Description
Waypoints (0)

All dirt trail that starts off near Rocky River Nature Center. A staircase with 155 stairs is incorporated into this trail and is used heavily. No water crossings, but the loop on the other side of Shepherd Rd can get pretty muddy after a few days of rain. Air pump, bike rack, and bathrooms all near the trailhead. Info on the area and the role it played with Native Americans is located near the top of the stairs. This is a very busy area.

Nice hike, a lot of people but not to many that you couldn’t enjoy.

Narrow trail that starts out with a good incline and nice views from several hills all around.

I'm realizing that I don't like people. If you're like me avoid this place until after you're vaccinated.

This was a bit underwhelming to me. The highlight is the stairs, I think there are 120 of them, and you have some decks along the way that give great observation points. Some covidiots don't know how to socially distance. The trails are a bit confusing, even when following the app, although it's really hard to get significantly lost. Nice paths but not a lot of variet as seen in some other trails. I think the architecture of RRR is its selling point. somewhat crowded, you hear traffic noise frequently, monotonous, somewhat confusing with signage.

The wooded sections were really enjoyable, but the boardwalks and stairs were very crowded.

Nice day so everyone was out. Some had masks, some did not. Very respectful distancing happening too.
