Richland B&O Trail

Well Maintained

May, 2022 by andybeaire56

We ride this trail several times a week. Sometimes round trip it from Butler to North Lake Park, then back to Butler. Most often we ride from Lexington to Butler and back. After riding trails all over the USA Over many years I came to realize I have a gem right in my own backyard! I live in Mansfield, Ohio.

Richland B&O Trail

Local Trail

May, 2022 by andybeaire56

I’ve been cycling and walking this trail for many years. I cycle this trail many times a week. It’s one of the best maintained trails in the country. I use this trail to prepare for thru hiking and biking trails all over the USA! If your looking for a fun round trip day of fun, this is perfect. Park in Butler, Ohio ride 18 miles to North Lake Park turn around and do 18 back to your car.

Richland B&O Trail

a great ride!

May, 2022 by mxdecapua

The northern trailhead in North Lake Park (Mansfield) would benefit from better signage or markings. We rode around the lake looking for access to the bike trail. A map posted near the picnic pavilion directs you up the ramp, over the bridge and onto the trail.

North Coast Inland Trail (Huron County)

Wakeman has trailheads

May, 2022 by shepdazzle

My husband and I rode an 8 mile section from the trailhead parking lot by the intersection of route 60 and route 20, by the old historic bridge there. The path crosses route 60, which jogs towards Vermilion, and passes a nice pond and small park area with covered benches, a work out station and a portable restroom. Wakeman has a pub, a coffee shop and an East of Chicago Pizza right uptown near the Gazebo at the park for refueling.

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.

Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway

Good, enjoyable route, but signage could be better

October, 2021 by rxkn5jbwk5

I rode a complete round-trip on the bikeway (East 185th & Lakeshore to West 117th & Edgewater) for the first time after wanting to for quite some time. This took me about 3 hours saddle time. The route is well-planned enough, keeping close to the shore of Lake Erie. A mixture of road cycling and trail cycling is required, but bike lanes added on Lakeshore Blvd in recent years in Cleveland make this easier. Signage downtown is poor and the routing there is a bit awkward, but anything west of downtown is quite fun as long as you know to access the path next to the Shoreway beginning at W. 25th.

Enjoyable route, poorly signed at parts, but I expect the Bikeway will probably be improved in the future. Worth riding for the experience.

Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway

very confusing

September, 2021 by holidaytime222

trails not marked well, even the website maps are difficult to follow. City is not overall bike friendly and no real lakefront trail like chicago

Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway

Fun, but confusing trail.

September, 2021 by ejlayden

Started on the west side in Edgewater Park and tried to ride East. When you get to downtown, suddenly the trail markings for this trail get lost. There are numerous other trails crossing with markings, but never did find the continuation. The tow path comes into play as well as some Metropark trails marked Lake Front. Very confusing. Ride hilly in parts. Took the link back in Edgewater to go to Wendy Park on Whiskey island which was a nice addition to put on a few miles. All in all, a good riding asphalt trail and a nice way to get a feel for Cleveland. Would recommend investigating the other trails if you want to get in some mileage. Not crowded on a Tuesday afternoon.

County Line Trail (OH)

what a gem!

September, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

Just beautiful. Smooth asphalt trail in the country with low traffic. I loved the scenery and solitude!

Lester Rail Trail

Nice ride

August, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

I rode this yesterday for the first time. My route was from the end point back to the Lester Trail parking lot. What a great shaded ride! The only problem I encountered was newly placed gravel in the parking lot.

Chippewa Inlet Trail

wide open spaces

August, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

I love the open space on this route. Smooth path and very scenic.

Chippewa Rail-Trail

a local favorite

August, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

The trail is close-by and I enjoy the ride. Lots of trees and relatively smooth trail. A couple of bumps along the way due to root growth.
