Abandoned railroad bed maintained regularly and very well by Stark Parks. You'll Likely only see the University of Mount Union cross country team and a very occasional walker that lives in the immediate area using the trail because it is unknown even by most Alliance residents.

Iron horse is a very nice well maintained trail. Lots of shade and still pleasant on a 90 degree day. We biked and had the trail all to ourselves.
We also biked the other trail to State street. Which traveles through a neighborhood and some Mount Union playing fields. That trail is only a couple of miles.

Good trail if you like "paved" trails. Less chance for ticks than grassy type trails. Good views of farm land. Would be good for strollers or wheel chairs. Would be really nice in the fall.

Nice short ride this morning. Path is very well maintained crushed limestone and nicely shaded from Beech to Cenfield. Saw only a handful of walkers and bikers on this beautiful Saturday morning. Trail is extended to State St, passing through a quiet neighborhood on the way.

Nice even graded cinder/stone surface. Really good for dogs (on leash), kids, strollers, etc. Surprisingly scenic given that it runs through a "populated" rural area.
