Garfield Park Reservation All Purpose Trail Description

The Garfield Park Reservation All Purpose Trail is located in Garfield Heights, a southeastern suburb of Cleveland. The paved pathway spans nearly four miles through the Garfield Park Reservation, which is part of the regional Cleveland Metroparks system. The park, which first opened in 1895, offers views of historical stonework dating from the 1930s, and wildlife-rich woodlands and wetlands.

On its northern end, the trail begins at the Mill Creek Falls visitor area; be sure to take a quick excursion to see the picturesque waterfall. From there, the path traverses a tree-lined corridor skirting residential homes as it loosely parallels Broadway Avenue. The southern end of the trail forms a loop with several access points for parking, restrooms and picnic areas.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available on the trail's northern end off Webb Terrace in the Mill Creek Falls visitor area and, on the trail's southern end, at the Garfield Center off Broadway Avenue.

Garfield Park Reservation All Purpose Trail Reviews

This is a pretty little park that is a green oasis in the middle of Garfield Heights, Ohio. The loop in the body of the park has one steep climb/descent depending on which direction you decide to ride the loop. Make sure you also ride the Mill Creek Trail out of the park. If you follow this trail along the creek you will be rewarded at the trail’s end by the 48 foot Mill Creek (or Cataract) Falls — the tallest in Cuyahoga County. Whether you walk or ride this trail I think you will like it. However, it is too short for 5 stars in my opinion
