MetroParks Bikeway

Almost a 5

September, 2020 by gleesue

Nice trail that we will ride again. Couldn't quite give a 5 though. The cracks in the asphalt are in need of repair and a bit annoying. Also, a few too many road crossings than I would like. One other thing that would be nice to see is some picnic tables for resting along the way. The only nice rest area is at the bike shop at Kirk Road.

Stavich Bicycle Trail

PA Side > OH Side

September, 2020 by mkimous

As others have described the PA side of this trail is fairly well maintained. There are a couple bad spots that are marked so you can avoid them as of September 2020. I crossed into Ohio and immediately had to turn around because the pavement was ridiculous. The trail has a few gradual inclines, if you park at the New Castle lot you will have that last little workout as its a gradual uphill to the parking lot.

Bike and Hike Trail

Trail has grade to it and is not flat

September, 2020 by vicki1960

This trail is not completely flat. It has some grade and hills at the road crossings and also there are many flat sections.
We parked at Boston Mills and biked to the Bedford Reservation and back. Enjoyable ride. We stopped at Brandywine falls. Make sure you have water because the only place to get it is near Brandywine Falls at Brandywine Falls Oasis cart set up in someones front yard that is self serve. It sure does come in handy, bring one dollar bills!

Bedford Reservation All Purpose Trail

Hilly and wooded

September, 2020 by vicki1960

We came onto this trail at Alexander Road from the Bike & Hike trail. This trail goes through the wooded area of the Reservation. Some sections are also on the road or next to the road. It is very hilly in some sections. We passed Bridal Veil falls but did not stop. We biked about 5 miles and turned around and headed back to Bike & Hike trail. There are no nearby trail services. Make sure you have water.

Allegheny River Trail

Beautiful trail

September, 2020 by krista02121

We rode out of Emlenton, where you can only ride north. We did a total of 24.5 miles, out and back. The trail blacktop was buckled in areas, it was worse coming back. Otherwise, it was a gorgeous ride. Heed the warnings about a flashlight. The tunnels were around miles 7 and 12.25 going north from Emlenton. You can’t see anything in the tunnels without light.

Butler-Freeport Community Trail

Nice enjoyable ride, saw lots of nature

September, 2020 by robinrosenberger25

Started at Freeport and rode 7 miles and back. Slight uphill the way out, but not too difficult. Parking lots were full at every stop we passed, but the trail was never crowded. Enjoyed the shaded and wide trail. Spotted 2 deer chasing each other across the creek and 2 Great Blue Heron fishing for their lunch. We will return to complete the trail soon.

Maple Highlands Trail

Worth the drive

September, 2020 by timmy0728

While working in Mentor, found this trail thanks to TrailLink
Took about 1/2 hour to get to but worth it.
Parked at the Tara Creek Parkway. Ran north towards Chardon. Ran 3.5 up, then ran back down to Middlefield.
Trail is very nice.
Paved. Level. Only a couple small grade hills, mostly while going over the covered bridges, which are great.
The trail is marked every half mile on the benches along the trail.
Mostly wooded/shade. Mostly bikers on trail and everyone of them notified me that they were passing. Everyone!
If in the area, and looking to get a couple miles in, head down here.
Enjoy seeing all the Amish buggies and the trail as well.

Moraine State Park Bike Trail

Winding with small hills

September, 2020 by vicki1960

This 7 mile trail is very technical. Out and back, winding and uphill both ways. A great workout for sure.
Trail follows along the lake. Picnic areas and restrooms along the trail. Most of it is shaded traveling though the woods.
You have to really pay attention on this one as this trail is very well used by all out enjoying it. You may be cruising along then come to a quick turn to discover people out in the middle around the bend. So if you're out there going for speed, this is not the trail. If you're out for a leisurely ride, this is the right trail.
There is a bike rental at the trail head, call ahead for hours. Open most days throughout the summer and shortened hours off season. However if the weather is nice and people are looking to rent, they will be open.

Butler-Freeport Community Trail

Uphill both ways, bring your own water!

September, 2020 by vicki1960

Gravel trail in multiple widths. Sometimes just a few feet wide and hope no one is coming the other way and other times very wide like a 2-lane highway.
High point on the trail is midway. Not exactly sure but I am guessing Cabot.
There is no water along the trail. No where to get water close to the trail. So be prepared.
Trail is 20+ miles and runs from Butler to Freeport. The name of the trail! Maybe a few blocks from the trail in Butler there is a convenience store to get water if needed. But along the trail, NOTHING!
However there is a bike shop along the trail near Bonniebrook that sells water but they are only open a few hours on the weekend (s).
Parked at Bonniebrook and biked downhill to Butler then uphill back. This was a 9 mile round trip. Then we biked the other direction towards Freeport.
It was hot (90 degrees) and we ran out off water. Next time we take extra.
All in all a great trail to ride on. We usually frequent this one one or two times a year traveling about an hour to get to.

Bruce G. Rinker Greenway

Great for Inline Skating

There’s a few hills but not too bad! Really flat and smooth.

Sandy Creek Trail

Very Nice Trail

September, 2020 by jackybob

On 09/05/20 we rode this trail from end to end and it definitely lived up to expectations. There are several high bridges along the way which provide for some really nice views. I imagine that in a month or so when the leaves are showing their colors the views will be spectacular.
