Invest In the Connectivity! “Wayne Trails Fund” open for donations at Wayne County Community Foundation. 

Wayne County communities have worked hard to successfully build trails that offer opportunities for recreation, exploration, health, and alternative transportation.

Our leading partner Rails-to-Trails-of-Wayne-County has created the Sippo Valley Trail connecting Dalton and Massilon, the County Line Trail connecting Creston and Rittman, along with the Fredericksburg Trailhead leading through Holmes County. Today, Rails to Trails of Wayne County is hard at work building the Heartland Trail, connecting Orrville and Marshallville.

The City of Wooster is nearing completion of its newest trail addition, connecting its north end to Downtown Wooster. The project is part of a 12-mile trail loop connecting the neighborhoods and most popular destinations of Wayne County’s largest city. A second phase is scheduled to begin construction later this year.

Wayne Trails is focused on finding opportunities to connect all Wanye County communities together.


Our most recent effort is a connection from the City of Wooster to Fredericksburg. Bicyclists wanting to connect to Wooster from the Ohio to Erie Trail (linking Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland) will have a new signed route available in 2019. In partnership with the Wayne County Engineer’s Office, Wayne Trails will memorialize a safer connection to the trail. Starting from the Wooster Seacrest Bike Path at the Secrest Arboretum, the on-road route will follow along Secrest Road to Oil City Road, Messner Road, Fredericksburg Road, Buss Road, Honeytown Road, Graber Foard, Carr Road, and Henry Street into the heart of Fredericksburg.

Wayne Trail’s long-term goal is to help assist in coordinating and helping to fund a dedicated off-road trail.

We are especially thankful for all of the support we have received so far from our local communities, organizations, businesses, and governments. Please stay bookmark us and check back soon for updates!
