North Coast Inland Trail (Lorain County)

Day 2-Northeastern End

July, 2024 by vicki1960

We parked at mile marker 9, Bur Oak Trailhead and biked to mile 0.0 at Lakeside Landing in Lorain, on the shores of Lake Erie. This section is not a traditional rail-trail as it has hills and ramps and quite a few bridges which cross the Black River multiple times. In 9 miles we passed a few trailheads with parking and facilities. From mile marker 9 to 2, you're on a paved trail then the last 2 miles into Lorain are share the road sections. Worth the trip! Biking to Lake Erie from Elyria was very fun. While in the area we stated in nearby Vermilion.

North Coast Inland Trail (Lorain County)

Day 1 (Western end)

July, 2024 by vicki1960

Trail is flat and paved, goes through mainly open areas of farmlands, a few short wooded sections offering shade. Old rail towns such as Kipton and Oberlin. One short share the road section, well marked. Several (back) road crossings with trailheads and parking. We rode from West Elyria to Huron Co line and continued into Wakeman. Round trip was 30 miles. Great trail! We stayed in Vermilion and went to the lighthouse on Lake Erie.

North Coast Inland Trail (Huron County)

Lots to Like

June, 2024 by traillink user

First time on this trail. Serene. Tree canopied sections. Beautiful farmland views. Great stop over the Huron River. Nice depot stop in Monroeville. Wasn’t fond of the ride into Norwalk but it wasn’t horrible. I also wasn’t sure how I was going to like the crushed limestone surface but I really enjoyed the varied surface of the trail. Some of it was fairly smooth rolling. Some required constant pedaling due to a more depth of the stone, which I did not mind because I ride for exercise. Some of the trail was a bit rougher with some actual gravel spots but kept it interesting. Attention is wise anytime someone rides but this trail should be noted the shoulders aren’t always squared. They’re are sections they do slope quite a bit which can out you off the sideif yours not watching.

Brookside Reservation All Purpose Trail

Provides Access to Athletic Fields and the Cleveland Zoo

June, 2024 by orangedoug

Brookside Reservation is a Cleveland Metropark that contains a number of athletic fields and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. TrailLink.com lists the length of the Brookside Reservation All-Purpose Trail as 2.3 miles in length but I rode almost 9 miles that included out and backs on several spurs that connect to local Cleveland, Ohio neighborhoods of Brookside, Old Brooklyn, and Brooklyn Center. I was baffled by a previous review of this trail that stated "small elevation gains." There are several taxing climbs on this trail as the zoo and the park itself are located at the bottom of the narrow Big Creek Valley. When I rode this trail I parked at the baseball fields found at the Jim Thome All-Star Complex in the center of the park. This area of the park is in the Big Creek Valley. The surrounding neighborhoods are located atop of the valley walls so almost any direction you ride on this trail involves climbing. I rode west out of the Jim Thome Complex toward the park’s Ridge Road entrance. This part of the trail parallels the park’s main road, John Nagy Blvd. About halfway to the Ridge Road entrance the trail splits and you get the option to climb out of the valley and up to the residences of Cleveland’s Brookside neighborhood. This is the most manageable climb out of the valley the park has. The climbs along Wildlife Way near the zoo and the climb up to Denison Avenue from the historic Brookside Stadium site are more difficult. Kids definitely would be walking their bikes up these climbs.

Most of the trail in the valley is wide open with very little shade because of the athletic fields and parking lots located there. The prettiest part of the trail is along Park Drive; it is tree covered and includes an overlook loop that offers views of the baseball fields. Take advantage of the crossing over the Fulton Road Bridge which provides views of the Cleveland Zoo’s Tiger Passage and Wolf Lodge areas. The trail while it provides access to the zoo does not actually pass through the zoo.

Brighton Park All Purpose Trail

A Key Link Between the Cleveland Zoo and the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

June, 2024 by orangedoug

The Brighton Park All-Purpose Trail is the middle section of a route that provides a connection between the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo found in the Cleveland Metropark's Brookside Reservation. It is a short, .4 mile trail that runs through a 25 acre park that once was a construction and industrial dump site. The Western Reserve Land Conservancy acquired the property in 2015 and the site remediation was completed by 2017. In 2021 ecological restoration and park improvements, including a new all purpose trail and natural surface trails, was completed by the Cleveland Metroparks and conservation-minded community members. The western end of the trail connects to the Brookside Reservation All-Purpose Trail which is located at the Zoo’s entrance located across Pearl Road. On the eastern end, some on-street riding on low-trafficked residential streets is needed to reach Harmody Park. In Harmody Park, you can connect to the Treadway Creek Trail which drops into the Cuyahoga River Valley and an additional connection to the cross-state Ohio to Erie Trail (Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail section).

The Brighton Park All-Purpose Trail is in excellent condition owing to its recent construction. It is a very flat trail in contrast to the two trails located at either of its ends. The prairie grass-covered park itself stands atop of the valley wall of the Big Creek Valley. It includes an overlook that looks down upon Big Creek and also allows some views of the industrial mills located in the Cuyahoga River Valley. My one complaint with this trail is that the Cleveland Metroparks has not yet added signs for the on-street route required to connect to the Treadway Creek Trail in nearby Harmody Park.

Treadway Creek Trail

A Nice Descent Into the Cuyahoga Valley

June, 2024 by orangedoug

The Treadway Creek Trail is the easternmost of a series of short trails that connect the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. You must ride about a quarter of a mile south on Jennings Road from the Towpath (at the corner of Jennings Rd & Harvard Ave.) to reach the trail's start on Crestline Ave. From there you will climb about 80 feet in elevation over the next half mile to the trail's end in Harmody Park. As mentioned by another TrailLink reviewer, at some point, "Kids will likely walk bikes up."

This is a nice little trail. It runs up a ravine to reach the top of the valley wall. The trail is shaded and lush with foliage. So much so, that you are completely unaware of the homes that surround the upper half of the trail until you actually reach Harmody Park. My biggest complaint is that the on-street connection needed to reach the Brighton Park All-Purpose Trail and the way to the Cleveland Metropark Zoo is not marked with signs. If I had not had the TrailLink app I would not have been able to figure out how to find my way to the zoo.

Treadway Creek Trail

Nice but.........

May, 2024 by mjdolsen

This trail needs some much-needed maintenance, fallen tree across the path 5/15/24 as well as numerous branches overhanging at head level ready to take out any unaware biker or hiker.... come on Cleveland City Services you need to do better......

Freedom Trail (OH)

nice and VERY easy

May, 2024 by reichertcory

Mostly flat ride. Some sketchy areas, but nothing awful. Links fairly easily to other trails to put in more distance.

Morgana Run Trail

A hidden gem!

April, 2024 by chrismentrek

This is a great biking path! Artwork and sculpture along the way, and a picnic area near 71st and Union.
Makes a great clockwise-loop when combined with the Towpath Trail / Washington Reservation All Purpose Trail / Mill Creek Connector Trail.
(Crossing Broadway is a bit harrowing, but the new pedestrian-crossing measures make it easy on the sidewalk.)

South Chagrin Reservation All Purpose Trail

super hilly

March, 2024 by nfbeck15

Unless you love climbing steep hills for half the ride then this trail isn’t an enjoyable one unless used for training

Ohio to Erie Trail

We did a 8.45 mi round trip between Harvard Rd and Warren Rd overhead bridge. Being in a wheelchair we had no issues whatsoever with the surface of the trail.

North Coast Inland Trail (Sandusky and Ottawa Counties)

Fremont to Bellevue

October, 2023 by vicki1960

Fremont to Bellevue section. Trail is flat and paved in good condition. Biked to Bellevue to lunch and back for a 25 mile round trip. Not much shade, goes through mostly farmlands. In the 12 miles from Fremont to Bellevue, 21 road crossings! Most of them there wasn't much traffic but you still had to stop, once you got going. In the past biked from Elmore to Fremont, found it to be more scenic.
