Beautiful!!! Stairs are a bit slippery after a rain so be careful to hold on to the railings.

Whoever rated this trail 2 stars is a moron

there are a couple of areas that have good elevation change that will have you breathing.

OK, I'm going to give you a better trail to hike than Deer Run (which is nice in its own right, don't get me wrong.). It's goes along the contour lines at ridge top, so there isn't much up and down but you're at elevation, so you get some nice views in the winter. In the summer, you're hiking through a very nice woods that's not near roads.

You'll go out of the end of the parking lot near the latrine. After walking a few hundred yards, you'll see the trail splits. Deer Run Trail is the right fork. Take the left fork instead. You'll go past some old overgrown fields on your left. Just as you enter the woods, you'll see the Buckeye Trail go off to the right. Take that. Follow it until you come to a trail junction. Going right will take you through some nice conifer stands down to the intersection of Ira and Martin Roads...but you'll have a steep climb to get back to the trail junction. Go left to return to the parking lot. (Pay attention to make sure you catch the trail past the fields to your right that will get you back to your car...you don't want to repeat the entire loop again!)

Parts of this trail have heavy poison ivy in the summer.

Pretty views with plenty of incline. Will return!

Trail is well-marked and well-maintained. There are some nice views of Yellow Creek at the segment farthest from the parking lot, and some areas nearer the parking lot that probably present a nice view when the maple trees aren't fully leafed out.

Great trail. Not wheel chair or stroller friendly though.

good hill, trail goes behind a big red barn
located in the Oneil Wood Park off Martin Road. I prefer to go left to avoid climbing a zillion stairs. Return loop on other side of parking lot.

One of my favorite NE Ohio trails. Short but steep trail makes for a great workout. Go counter clockwise and take the stairs back up for a real challenge.

This trail is a little workout. Large vertical drop shortly after you get started mostly via wooden stairs. Levels out about a third of the way in. Crosses the street and swings you by Yellow Creek and then back across the street. Get ready for the final third.....back up to the top. The final leg is a little more gradual, yet still pretty steep. Almost no stairs on the way up, this was my favorite part.

This terrain is a varied as you can get, up steep hill, down a weaving set of wooden steps, along the river, and across a road twice. Today trail was snow packed and icy in some spots. But it does not matter which way you hike this trail you will have to make a good climb at the end.
