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.

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.
