the hiking was awesome but as noted by someone else there was a lot of mud. Hopefully that changes in a few weeks;) also we met very few people en route so that was a plus. If it hadn't been so muddy this trail would get five stars from me...
75% of this trail is nearly ankle deep mud so be prepared for that. Increased the difficulty but it was still a great hike.
This is a nice section of the BT, very few road crossings so you can get some solitude. Good for trail running as well. I did it out and back.
Excellent hike. Lots of vertical for NE Ohio. Wear your boots very muddy today for good portion of trail. Finished day with cold beer at Winking Lizard in Pennisula
Plan to go back and do the entire trail. Really liked it a lot.
Fantastic and challenging trail. Some of the best I've seen in Northeast Ohio. Great elevation challenges and some difficult and rough terrain, but varied. The trail is a narrow footpath most of the way and some sections are overgrown, especially closer to Jaite. This is a great way to get away from the business of some of the park's trails, and it's almost entirely shaded in summer. Add a few miles on the towpath to make this a loop (take the connector trail back from Red Lock to Jaite).
