Trail is about 10 miles from union to Strothers Ohio 20 miles with the return trip. Trail does not stop at Lowellvile Ohio. Ride straight through this nice little town past the school to the end of the trail. The Ohio side is kind of rough. a lot of the pavement is cracked and rises up a few inches where the roots have grown underneath the blacktop. Nothing dangerous. Just a little bumpy. Sometimes you can see some bald eagles near the swamp if they chose to stay.
Can be busy near the parking areas but clears out after the first mile or so.

Some parts the trail shares the road with vehicles, but overall a nice ride.

This is one of my go-to trails in the area. It's never too crowded and offers some pretty views of the Mahoning River. I would contest that this trail is closer to moderate than easy. The people who I've brought with me who aren't avid bikers have trouble with the hills on this trail. On a windy day the hills are pretty awful. In-and-out this trail is closer to 23 or 24 miles total (so 11.5 to 12 from trailhead to trailhead). The starting point in Lowellville, Ohio is actually off of Broad Street (runs behind the high school and then through town to where the map on here shows the starting point).

good, paved trail. no big ups or downs, but has a few decent low grade pulls uphill. I would rate it as easy.

Did the entire Stavich Bike Trail out and back from New Castle to Struthers. Our first bike ride of 2016. The hills are relatively easy ride for cyclists of all ability levels.
