Chippewa Rail-Trail Description

The Chippewa Rail Trail runs for 2.4 miles between Chippewa Road (SR 50) in Chippewa Lake to suburban Wycliffe Drive southwest of Medina (Lafayette Township). The trail is mostly rural in feel, passing among woodlands, farmland and open space. It also borders a large golf course. The grade is level but does descend slightly from north to south.

The rail-trail follows a corridor once used by the old B&O Railroad, which ran a main line from the Lester Junction through Medina to Chippewa Lake. The rail once shipped ice harvested from the lake to nearby towns and cities.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the south side of Chippewa Road just west of Township Hwy 709. Please note that there is no parking at the north end of the trail.

Chippewa Rail-Trail Reviews

Although this trail is listed as an inline skate trail, it is mixed with tar/stone composition.. this means it is not smooth as a tar only trail would be, but it is skatable.. there are two roads that cross the trail as well.... it is a nice skate, but be careful of a few sticks and a few stones along the way..
