Had a great time. Combined all the trails and completed the entire North Chagrin Reservation. There were quite a few times when we had to check our map because there are many connector trails that branch off, but it was part of the adventure. Great work-out! Will definitely come back again!
I actually like these trails better without the beloved steps! the climb to Fort hill is much more gradual and enjoyable that way. You still get the rad vistas of cedar point and the rocky tiver, too. as others have said, the trails beyond the just the hill have a feeling of being very remote very quickly. don't leave out the mount Pleasant loop either. far less traveled and a real hoot
The trail is in a really enjoyable area. The steps are really steep. It is something around 90 ft from the bottom to the top. This particular trail has heavy traffic, but some of the other trails nearby have a much more remote feel about them.
The all purpose trail is a great 2.5 run each way, 5 miles if you go start to finish and back. You have an old quarry with stream to look at on one side and traffic on the other. A good bit of the trail can be done on the other side of the road. It also has a par course exercise path which is a personal favorite. Basketball courts are always crowded and something to probably stay away from. There always seems to be a problem there. The rest of the park is fantastic! Great place for sledding in the winter too!!
