Begin at Deer Creek Reservoir or Gaskill St. and use a 260-foot free span bridge to cross a spillway, a 100-foot boardwalk under Rt. 225, and an on-road section using Greenbower St. and Rockhill Ave.  The trail connects to the Iron Horse Trail at Vine St. and follows city sidewalks through downtown Alliance before meeting the old railroad route under E. Broadway Ave. and heading south toward State St.

This 4.46 mile scenic trail offers fishing access to the Mahoning River and a great view of a bottom land hardwood forest. Spring flowers are abundant along the trail and include jack in the pulpit, false solomon’s seal, and swamp buttercup.

The Mahoning Valley Trail has been adopted by the University of Mount Union-Green Raiders, the club sponsors cleanup projects along the trail throughout the year.
