Mountain Run Station

By youker in May, 2013

Great day and great trail. The Mountain Run Station trail head in Chardon is just 100 yards east of the Mel Harder Baseball Park on Chardon Windsor Road. Youker

Great ride!

Maple Highlands Trail is a great ride. I love the section from Rt 44 to Headwaters Park. Trail users (bicycle and pedestrians) are very respectful of each other. The trail is well kept and the scenery is great. It’s a nice 17.5-mile ride (round trip) and stopping off at the lake at the end of or in the middle or the ride (depending where you start off) provides a very beautiful and relaxing place to have a snack and a drink of water. Highly recommend a visit.

Perfect afternoon ride

Ended up with a couple hours on a warm afternoon - jumped on the trail - good amount of sun and shade - flat and well kept - covered bridges are a nice touch

One of the best trails in Ohio!!!

The portion of the trail from Mountain Run Station to Headwaters Park is great. Well maintained, small hills, a few road crossings. I ride this trail about 3 times a week. Here's a hint: for some off-road fun, head east down 322 (Mayfield Rd) to till you hit the North entrance of the park. It's a great packed gravel ride down to the lake with lots of hills, I can get up to 30mph on a mountain bike going down some of the hills.

Maple Highlands Trail - AWESOME!!!

The Maple Highlands Trail is very well maintained. Paved the entire length with 3 beautiful small covered bridges. We especially like the section from Mountain Run Station to Headwaters Park. Some nice railroad history signs at Mountain Run. A few small hills at some road crossings. Slight uphill climb heading North into Chardon. Great trail and we recommend it to everyone.

Gen of a trail

It should be noted that the north section ends where a Lake County trail to the north continues for a ways to GIrdled Road (then there is a break where cyclists have to go on the road to connect with the remainder of the trail in Lake County).

The section of trail southeast of Chardon toward Middlefield is a lovely section of paved trail, passing though three covered bridges (new--constructed as part of the bike path). It is fairly level, though there is a mild grade back into Chardon. This trail is a real gem, passing through quiet wooded and marshy areas. I've seen deer and wild turkeys, along with the usual human traffic of cyclists, walkers, in-line skaters, parents with strollers, and occasionally local cross-country teams! That makes it sound busy, but depending on the time of day it can be a very peaceful, quiet ride.
