The northern end of this section of trail has things to recommend it like the embankment along Rt.21 and the Massilon Waste Water Treatment Plant, but the southern end has wetland environs and seclusion. Midway on the trail, when it crosses Warmington Rd. is John Glenn Grove, a pleasant and wooded area that has been reclaimed from a nearby strip mine. It's a shame that the stream still suffers from acid mine drainage but it's not as bad as I'm sure it once was.

Very easy trail for bikes. Part of the Ohio and Erie Towpath system that extends from Zoar to Cleveland. Ar the Lake Street trail head, there is a great stop with a deli and a bike shop.
