dogs on leash
This park along the Cuyahoga River has waterfalls, hills, trails, and displays about early rural living. The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail follows the Ohio and Erie Canal, where mules towed canal boats. The park has numerous historic homes, bridges, and structures.
Beautiful trail. Don't forget your camera! Lots of great photo ops. This trail has something for everyone. Loved how natural the trail was. Climbing the rock formations gave a bit of challenge and excitement to the day! Side trails are great. Even our dog enjoyed the trail. We would highly recommend exploring The Ledges as well as the loop trail. Two thumbs up
Like many others, I had only been to the first fall since the silly sign said "Trail Ends Here". I decided to go past the sign this time and it was great! I went around 9:30 on a Saturday morning in early October and there weren't a whole lot of people hiking the trail (the Buckeyes were playing later that day, maybe that was part of it...) The hike along the creek is a lot of fun! When you get to the second fall it's very peaceful and relaxing. It's just under a 2 mile hike total. I recommend this trail. And go past that silly sign! :)
E J. on Oak Hill Trail
Beautiful wooded trail that opens up to a pond around halfway through. The trail is well-marked; Plateau Trail intersects Oak Hill Trail several times. Great trail for looking at the autumn leaves.
Cheryl H. on Ledges Trail
We headed from the Ledges parking lot to Look Out from there we took Pine GroveTrail, which has a conectecting trail to the Lake Loop then did the Salt Run Trail back over to finish the Pine Grove trail ending at Ledges pavilion.
With all the conectecting trails this made for a great long challenging hike.
