We extended the Deep Lock Quarry Trail along the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail not far to the scenic Peninsula area. It was fun to watch the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad come through here (unfortunately we didn't have enough time to include it). There is a National Park Trail Mix store (bigger than the one at Boston) and a few nice restaurants and places for snacks. We ended up having dinner here at the end of a wonderful day!

There is not a 2.5 mile loop trail in Deep Lock Quarry. You can verify that by going on Metro Parks website.
The address is also incorrect. You will end of on a dead end street with no place to park but you can access Towpath.
