The City of Wyoming has plans to extend the Hike/Bike Trail in 2023 after being awarded a grant from the Clean Ohio Trails Fund in the amount of $412,500.  The trail will extend from its current terminus at the entrance of Oak Park continuing south on Oak Avenue, cutting diagonally across the vacant lot (David Savage Way and Oak Avenue) to the south of the municipal building, and then continuing along Van Roberts Place, crossing over Wentworth Avenue, and ultimately ending at the junction of Van Roberts Place and Wyoming Avenue at the existing public parking lot.  The city plans to install a bicycle rack and benches.

The trail runs near the West Fork Mill Creek but does not have any direct impacts to the streams or stream bank as its course will run along existing sidewalk pathways.  The trail extension is approximately .4 miles and will connect the current Hike/Bike Trail to the Wyoming Business District on Wyoming Avenue.  There will be some trees/bushes that will need to be removed along existing sidewalks, but any removed vegetation will have plans to be replanted.
