Maple Highlands Trail

Dedicated trail now goes through Chardon. Looks like it opened very recently. A great addition to an all-around terrific trail. Among the best ib NE Ohio.

Headwaters Trail

Nice trail

October, 2020 by bpatch

Very nice trail. 15 miles round trip. We started in Garrettsville and rode toward Mantua. Beautiful, especially in the fall with all the leaves falling. The trail is primarily flat; however, there is the slightest uphill grade going toward Mantua. Parking easy to find and both towns at each end of trail are very quaint. I would definitely recommend this trail to all levels of bike riders, along with families with small kids.

Maple Highlands Trail

Not your average rails-to-trails trail

October, 2020 by bpatch

Great trail. We broke this trail up into three sections. Did the south section a few years ago. Completed the central section in September. We parked at Headwaters Park to start. Along this section of the trail is a nice little rope course along with a small walking trail around a pond. There is a building with very nice bathrooms accessible. There are a few hills, but nothing extreme. We completed the north section in October. This section has the potential to continue on through a busy town but at the time we rode, part of the trail was still under construction. This portion of the trail does have some larger hills. The entire trail is very well maintained and travels through some beautiful areas.

Great Trail

October, 2020 by eric.janssen.315

We rode 30 miles of this trail in the last month. Trail was awesome. Was surprised that there were NO restroom facilities on the Trumbull County section of the trail. Each trailhead in Ashtabula County had a Port-o-let. I did not like the 16 speed bumps on the trail just south of the Oakfield trailhead. We rode the trail south into Rock Creek, but when we started taking the road section around the missing link, vehicles were speeding past us. We decided to turn around and go back to the north. Overall I give the trail the 5 star rating.

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Fall Foliage Ride

October, 2020 by vicki1960

Thursday, October 15, 2020: Fall foliage is peak in Mercer County. It came early this year and is absolutely beautiful.
Enjoyable ride around the lake on the trail. Some areas were very coveredd with leaves other areas the wind had blown the leaves off into the woods.
Trail is mostly through wooded area.

October Hike

Hiked the southern part of the trail today. Saw deer and an Eagle who was flying just ahead of us today. This is definitely a trail we want to hike again

Awesome Trail Ride from Covered Bridge to Big Bend

September, 2020 by vortechx_tl

10/26/2020. Very scenic views and a nice ride with moderate obstacles.

Nice, flat and scenic trail

September, 2020 by bpatch

We completed another 10 miles of this trail. Beautiful day! This time we started at the trailhead in Orwell. Love this trail. Very well maintained throughout. Mostly flat, however, this is one of those trails that you will pedal no matter which direction you head but nothing intense. Just a great ride.

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Great trail

September, 2020 by bpatch

We have done this trail many times over the years. We love that it is a challenging loop trail. Many rolling hills and a few steep ones too. Shady for the most part depending on the time of the year. Trail well maintained.

Pymatuning State Park Spillway Trail

Short but sweet

September, 2020 by bpatch

Trail could certainly use some help. Mostly grass with some sections where there is a little gravel. Very bumpy. We started at the Spillway which for the most part is dead center of the trail. Nothing is marked as to beginning or end; just kind of stops at both ends. If you're looking for short and flat, but rough, this is the trail for you.
