The Trout Island Trail Project
This recreational trail will run from Sharpsville to Orangeville along the abandoned Pennsylvania Railroad and Erie Railroad lines. It will be an 8′ wide blacktop surface and will cross two railroad trestles over the Shenango Reservoir. The project will be completed in phases as funding becomes available. A possible future section could also link to Transfer and Greenville.

Created by the Sharpsville Historical Society, some of the sites included are accessed from the Trout Island Trail
The Shenango River Trail Project
The Shenango Trail will run from Greenville on the west side of the Shenango River and follow the abandoned Erie and Pittsburgh Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad north to Jamestown and the Pymatuning State Park area. The trail will be built to the same standards as the Trout Island Trail. Eventually the trail may extend southward on the former railroad grade to connect with the Trout Island Trail, thus linking two of Mercer County’s major recreation areas – Pymatuning and Shenango Lakes.
