South of Ashtabula, the Western Reserve Greenway is an extensive multi-use trail system along an old railroad grade. During the winter, the 27 mile Greenway is used by snowmobiliers.
The Western Reserve Greenway is the former PennCentral right-of-way which was closed in April, 1976. The line at one time was also known as the USRA 714 rail line. The right-of-way, which served industry then, is now set to help serve the recreational needs of Ashtabula County.
To reach the best snowmobiling parking area for the Western Reserve Greenway from US90, use Exit #223 for SR45. Head south on SR45 for 3 miles. There will be a small cemetary on the left. Turn left down that road and the parking area is about a mile down on the right.
Note: For snowmobiling, all snowmobiles must have an Ohio registration sticker displayed in plain sight on the vehicle.
Overall, Western Reserve Greenway is the 3rd most popular snowmobile trail of all 5 snowmobiling rides in Ohio.
