Always like it!

Easy to walk these bridal trails.

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

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

This was an awesome hike. Very hilly terrain. Great scenery and good trail. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because there were a few moments where the trail markers were unclear. Also, you do have to cross a few streets, but it is mostly deep woods.

The whole trail is almost 5 miles, lots of hills! Great workout, and once you get past the nature center and construction it becomes peaceful and not too many people. You cross a few roads on the trail and walk along the path nearing the road for a few minutes, but mostly hiking in the woods. Lots of markers to keep you on track, and not end up lost or onto another path, like I do sometimes, lol. Some steep cliffs so be careful. Oh and I saw a coyote!

Very muddy and narrow at points, but there were some very nice views from the My Mountain Overlook. Not too challenging, but some nice hills throughout the trail.

Really enjoyed this trail. Creek crossings, cave, waterfalls, lots of wildlife...what more could you ask for?!?

Great hike with family.

Pretty good trail run. A few stairs and a half mile hill to challenge you. Some parts were very muddy but it’s rain season

Ok. Did this trail last week. Why? I won’t be doing it again. There’s nothing to see here folks.

I just rucked here the other day. I had 55lbs in my bag. It’s an easy trail and it’s pretty but leaves you wanting lots more. Lots lots more. Brecksville Reservation is pretty amazing but this trail isn’t. There.

Nice walk. Not on most popular trails which have you a chance to enjoy beautiful nature by yourself

Unbelievably muddy hike in early spring. This trail runs through an study area in which trees were cut in 1996 to promote growth of oaks and wildflowers. Kind of a sad site in the winter. Decent elevation gain with access to Buckeye Trail and My Mountain overlook.

Nice trail, not always marked well, but the path is well worn. Very muddy right now, “cave” is a lot smaller than I thought but still nice. Decent elevation, especially for Ohio.

little bit muddy!

First time at this trail and was happily surprised by how nice it was. Ended up being around 4 miles with nice elevation changes. Took our 9 month old border collie with us and she had no troubles. We went counter clockwise and enjoyed the small waterfall at the end of the hike - for where we parked at. Really enjoyed this hike & I’m looking forward to going back in the summer!

Trees down everywhere blocking many parts of the trail. Some apparently for months. Truly sad that park maintenance staff haven’t done their jobs. I probably could be a nice trail but not in its current state of disrepair.

I really enjoyed this hike. Lots of gentle hills and valleys, and enjoyed the rocks and “cave”. Really looking forward to returning in the spring when everything is green.

Beautiful trail with a lot of hills!

Parking is limited but the trail is really pretty

Followed the red trail to the green trail. Red trail wasn't marked that well and at times we had to guess that we were going the right way. Red trail shares time with the horse trail so that meant most of the walk was covered in horse poop, so that was annoying trying to go up the hills and around the poop all the time. We went backward on the green trail and went up the hills. The green trail seemed more populated with dog walkers everywhere. It was a beautiful day and the trails were pretty. I didn't see trash and the water was clear. Stopped at the Nature Center and it was a cute little stop.

Great trail to hike with the family.

Monderate for sure. Beautiful scenery was beautiful.

So many options and all are easy if you stay on a path. The main path is paved and alongside the road. While lots of people use it i have not seen it overcrowded. There are a few places to stop along ye way - picnic area or swings of river. The dirt paths are adventurous, fun and occasionally challenging. If you choose to go into the riverbed be careful - it is super fun but not always easy or moderate. I go here at least weekly and do something different each time.

Great hike. And although its not quite a "mountain view" the My Mountain View area is a beautiful extra on this trail.
