Short but beautiful. can combine with Chagrin River trail for beach access and additional distance.

I enjoy this trail quite frequently. I also add a few other side trails to have a total of 10.5 miles. I highly recommend!

This is a great trail and is not boring with the turns, a few small bridges and hills. You may see black or gray squirrels, owls and wildflowers in the Spring!

This trail felt like a hero's journey. It had it all - respectable changes in altitude, winding paths, wooden bridges and the sights and sounds of nature. As you approach the end of the trail, the castle and crown for the best trail-ending surfaces (no more spoilers). I highly recommend this trail.

Pretty hike, moderate. Overlook shelter is falling apart.

Nice little hike with views of Buttermilk Falls Creek, shale formations, and the falls. Standing water/muddy in the winter but relatively flat. Can be combined with All Purpose Trail and short distance from Sanctuary Marsh. Spotted deer trails and several squirrels.

Good distance. Nice change in elevation. Trails a bit muddy after recent rains. Our loop was 8.5 total miles.

My go-to park!

This park is beautiful with well maintained trails. There are numerous trail combos available so you can make your own way. I hiked around 7.5 miles total, starting and ending at the Strawberry picnic area. The best part by far was the Hemlock trail, very beautiful and peaceful hike along a ravine. Fall colors were great too!

wonderful hike and a beautiful place to get lost...

Awesome trail with lots of ups and downs.

Nice hike. Be sure to go the whole way to the marsh/swamp. It's stunning and the walking bridges are charming. We did see a few non hiking, non fishing, men who just stood around and made me feel a bit uneasy. There is a bunch of litter as well. Many beer cans. Other than that it was a fun hike.

A fun place to hike, but the paths can get confusing

Very nice trail for family

Amazing place to explore. Enjoyed the history of the castle and hiking the trails surrounding it.

We took a nondescript trail from the castle to the Bridle Trail. It was extra hilly and root covered. And a lot of fun for the kids. Although there was a few times when I had to carry the two-year-old.

There are too many unmarked, rogue trails scattered throughout this park. Very popular and busy trails.

Overall the area is cool, but it's too busy for my liking.

Excellent hike. Did the loop during a wintry day and all had a great time. Pretty challenging to do the whole thing.

Love it. This place has special meaning to me since I grew up so close to it.

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!

Very nice entrance with the castle!Trails seem like they go on for a while so if you like to hike for a couple hours this is the place for you.

A bit confusing. Beautiful views. A bit more crowded than my liking. Castle is fun to explore.
