Getting There

River Styx is a scenic woods and pond park with both paved and dirt trails for leisure walks, hiking, snowshoeing. River Styx Park is a popular get away for hundreds of visitors each year. These visitors fly from the rain forests of Central America to stay in Medina County for the summer. Who are they? Migrating neo-tropical songbirds. This park is one of the few remaining sites in Medina County where these birds nest each year. The combination of open fields and mature forests make the area attractive to these fascinating birds. A .75-mile nature trail guides you through the mature forests of River Styx Park and provides great opportunities for bird watching. The month of May is the prime time to see the greatest variety of birds. A .5-mile paved loop trail circles the three-acre pond found at this site and passes through a wooded area as well. Fed by a unique aeration tower, the water quality in this pond is the best found in the park system. The park district periodically stocks this pond for family fishing enjoyment. A daylily garden donated by the River Styx Garden Club provides a splash of color along the trail during the summer months. Visitors can enjoy a family picnic at the park or can reserve a picnic shelter for group activities. Paved paths make the rest rooms and shelter at this park fully accessible.

Enjoyed both the paved and not paved trails, some small hills to keep up the pace on the nature trail. Paved trail easy. Will be back to see things in bloom.

Absolutely a little gem of a park. It's beautiful in the autumn and lots of leaf peeping to find here. Easy trails and beautiful weather.

I walked both trails with my 4 kids. We had fun exploring the flowers around the lake, sticks, and bugs. I highly suggest this park for families.

great little trail but it is just that a little trail. Only a mile long but nice if you just starting out or taking your dog for a walk. Most of it is in the woods and covered in shade. The short spot around the is pond is paved.

Nice slightly challenging hiking trail with an extra bonus of a paved trail around the lake. Approximately 1 mile between the two paths.
