Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Enjoyed this part of Ohio

October, 2021 by creischl

We started in Independence, where there is a big parking lot and decent restrooms, and rode to Peninsula, where there are restaurants and a bike shop, and returned--about 23 - 24 miles. Found that the surroundings became more lush and wooded the closer we got to Peninsula. Next time, we'll start there and go south or ride on a day when we could take the train one way and do the whole trail. Signs indicated the train runs Wed. - Sunday, May - October. (We rode on a Tuesday.) The trail surface varies--a combo of asphalt, well-packed or uneven gravel, or hard-packed dirt. At this time of year (Oct) there were a considerable number of walnuts on the trail to navigate through, too. We did this trail as a break in a long car trip and it was worth it. Saw some amazing herons along the way!

Headwaters Trail

Not a 5 star trail

October, 2021 by davidmaggiehome

With all the beautiful trails nearby, this one should be last on your bike trails. Not much to see, most mile markers are missing. The park at the east end road is in poor condition. I recommended finding a better trail to ride.

This trail is divided into 3 sections: Central, North and South. Central and South have been connected and now the 1.5 mile connector though Chardon to the North section is completed. You can ride 20 miles and remain on the trail the entire time. New trailhead on Park Avenue in Chardon has restrooms, parking and picnic area.
Parked at Headwaters Park and biked North including thru Chardon to where the trail ends at Girdled Road.
There is also a parking lot at the Big Creek Park spur.
Hilly section is the North section which follows Route 44.
Great ride from Headwaters to Girdled Road, 30 mile round trip.

Little Beaver Creek Greenway Trail

9/11 Ride

September, 2021 by vicki1960

Parked in Lisbon at mile 0 and biked up to Washingtonville (mile 12.5) and back. Always a great ride. There are sometimes while pedaling you are going up hill, in both directions. Trail follows Little Beaver Creek. Most of the trail is shaded but there are some open areas through farms. Mile 5 is Teagarden covered bridge, just off the trail. Mile 11.25 is the Cherry Coke Ovens. This trail is asphalt paved in good conditions with a few bumpy spots. Between miles 10 and 11 in Leetonia you ride on the streets. Follow signs.

Western Reserve Greenway

Another nice ride

September, 2021 by vicki1960

Labor Day 2021: Parked in North Bloomfield along Route 87. There is a small parking area there for about 10 cars. Biked down to Sunside Trailhead approx 11 miles South and back then up to Orwell and back for a 31 mile round trip.
Some leaves are beginning to change already and some dry dead leaves on the trail.
Most of the trail is shaded by trees but there are a few areas open farmlands.

Bike and Hike Trail

Northern route is excellent; the loop, not so much

September, 2021 by bkbj4dkd2r

I did this trail in two sections. The loop from 303 down through Stow/Kent and back up was definitely not flat. Also crossed and road along a lot of roads. The residential section was nice, but it was difficult to see the bike trail signs at times so I got off course more than once. The northern section from Alexander down to 303 is fantastic. While you do cross a few roads, they’re not as busy as the ones in the loop. I would suggest walking your bike across them – The roads are slightly elevated with limited visibility before you reach them. The scenery is hard to beat – lots of gorgeous rock formations and you even go across the top of Brandywine Falls.

Sippo Valley Trail

rough pavement, smooth gravel

September, 2021 by tandemspeaks

Beautiful mostly shaded trail between Dalton and Massillon. Three miles in the middle of 10 mile trail is gravel (not paved). The paved sections at each end are in rough shape. Lots of roots, bumps and rough bridge entrances/exits as well as a trench right after first bridge coming from Dalton - watch out! The gravel section was smooth and easy to ride on our trek gravel bikes.

Bike and Hike Trail

Northern section better than the south

September, 2021 by bkbj4dkd2r

I did the southern loop from 303 down around Stow Kent and back up to 303. Way more hills than I expected but was most disconcerting was the number of busy intersections and travel on roads. I will not do this loop again. The northern section from Alexander to 303 is fantastic. You cross a few roads - safest to stop and walk bike on them to to steep incline at intersection and somewhat limited visibility. The scenery is fantastic - you pass over Brandywine Falls and there are beautiful rock formations in a wooded area just north of 303. Rolling inclines rather than steep hills. Will do this section Again.

MetroParks Bikeway

Nice ride thru the countryside

September, 2021 by ejlayden

Started our ride at the Kirk Rd. Parking area. Ended up that the south end was being paved so had to head north. Added on the Niles Greenway, so did get almost 18 miles in. Surface good, some bumps in the pavement, and 2 climbs that were manageable. Nice casual scenic country road ride.

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Lovely historic ride thru a National Park

September, 2021 by ejlayden

Started the tow path in Independence, OH and rode to Peninsula. Had to back track to our parked car - so would recommend planning to take the train at Independence and then ride the whole trail from the Akron end.
Good riding surface of packed limestone - even for riders like us who prefer paved. Fun lunch stop in Peninsula. Not often you can ride 20+ miles in a National Park.

MetroParks Bikeway

End of August 2021 Ride

September, 2021 by vicki1960

Parked at Kirk road (mile 5) and biked to the end (mile 10.8) and back. The Canfield Fair was getting ready, all set up to begin the next day. Stopped at the Metroparks Farm, across from the Fairgrounds. The sunflower field was absolutely beautiful!
Most of the trail is open as regards to shade but it wasn't a very hot day.
Trail passes near some residential areas as well as commercial business areas.
Biked to Mile 0 at the County line and a little bit on the Niles Greenway Trail.
