Drove a hr and some to come visit here and let me tell you ! If you don’t like flying bugs don’t come LOL. I literally got out the car and right back in the car and I’m so sad and debated for like 10 mins but the bugs flew so much and were heavy on my car. The size of my thumb ; I just couldn’t grab the courage lol they were flying and looked like bees idk exactly what they were. Eyes were huge ; they were sticking to the windows ; flying everywhere. I noticed others swatting them off them in parking lot; I tried to move to another area and they were just flying all over I ended up leaving. Maybe another day in the cold weather lol I’ll give it another try. Sad lol ima big baby ! Hope this helps save someone a trip.

The Windfall quarry trail is very cool. old building foundations and millstones. Trail is getting overgrown and blocked off in spots. The main trail is very well kept and a nice hike.

If you’re looking for a nice, easy, level, clean hike, this is your place. Fairly flat crushed stone/packed dirt hike. If you venture slightly off the trail, there are some good views of the water/rock formations. Toward the end of the hike, there were some parts with bigs while in the woods. Almost entirely shaded throughout the hike. Enjoy!

Fun trail, the southern loop is crushed stone but a good little loop, the northern loop gets a little muddy but is worth the time to take

This trail is my go to. It has tons of off trails and feels very adventurous. I never get tired of it. Highly recommend.

This is an easy trail with a dog that loves the water. We easily got off trail because of interesting side trails but was able to get back on course with Google maps. Loved the history, graveyard of grindstones, river, and quarry.

A little muddy but not bad at all. Echo (pup) had a great time. The views were nice (water, forest, quarry) off the Quarry Trail. Pretty good shade! Not much company. A little overgrown on the edges and on some mini trails, but good overall. We'll be back!

I love this place, especially if you're willing to go off the trail and down by the river. There are some neat rock formations along the river as well, the old quarries are interesting as well. Overall one of my favorite spots to go with my friends, my dog loves it as well.

There are miles of trails not showing in Allltrails, mostly on the N/E side of the Black River. They are all volunteer maintained, and nicely cleared as of mid October 2018. There are new trail blaze markers, and a well-maintained entrance off the north side of the main trail off state Route 57 (parking adjacent to Grafton Lanes. The back trails are all single-track and nicely wooded.

Decent trail even if on the short side. Surface is a mixture of dirt and gravel. Moderate amount of over head canopy. Trail better suited for a leisure walk than mountain biking due to length of trail. Didn't see any wildlife other than a variety of birds. Overall a decent outting worth your time if you live in the area.

Very easy trail more for beginners. A great place for kids to hike and explore. I would hike it again on an easier hike day.

It's a nice walking park I take my family there once a week. I've walked some of the mountain bike trails and they don't look like the park is taking care of them very well.

This was a nice, easy trail. It was a beautiful day for the first day of 2017. The gates were locked at the Parson's Rd. entrance, but there is one right by Grafton Lanes on Main St. AllTrails only has a small portion listed as Indian Hollow Reservation, but you can add the MTB trails and the trail is actually more of a loop with a few areas where you repeat an area of trail. There is also an old golf course named Royal Oak that is now part of Indian Hollow Reservation. You can get to that just down the street from the Parson's Rd. entrance of this trail. You can add another 2 miles with the addition of a fitness trail within Royal Oak.

Went there in the Fall. 6 of us went MTB riding including 2 kids. Has a cool bridge over a huge river. The main trails were well kept. But the shorter trails werent kept up well.

First to Review

You can find one of the trail heads by the bowling ally which is off of State route 57. To find Indian Hollow Reservation you need to follow Parsons Road. Parsons Road is the road by the Gulf gas station. If you follow this road you will find the reservation, which is actually part of the Lorain County Metropark System. You can visit their website at www.metroparks.cc get better directions and even find more trails to hike! Hope this info helps all.
