wants to take advantage of a beautiful day and get outdoors!
Great trail for all seasons. The western trail-head begins in Sharpsville, PA and is very easy to get to by car, bicycle or walking. Many local residents use this trail for their morning walks and runs. Popular stroll with families and pet owners; it brings the urban dweller right into the midst of nature. Trail is mostly paved asphalt. It passes by the Shenango Dam about a half mile along the trail and eventually enters an area with wetlands on both sides.
