Get your exercise and some fresh air on this suburban 5.40 mile trail connecting Washington Square, Walsh University’s Hoover Park, North Canton’s baseball fields, Hoover High School, and the Hoover District. Hike, bike, walk, run, or jog on the mostly limestone trail, reinforced with asphalt in a few spots.

Surrounding natural areas provide ideal habitat for hawks, foxes, groundhogs, and rabbits. Gold finches, cardinals, and chickadees are also common. Wildflowers line the trail in spring, and red raspberry and elderberry bushes provide food for wildlife in Summer.

Hit the trail with your pet! Just remember that dogs must be leashed at all times, and owners must dispose of pet waste.

The Hoover Trail connects to the Middle Branch Trail with a tunnel under Market Avenue and an on-road route using Stone Crossing St. before taking the sidewalk and crossing Easton St. at GlenOak High School.

The Hoover Trail, between Hoover High School and Marquardt Ave., and behind the stadium has been adopted by the William H. Hoover Masonic Lodge. The group sponsors cleanup projects along the trail throughout the year.

Parking is available at Washington Square and the Hoover Community Recreational Complex (East Maple St. ball fields).
