As you journey through the heart of Ohio, we invite you to step into the frames of the beloved film, The Shawshank Redemption, along the 14 authentic filming locations of The Shawshank Trail. Here, you can trail the footsteps of Andy and Red, soaking in the same surroundings they once did. Embrace the lingering hope that Andy so tactfully spread as you wander the hallowed halls of the legendary Shawshank Prison. Follow the same path that Red trekked in the film.

There, on the roads of Ohio, the magic of the movie comes to life under your feet. You’ve had the joy of being an audience to Andy and Red’s heartwarming camaraderie; now it’s time to mold your own adventure inspired by their shared journey.
