After WEEKS of rain, nothing but mosquitoes! Literally followed by a cloud for 3 miles! Intended to do more but even DEET was no match

THIS IS NOT THE BROWN TRAIL as described. I wish this app was more accurate and would follow paths that are already identified. It is a combination of the Yellow Hiking Trail, the Silver Ridge Trail, and the Ski Trail. I wanted to earn the "Verified Complete" on the app, so followed the path shown. As shown, it is not paved at all. It follows beautiful trails through the woods. (Ironically, I followed the brown trail to get to this trail.) The park is finishing up some land management for native species, so I had to take a few detours. This is a beautiful, and well maintained park.

Love these trails

My husband and I hiked this trail on a very breezy summer day. It is a very nice trail, easy to walk, with some nice views. Oak Openings in general is a very nice metropark, with some very fun things to do. They have shelter houses that can be rented for parties and such, and some very nice offshoot trails. Just a short trip from Toledo, this is a great park!

I was goin to mountain bike but all paved trails. Fish are lazy and if u bass fish a lot like me this is boring. Fish only go for bobbers.

Completed this loop and others as part of a 10 mile hike with our Boy Scout Troop. Nice trail, better suited for running or biking than hiking. Loop is actually 5.3 miles, not 5 as listed.

Nice wide, smooth, well maintained bike trail close to Toledo. Trail is about 75% hard-pack dirt so I would not take a road bike here. A hybrid is well suited to this trail. Probably too tame for the hardcore MTB crowd. Bike path trailhead is at the evergreen lake parking area. Trail is almost entirely through mature forest. Trail is well marked. The trail intersects several walking/hiking and equestrian trails on which bikes are not allowed. This is the perfect trail to slow down and enjoy the surroundings!
