South of Cleveland, the Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation All Purpose Trail offers an outdoor excursion of just over 7 miles in Cuyahoga Heights. A good place to begin your journey is at the CanalWay Center on the trail's southern end, which offers amenities like parking, restrooms, and drinking water.
From the visitors center, you'll head north through the 306-acre park and have opportunities along the way for wildlife viewing, fishing, and picnicking. You'll pass trailheads at the Morgan's Hollow Picnic Area and the Settler's Bluff Picnic Area, where you'll find additional amenities. On its northern end, the trail parallels E. 49th Street and is surrounded by a more industrial area.
For a longer ride: At the trail's southern end, adventurers can connect to the 81-mile Towpath Trail, which goes north to Cleveland and south to Bolivar. Or, from the northern end of the Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation All Purpose Trail, a paved pathway continues north along E. 49th Avenue another mile to Washington Reservation.
At the southern end of the trail, parking is available at the CanalWay Center (4524 E. 49th St., Cuyahoga Heights). Additional parking options include the Morgan's Hollow Picnic Area and the Settler's Bluff Picnic Area in the Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation.
