The South Chagrin Reservation All Purpose Trail offers a paved route just over 7 miles through its namesake park in northeastern Ohio. From its western end on Richmond Road, the trail follows Hawthorn Parkway, passing Sunset Pond as it heads northward. The surrounding landscape is largely residential, buffered by wooded areas, and you will have a few well-marked street crossings.
About midway, the trail turns eastbound and you'll come across the Harper Ridge Picnic Area, where there is a parking lot and restrooms. The trail ends in a loop around the Shelter House Picnic Area. Coming off the loop, you can access the park's bridle trail system and a hiking path that leads down to the Chagrin River and a sandstone carving called Squaw Rock.
Several parking lots are available within the South Chagrin Reservation. On the west end of the trail, parking is available at Sunset Pond. Mid-trail, parking and restrooms are available at the Harper Ridge Picnic Area. On its east end, parking is available at the Shelter House Picnic Area.
