About Mahoning Valley Trail
This trail begins at Deer Creek Reservoir (14514 Price Street Northeast, Alliance, Ohio 44641) west of OH-225 and continues to Gaskill Drive. Parking lot just north of Earley Hill Park. The route includes 260-foot free span bridge over Deer Creek, 100-foot boardwalk under OH-225, and an on-road section using Greenbower Street and Rockhill Avenue. Future plans will move the trail off the road and south to the City of Alliance.
This scenic trail offers fishing access to the Mahoning River and a great view of a bottomland hardwood forest. Spring flowers are abundant along the trail and include jack in the pulpit, false Solomon’s seal, and swamp buttercup.
The Mahoning Valley Trail has been adopted by the Rotary Club of Alliance, the club sponsors cleanup projects along the trail throughout the year.
