Short but fun trail. Great overlooks at various points along the trail, switchbacks and hills to get your heart pumping. Had to do it twice to feel as though I had hiked sufficiently on the outing, so hiked it in the opposite direction the second time. Added a portion of the Valley Link trail on the second pass. The Link trail descended to the valley floor where it was immediately cooler, and there was a lot of chipmunk activity. Crossed the Cuyahoga River and after a short time on the Towpath, turned around at the Link Trail branch off to Sand Run, back up the inclines to Schumacher Trailhead. Will definitely add this trail to my regular rotation.

Loved this trail! Some nice ups and downs, great mushrooms along trail, several easy water crossings (water level average; imagine heavy rains could render crossing stones underwater), plenty of shade.

Love this route. I do a winter hike here every year!

I like this trail and always extend it by taking the trail to Stanford House. The hike offers water views, the opportunity to get in the river, and when you head to Stanford House you go through a nice meadow as well. From Stanford House you can easily access the Tow Path and head down to Boston to hit the visitors center and park shop. I like to grab a snack and sit on the porch of the visitors center as a break before heading back.

Lots of hills! Signage was a little confusing on this trail. I wasn’t using AllTrails when we hiked it, so we did get off trail when we hit the open meadow. Eventually we found the trail again.

kicked by butt but well worth it.

Was a great trail. Some elevation areas but easy enough for my 4 1/2 grandson and with my dog to walk all of it. It was very crowded around the falls but that was to be expected for a holiday weekend. Would definitely recommend this trail.

easy to moderate trail. for major city park impressive. waterfalls nice size. we did the Stratton house and brandyhouse loop. less than two hours in total shade. recommendations good.

Nice trail with woods, a few small waterfalls, and the deer lick ‘cave’. The directions take you to a wide shoulder where you can park. We parked at the Meadows Picnic area which is a more natural spot to start and finish.
Trail is well marked. Follow the red trail signs.
We went on a Sunday morning after an overnight rainstorm. It was muddy in some places. You have to keep you eyes on the trail as there was horse poop everywhere. There are 2 shallow stream crossings that you can navigate on rocks if needed. We maybe saw 10-12 other people, mostly runners. Some areas with mosquitoes, but nothing bad and we did not use bug spray.
The map shown on All Trails follows the bridle trail on the east side of the loop, which confused me for a minute until I zoomed in more on the map. Taking the marked deer lick trail the whole way clocked in at ~4 miles.
Overall my family enjoyed it.

My wife and I did this trail as our first hike. It was fun. The falls were beautiful. The difficulty seemed right on point for what was advertised. Would definitely repeat.

Great trail.

Fairly quiet until you get to the Falls loop.

Fun hike close to home! Going on the *closed* trail off Mary's cave is our favorite that connects to the Highbridge trail. There are some amazing natural rock arches to be seen! The falls are the 'main' attraction but there is so much more to see and do here!

Always like it!

very fun and beautiful trail. the falls are beautiful to see at any time of year. trail has multiple access points to enter to play in/Wade in the river. most times we have visited we were able to watch great blue harons fishing.

Great trail for all levels of experience. The trail markings are a little confusing. We figured out that the Stanford trail splits off into the Brandywine trail and were fine from there. Has a decent incline for a quick trail. The falls really were gorgeous. You take a nice boardwalk/stairs down to two different observation decks. There are signs not to climb down to the water but several people were down there so we climbed down too. It was slippery and I fell down once but my goodness you can’t beat the view.
Everything was very well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and eco-friendly. There were trail maps and state park brochures for taking. We were very impressed.

Good 4 mile trail. Some hills, 1 or 2 river crossings

Great hills to climb for a nice workout for a beginner.
