The Wabash Cannonball Trail is a 63-mile non-motorized, multi-use trail traversing four counties. Ownership is divided among six separate entities:

- Toledo Metroparks
- Lucas County
- Maumee
- Whitehouse
- Wauseon
- Northwestern Ohio Rails-to-Trails Association, Inc. (NORTA)

The trail is comprised of two former rail lines, originally established by the Wabash Railroad, that converge in Maumee near Jerome Road. The North Fork of the trail runs in an east-west direction, 46 miles from Maumee to within 12 miles of the Indiana state line near Montpelier, Ohio. The South Fork takes a southwesterly route from Maumee to the edge of Liberty Center, Ohio for a length of 17 miles.

Notable points of interest along or nearby the Wabash Cannonball Trail include: Fallen Timbers State Memorial and Monument, Goll Woods State Nature Preserve, Sauder Farm and Craft Village, Maumee State Forest, Oak Openings Metropark, Side Cut Metropark, Williams County Historical Museum, Fraker Mill Covered Bridge, and several local parks.
