I came to this trail to get a high view from the bridge but discovered that I would need to trespass to get hat view. The trail is mostly beaten down gravel along a power line. The river is just within ear shot that you hear the flow of water but can't really see it. The smells I experienced were enough to keep me away again. To get just a little but further down the trail where you actually walk on a beaten dirt path with lush green trees you need to descend down quite a few stairs.

Parking off Front st. past the Gorge parking lot, you can start the Highbridge trail here. Good view of dam.

It's ok. Better to continue to the stairs and head to the river. Trail runs along river.

Not a hiking trail. This is a walk over a really boring gravel road. Least favorite of the ones I've tried in Akron.

The bulk of this trail is pretty bland, although you do get to walk along the river. Lots of "city" all around you. When you get to the end, the Cascade Valley area is nice and you can hang out right on the river edge. Less traffic than the far more scenic Gorge Trail nearby.
