Explore southeastern Stark County in Waynesburg!

A section for hiking and biking travels around the Waynesburg Village Park Loop Trail with a playground, picnic shelter, and basketball court next to the parking area.  It then continues  across Rt. 183  and travels .76 mile on a limestone trail from West St. to Greer St. following an old railroad route.  A parking area is available at Maple St.  Equestrian access begins at Maple St. and heads east over Greer Ave.   Hiking is also permitted on this natural surface portion.  Biking is not permitted east of Greer Ave. at this time.

Dogs welcome! Just remember that dogs must be leashed at all times, and owners must dispose of pet waste properly.  The Sandy Valley Trail has been adopted by Boy Scout Troop 157.  The group sponsors cleanup projects along the trail throughout the year.

The Sandy Valley Trail will eventually serve as a major southeast trail system connecting the communities of East Sparta, Magnolia, Waynesburg, Malvern and Minerva. With Fry Family Park serving as the major trailhead on the west end, the trail will head east along the Sandy Valley, linking to the historic Magnolia Flouring Mills in downtown Magnolia and showcasing scenic vistas.
