Generous support from trail lovers like you helps us build and maintain rail-trails in Wayne County.Grants, memberships, and contributions over the past four years helped us build a trailhead and 1 mile of The Heartland Trail in Orrville and 2.4 miles of trail between Marshallville and Forrer Road in Orrville. This year, we will begin to connect Forrer Road to Orrville.Our previous projects, The Sippo Valley Trail section between Dalton and Stark County, The County Line Trail connecting Rittman, Sterling and Creston, and a short segment of The Holmes County Trail in Fredericksburg,have provided countless hours of recreation for thousands of people of all social, economic and age ranges
