The North Chagrin Reservation All Purpose Trail offers a 4.2-mile route traversing its namesake park, which lies on the northeastern outskirts of Cleveland. Beginning just south of US 6 (Chardon Road), the paved pathway dives into the trees as it heads south along Buttermilk Falls Parkway. You'll soon pass a parking lot for the Whispering Woods trailhead and, shortly thereafter, cross one of the park's bridle trails.
The next parking lot you see will be for the Strawberry Picnic Area, where you can also access the 1.6-mile Scenic Loop hiking path and restrooms. From here, the paved pathway departs from the roadway and becomes more secluded.
A little over halfway along your journey, you'll cross Sunset Lane, then arrive at the Buttermilk Falls trailhead. For its last leg, the path parallels Cleveland Metro Park Drive; a spur off the main trail provides access to the North Chagrin Nature Center. The trail ends at the Wilson Mills trailhead.
Parking is available throughout the North Chagrin Reservation, including at the Whispering Woods trailhead, the Strawberry Picnic Area, Forest Picnic Area and Wilson Mills trailhead.
