Shenango Trail

Shenango Trail May 9, 2022

May, 2022 by joseph_torok

Hiked from Kidd's Mill trailhead 3.25 miles south to the beaver pond. Trail is very dry despite recent rains. Spring wildflowers are everywhere! Weeds not a problem yet. Be aware ticks are present especially if you stray into the brush. Several hikers and dogs on trail. Evidence of horses on Kidd's Mill section very unusual!

Pymatuning State Park Spillway Trail

Nice Walk

Nice walk on black top surface. South end is more scenic along the creek, but got some great pics north side of the spillway trail of some bald eagles patrolling the lake and lily pads.

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

NICE BIKING

April, 2022 by ethel.nelson.16

Had a beautiful sunny day April 29, 2022 to ride the loop around the lake. Nicely maintained with various areas to stop for a rest or snacks! Rolling hills & curves so pay attention to negotiating biking ability! Lovely day for me!

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Wonderful Bike Trail!

April, 2022 by ethel.nelson.16

It was a beautiful sunny day for April 29, 2022 & the multi use trail is delightful. I really enjoyed biking around the edge of the water, seeing chipmunks, a woodchuck & a big bird way up in the tree. Some fishermen were enjoying the day too! Stopped & purchased a Passport book at the office to motivate me to get out to more PA State Parks! Go & enjoy this bike trail- take some snacks & rest along the way!

Shenango Trail Access April 28, 2022

March, 2022 by joseph_torok

Big Bend trail access has been difficult due to recent high water and the removal of the swinging cable bridge. A new trail access point has been developed on Pew Road. A map and directions is posted at the trailhead. The trail is marked with yellow blazes. The new trail rejoins the bypass trail and main trail after approximately 500 yards.

Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway

Beautiful parks and neighborhoods on the eastern end of the trail

March, 2022 by bikeridesandbreweries

While our plan was to bike the Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway, we got a bit diverted by a narrow strip of land called Rockefeller Park, located just beyond the sprawling campus of the Cleveland Clinic. We rode through the park on the Harris Dillard Trail, which goes mostly downhill for about 3.7 miles to Lake Erie. Riding through this beautifully landscaped oasis was a nice surprise amidst otherwise urban, commercial neighborhoods.
Once we reached the actual Waterfront Trail, we decided to turn right and east toward the charming hamlet of Bratenahl. Here we rode on a broad, but quiet, street past several great gated estates, likely dating back to the early 20th century. Visible beyond each house and its beautifully manicured grounds was the vast expanse of Lake Erie. After a few miles, the neighborhood and woods ended and we entered Euclid, a community of smaller, post-WWII homes, strip shopping centers, and one large hi-rise housing development.
We persisted along this busier on-road portion of the trail to the Euclid MetroPark, where ample signage pointed us to a winding trail through the park to a marina. Here we were rewarded with striking views of Lake Erie and the skyline of Cleveland in the distance. Determined to find the eastern trailhead, we continued past the marina and through a small nature preserve which promoted the return of a coyote habitat. The Waterfront Trail at this end was a combination of sidewalks, a paved path, roads, and shoulders with painted lanes.
We didn’t venture toward downtown, but the drive we’d taken to scope it out the night before suggested that there would be much weaving through road traffic and industrial sections of town.
We drove afterwards to a nationally known brewery in one of the city's hip downtown neighborhoods.

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Winter Walk

February, 2022 by vicki1960

February, 2022. Winter walk along the trail. Great trail for walking, cross country skiing or even fat bike tire riding.

Shenango Trail

Big Bend access, can't get in

February, 2022 by vicki1960

If you park at the Big Bend trailhead, mile 0, be prepared to only go about 1/2 mile roundtrip. The Swinging bridge is completely gone. There is a detour nearby via crossing the creek but it's too wide and the step from the bank is too high. Though some have crossed it, I was unable on two separate occasions, but still nice to see the snow.

Shenango Trail

Shenango Trail 1/17-31/2022

February, 2022 by joseph_torok

Great snow hiking on the Shenango Trail! Snowpack depth at least 12 inches from recent storms. Encountered a few hardy hikers the last few weeks. Evidence of wildlife including deer, otter, raccoon, squirrel and many bird species can be seen the entire 8.75 miles of the trail. Bald Eagles and heron observed on river banks or roosting.

Trout Island Trail

Snowshoeing!

January, 2022 by vicki1960

With all the recent snow, we've got about a foot on the ground, makes the trail great for snowshoeing. Also did see some Cross Country ski tracks.
