The Trail traverses 18.4 miles of a former Baltimore & Ohio rail corridor from Butler to Mansfield. Key stops along the trail include: North Lake Park in Mansfield; Lexington Community Park; Bellville Train Station; and the Hitchman Park in Butler.

Funding for trail operations and maintenance is provided by the Richland County Commissioners on a year-by-year basis. A majority of trail maintenance activities are provided by volunteers committed to keeping the trail open and usable by walkers, runners and cyclists.
