Nature Knowledge: Q1 Answer

Lake County’s Greenway Trail was originally:
A. Electricity utility corridor                                               B. Right-of-way for a coal slurry pipeline
C. Branch of the B&O railroad called the P&W         D. One thousand yr. old Native American pathway

Original tracks linking the nation’s rail system to Lake Erie were laid in Lake County in 1870 and acquired by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in the 1890s. The railroad provided freight service in and out of Painesville, moving some five million tons of coal and iron ore annually. NatureVation loves this ride which gets longer every year as new segments are added, particularly Geagua’s Maple Highland Trail, connecting into Amish Country. Learn more about this rail line HERE
