Not my favorite trail for hiking, but it's a nice loop for trail running. Not too long and has enough hills and obstacles to keep you on your toes. I usually do a clockwise loop so I don't have to go up the steep hill at the very end.

The best way to do this trail is as an "out and back" with the small loop at the end. (Drag the "elevation cursor" to the 1.5 mile mark...See the cross over on the map? You're gonna use that.)

The trail starts out from the parking lot and goes along the edge of the field. (Be careful of the poison ivy in the summer?) At the far end of the field, bear left down the steep hill. You'll go through some nice woods along the ridge top. When you get to the crossover (it's marked) keep going in your present "clockwise" direction. When you get back to the crossover, take it and return to the parking lot the same way you came in.

The trail along the bike and hike trail is nothing special and along Streetsboro Road is a pain.

First time I hiked this trail, I almost bumped into a coyote.

Nice trail with some long straight away stretches through the trail. Cross over route 303 to Happy Days lodge to pick up Haskell Run trail to The Ledges trail for an extended run/hike. A great trail for wildlife viewing.
