Trail is well-marked and well-maintained. There are some nice views of Yellow Creek at the segment farthest from the parking lot, and some areas nearer the parking lot that probably present a nice view when the maple trees aren't fully leafed out.

Great trail. Not wheel chair or stroller friendly though.

good hill, trail goes behind a big red barn
located in the Oneil Wood Park off Martin Road. I prefer to go left to avoid climbing a zillion stairs. Return loop on other side of parking lot.

One of my favorite NE Ohio trails. Short but steep trail makes for a great workout. Go counter clockwise and take the stairs back up for a real challenge.

This trail is a little workout. Large vertical drop shortly after you get started mostly via wooden stairs. Levels out about a third of the way in. Crosses the street and swings you by Yellow Creek and then back across the street. Get ready for the final third.....back up to the top. The final leg is a little more gradual, yet still pretty steep. Almost no stairs on the way up, this was my favorite part.
