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 past Rice’s Nursery. The trail then loops around Plain Township’s Veterans Community Park, continues north across Schneider Street, and loops around Glenoak High School.
A 1.31 mile on-road connection to the Hoover Trail through Lexington Farms on Easton St uses the sidewalk parallel to Rosedown Boulevard before heading west on Stone Crossing Street, south on Marelis Avenue, and west on Bellview Street to Market Avenue.
