Hike, bike, walk, run, or jog on this 7.7 mile trail connecting neighborhoods and nature from Canton to Plain Township! This mostly limestone trail is reinforced with asphalt in a few spots and follows along the Middle Branch of the Nimishillen Creek.

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

The Middle Branch Trail is maintained by Stark Parks and connects Canton City Parks including Robert E. Schreiber Park, Reifsnyder Park, Oak Park, and Martindale Park. The trail continues north along the railroad tracks then meanders through Gervasi Vineyard and Rice’s Nursery. The trail then loops around Plain Township’s Veterans Community Park, continues north across Schneider St., and loops around GlenOak High School.

An on-road connection to the Hoover Trail through Lexington Farms on Easton St uses the sidewalk parallel to Rosedown Blvd. before heading west on Stone Crossing St. where the trail picks back up before going under Market Ave.
