Bruce M. on Riveredge Trail and City of Kent
Nice walking trail along the Cuyahoga River. It's kinda concealed under the bridges through the city of Kent and is a surprisingly beautiful walk. There is different "stops" along the path to view the dam and other areas. Some areas have heavier visitor flow from college students, coupled, and families.
A nice little hike along the Cuyahoga River through Kent. The park at the dam is a nice little hangout spot, and there are decks and stairs which lead up to the Main Street bridge and into downtown Kent. There are some secluded wooden walkways along the river that will lead you down to Tannery Park, which has just been renovated in 2012 with a walking and biking trail that follows the river out to Middlebury Road.
From there it connects to the Freedom Trail, which is part of Summit County Metroparks and a nice walking/bike trail that goes to Tallmadge Circle at present.
