Chippewa Inlet Trail

Great for a bike

August, 2017 by isaac420cloud

I love this trail it's all flat and a good challenge on my Strava.

Portage Hike and Bike Trail

Smooth. Chestnut Hill to Fairchild

August, 2017 by jsfarley75

First time on this trail, and it was sweet. Paved, wide, and mostly flat. This is a very easy trail. Follows the river and train tracks through mostly covered woodlands. Some industrial buildings here and there. A few road crossings that had little to no traffic were acceptable. My trip was about 14 round trip. There was a couple trail heads / parking areas that I passed. I like that I can get right into down town Kent as a destination. There's always something there that you can stop to check out while your rest your legs before heading back. Including Kent Cycle. I only wish there was a trail head at both endpoints, but I'm sure this trail will eventually expand. And I can't wait.

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

New to cycling, my initial thoughts of my time on parts of this trail.

August, 2017 by jsfarley75

I'm new to cycling and desired a safe place to ride. Canal Towpath is close to me, so I went.
I've done two sections about 6-9 miles each (one way). First time I was going to start in Peninsula at Lock 29 Trail head. Parking was over crowded there on a Saturday near noon. Avoid Lock 29 as a starting point. Went just south to Deep Lock instead. From there I went about 6 miles southward to Botzam TH. On my second visit, I started at Botzam and went to Lock 3/Canal park Akron. Most of that ride was great. Good trail, nice views and surroundings. Friendly folks in minimal amounts. Saw deer, Geese, snakes, turtles, etc. Only a few street crossings. The not so great part was down near the Mustill Store. Trail had detoured me onto neighborhood roads and a very steep hill for a bit. Got past that, back onto a trail, to then be put back on the road in Downtown Akron. I didn't mind that so much, but had my girlfriend been with me, she would have refused. Arriving at Lock 3 was nice though. There was a Hamburger festival going on with live music and vendors. I stayed for a bit to enjoy, before returning back to Botzam. Overall great experiences on this trail, even with the slight issues around DT Akron and Mustill. I plan on returning to do other more lengthly stretches heading north from Boston soon. I'd like to figure out a way to do the whole thing next season if possible. I recommend this trail do to its over all length. Many places to jump on and do short tours. A couple Bike shops along the way, as well as a couple other points of interest. Restrooms every so often. The Bike Aboard system looks great too. Lots of good stuff about this trail. The good far outweigh any particular bad that you can run into.

Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway

Great Views

July, 2017 by gleime

Rode this trail completely for the first time. Great ride. N Marginal Rd that "Rio" complained abt was replaved in 2016. It was smooth sailing. I rode the trail from Edgewater Park to Euclid Beach. Great views of the lake. You bike pass the Rock Hall, Cleve Browns Stadium etc. The ride across the Detroit Superior Bridge was not intimidating at all.

Mill Stream Run Reservation All Purpose Trail

Good For Locals

July, 2017 by ajw

The trail runs through a park with lots of picnic areas. It is paved, mostly flat, and a mix of shade and open areas. There is a river nearby, but you only see it at a couple spots. It is a good multipurpose park trail for locals, but it is not a destination for trail cyclists because it runs right along Valley Parkway most of the way. So you will have cars next to you. Also, you will need a trail map or GPS because there are several side trails and spurs that can lead you astray.

Portage Hike and Bike Trail

Smooth nice ride

July, 2017 by jemitch804

We just recently discovered this trail and have ridden it 4 times in the past few weeks. Only a few roads to cross with very little traffic. It is a little confusing when you get to the bridge in Kent. A few directional signs in this area would really help but overall a great trail!

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Massillon to Clinton

July, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Canal Fulton and rode north to Center Rd north of Clinton, then turned around and went to Lake Ave north of Massillon. 30mi round trip. Beautiful trail. Crushed stone most of the way, flat and shady. The trail got a little narrower near Massillon. Canal Fulton is a nice little town with lots of ice cream shops. It also has historic boat rides pulled by horses. Timing worked out that we got to watch one go by.

North Olmsted Walking & Bike Trail

Not very well maintained

July, 2017 by lghviking

The trail is cluttered with debris, tree roots have lifted big areas of the asphalt. There was a big tree limb across a fence and trail that I had to get off my bike and walk underneath. The highway was very noisy. I probably would not return to this trail.

Freedom Trail (OH)

Great trail!

June, 2017 by vicki1960

While in the area for the Monroe Falls Triathlon, took advantage of this great little trail.
Runs from Monroe Falls into Akron through Tallmadge.
Nicely asphalt paved, nice and flat. Areas open (full sun) and areas shaded by a canopy of trees. Friendly people along the trail!
Though there is no real parking at East Avenue in Tallmadge, you may find a place to park nearby.
In Tallamage there are several eateries to choose from located just yards off the trail. Sandwich place, a few fast food restaurants, convenience store and a couple of restaurants. Convenience store if you need water, and pharmacy if you forgot your sunscreen.
Restrooms about 1 mile out of Tallmadge at Lion's Park right on the trail. Large parking lot there too. And a water fountain. Pack a picnic lunch and take advantage of Lion's Park.
I rode most of the 6.2 mile trail, and back.

Headwaters Trail

Hike, Bike, and Check out the Towns

June, 2017 by cathycorr6780

Our family uses this trail on a regular basis for both hiking and biking. It is nicely shaded, so offers relief from the hot sun in the summer. The autumn colors are just wonderful. There are several nice views of the river, and a small waterfall along the way. Most of the trial is crushed limestone, and fairly level. (Might be challenging for skinny tires.) There are a few spots that are a bit rough, but nothing that would cause much concern. Midway, there is a short hiking loop off the main trail that takes you in closer to the bog area with an observation platform. The trail is not overly busy, so you can feel quietly connected to nature while out there. It is slightly over 8 miles from Garrettsville to Mantua. There are 3 places to enter the trail; Garrettsville, Rt 700, and Manuta. While in Garrettsville, it is fun to ride a short distance into the town, and enjoy a coffee and snack at the Cellar Door Coffee Shop at the end of Main St, in the old feed store. There is also a Dairy Queen in town which is a favorite stop. Of course, if the library is open, it can provide a great rest stop too. While in Mantua, you might want to plan to enjoy a picnic lunch in the park, or there is a new ice cream shop on Main St, as well as a McDonalds, but don't miss a stop at Jakes Eats. This little restaurant is a village favorite, not far from the trail, on Prospect St and offers a nice variety of items at a reasonable price. If biking or hiking in early to mid July, you might want to plan a stop at Wolff's Blueberry farm. It is located very near the trail at the Rt 700 parking area. This is a You-Pick farm, and might be a great way to end your visit. Going home with a bag of fresh blueberries after a day on the Headwater Trail is a perfect day in my book!
