Hike & Bike Trail

Family Fun in Akron, Ohio

Welcome to Hike & Bike Trail
Serving as a key east-west link between the major trails systems in Northeast Ohio, this trail is a scenic section of the Cuyahoga River. Local Attractions: Brandywine Falls; Cuyahoga Valley National Park; Sharon Conglomerate Rock Walls of the Boston Ledges; Silver Springs Park; Spicy Lamb Farm. Type: Asphalt The 34-mile Bike & Hike Trail was one of the first "rails to trails" conversions in the country. Sections of the Bike & Hike Trail follow the course of two abandoned railroads. Much of the trail follows the Lake Erie & Pittsburgh Railroad (LE&P), which was later named the New York Central Railroad (NYC). Another portion of the trail rests on the old Akron, Bedford & Cleveland Railroad (AB&C, or the "Alphabet Railroad"), which was an electric passenger railway system that was in service from the late 1800s until 1932. Riders on the AB&C railroad could travel for 50 cents from Akron to Cleveland’s Public Square in about 2.5 hours.
