Euclid Creek Reservation All Purpose Trail offers a paved, scenic excursion in the northeastern Ohio community of Euclid, a suburb of Cleveland. The trail is currently divided into two disconnected segments, a 2.75-mile southern section through the Euclid Creek Reservation and a 0.7-mile northern section near Lake Erie.
The southern section, running between Highland Road and East Green Road, is bordered by Euclid Creek Parkway on one side and Euclid Creek on the other. Although travelers will be paralleling a road, the setting is lush and tree canopied for its entire length. An interesting highlight of the route is near its southern end at the Quarry Picnic Area, where you can still see the remains of the bluestone which was once quarried here. The Euclid Creek Reservation is built on the former Village of Bluestone, a ghost town that flourished here in the late 1800s and early 1900s. For more adventuring, the park offers a handful of other trails as well: Glenridge Loop Trail, Upper Highland Loop Trail, Rear Quarry Trail and Squirrel Run Trail.
The northern section of the trail begins just steps from the Lake Erie shoreline in Euclid Beach Park. At Villa Angela Drive, you can cross the bridge to access Wildwood Park, which has a marina and boat ramp. Continuing south, the pathway loops around the Cleveland Public Library before ending at Lakeshore Boulevard. For a longer journey, trail users can hop on the 17-mile Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway.
For the southern section of the trail, parking is available within the Euclid Creek Reservation in the Highland Picnic Area, Upper Highland Picnic Area, Welsh Woods Picnic Area and Rear Quarry Picnic Area.
For the northern section of the trail, parking is available off Wildwood Drive, just north of Lakeshore Boulevard and in Wildwood Park.
