Chippewa Inlet Trail Description

The Chippewa Inlet Trail runs for nearly 4 miles between Lafayette Road/State Route 42 and the Chippewa Nature Area. The trail traverses an open, pastoral landscape along the Chippewa Inlet, which provides habitat for many bird species. Some of the birds you might see include American avocets, sandhill cranes, bitterns and bald eagles.

Just north of Wedgewood Road/State Route 162, the Chippewa Inlet Trail passes through Buckeye Woods Park, the largest park in the Medina County Parks system.

Parking and Trail Access

Ample parking is found at Buckeye Woods Park, on State Route 162 in Lafayette Township, 0.5 mile east of State Route 42. You can also park at a lot off County Highway 50/Chippewa Road just west of Lee Lore Lane.

Chippewa Inlet Trail Reviews

The Chippewa Trail is a hidden gem. I typically park in Chippewa and run the full 2.5, turn around and run back. I'll maybe see 2-3 people tops while I'm out there. It's perfect for running, biking, or walking. My dog LOVES it. The Medina County Parks knock it out of the park. This trail is nicely maintained and super clean. Love it.

Chippewa inlet trail is fairly flat. Deer and may species of birds are in the area. The trail runs from Chippewa road to Buckeye woods park, where it continues north and circles around a wetland area, making the trail much longer than stated. If planned, you could enjoy a picnic in the park, watch a soccer game, or go on a nature walking trail just off the bike trail.
