Get your exercise and some fresh air on this suburban 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.
A connection to the Middle Branch Trail crosses Market Avenue from Washington Square, heads east on Bellview St., north on Marelis Ave., then east on 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., 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).
