E J. on South Quarry Loop Trail
Nice mostly flat walk. About half through the woods and half along the Valley Parkway, a two-lane road. The trail along the road is paved. This trail also features several exercise stations along the way with different suggested exercises to make the most of your walk.
On top of there being barely any traffic, it's not too easy, not too hard, but just right, and the perfect distance for a short work out. With thinner trails, and thicker forest, it feels more primitive than some of the trails from summit metro parks in Akron.
Single file trail thru the woods along creak beds and hills sides , Mature trees all around. share main trail hikers and mountain bikes . Great trail beautiful constantly changing altitude. Trails are marked well but if you dont pay attention to trail map at beginning it can be confusing on what trails to take to make it a loop. Walk yellow turn on orange to make loop or walk yellow until it ends follow red to right then pick up orange. Great walk only reason I'm not rating it a 5 , missing that wow feature like a waterfall, cavern wall, type of view.
I thoroughly enjoyed my walk through the shady woods at Mill Stream Run Reservation. The very scenic view of the woods and the elevation changes provided a diverse environment. The trail is well shaded and there are only a few spots where sun filters through the tops of the trees. There are quite a few bikers on the trail so you are well advised to not have your ears filled with earphones or you might not hear them behind you. This is a great trail for the recreational hiker/walker. I'll be heading back soon!
