Dirt and gravel trail running along the Cuyahoga River. Power lines above head for the majority of the time. Stairs leading down to a lower section. The trail ends at a street, but it's possible to connect to the Chuckery Trail near the turnaround point. The Glens and Cuyahoga River Gorge trailheads are nearby as well.

The trail itself is a utility access trail mostly, with lots of high voltage towers. it does offer a post-apocalytic feel and beautiful views of the Cuyahoga during the winter, though.

nice and flat, some steps to deal with towards the end of the trail, little bit of water across the path, nothing to worry about though

WalkingGreat!

GREAT! Trail!!! We walked up to the beginning of the wooden bridge, just took our sweet time stopping and looking at everything. Butterflies! Bumble bees! A DEER! A few snakes! Peaceful and incredibly beautiful!

Kind of boring and not very scenic (lots of powerlines). Overall an average trail for an easier hike

Easy trail for running,hiking or taking your dogs out for a walk. The bridge is a little sketchy but seems ok for now.
