Relaxing path for a stroll, not many people. Benches at the top of the quarry are a nice place to stop and relax. Would recommend boots or shoes you don’t mind getting dirty

Nice clear trail with access to the old quarry which is pretty cool to see, also access to Deep Lock (deepest lock on old Ohio & Erie Canal.

So I feel like "easy" is a bit misleading. I'm a bigger guy and the trail starts and ends with a pretty decent incline that I found pretty challenging. Overall the majority of the trail is easy going and the quarry was really interesting. I'm looking forward to coming back during the autumn. There are plenty of benches and lots of historical facts scattered throughout the trail.

Not a very challenging hike but the quarry and lock were very interesting to look at.

Nice trail with some interesting pieces of history along the way. Not a difficult trail per se, but it will definitely let you know if you are out of shape!

We extended the Deep Lock Quarry Trail along the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail not far to the scenic Peninsula area. It was fun to watch the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad come through here (unfortunately we didn't have enough time to include it). There is a National Park Trail Mix store (bigger than the one at Boston) and a few nice restaurants and places for snacks. We ended up having dinner here at the end of a wonderful day!

There is not a 2.5 mile loop trail in Deep Lock Quarry. You can verify that by going on Metro Parks website.
The address is also incorrect. You will end of on a dead end street with no place to park but you can access Towpath.

Really enjoyed this from the large grinding stones along the path to the old quarry to ability to extend the hike on the Tow Path!

Interesting hike, you can learn how locks were made from many years ago

Trail didn't seem to be marked correctly in a number of spots. We took two wrong turns, following the trail signs. We were disappointed by the short length, lack of change in elevation, and there really wasn't much to see once we got to the quarry.

Very easy hike, very nice site, and if its not enough for you, there is a connection to the towpath trail and from that other nice trails. It gets a solid five stars because.. And this deserve all caps...I SAW A BALD EAGLE on this trail.

A wonderful flat trail to enjoy the day. Lots of water and education about the mills. Def a recommendation for a relaxing day.

This is a nice little trail, located off the tow path near Peninsula. It's a good distance down the towpath, which makes it one of those out-of-the-way trails that are nice and quiet even on the nicest days. Weathered millstones and the quarry wall itself lend to the natural beauty of the place. Great hike!
