Rolling hills; open meadows; secluded lakes; historic structures; babbling brooks; and wooded groves, all with wide finely manicured (or well used) trails. It was 90 deg on this evening hike. On hot sunny days it is imperative to bring water, sunscreen, and bug repellent on this one.

Nice trail. Extremely muddy in some spots. Grassy areas. Was kind of confusing getting back to the parking lot. Parked off of Quick rd. I’d definitely go again.

As always, the cross-country trail is wonderful. It is a little bit muddy right now, but not too slippery. Even in the winter with no leaves on the trees, it still is beautiful.

This is arguably my favorite hike in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I love the views from the beginning on the cross country trails. The interior trails are all clear and wide and the loop around the lake at the end is a nice finish.

Ran the trail this morning. Trail was dry accept for a few places. You can easily get around the wet areas. The trail has a good combination of hills and flat trail. Also, the loop is relatively easy to follow.

A decent trail to run. Caution for roots and rocks but pretty flat and very pretty scenery. Lots of bugs!

Nice easy to moderate hike… perfect for snowshoeing. There are a couple steep hills to really get your heart rate going.

It's a nice hike, lots to see. Not hard at all, good for kids. I followed the loop around. I parked in a little spot off Quick road to access.

I combined 3 trails and ended up hiking just over 6 miles, a little wet and muddy after all the rain but not to bad

Good for a family hike when you have younger kids (our boys are 8 & 9).
