Description
Waypoints (0)

This moderate hike combines the Salt Run, Kendall Lake and Cross Country trail loops at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. There are a number of ways to go about this hike, although the easiest might be to park at the centrally located Kendall Lake shelter and start your hike there. The hike is mostly easy around the lake, with a few hills once you get to the Cross Country Trail and the toughest portions coming via the Salt Run Trail, which has a number of hills and stairs. These trails can get muddy, and it’s also a good idea to bring repellent for ticks and other insects.

Very muddy in places, at one point literally almost a swamp for about 25 yards.

Trails are in great shape with little mud overall. Great trail to run. Mileage is closer to 5.3.

Great hike, it was a little muddy here and there, and a little challenging, but beautiful scenery.

Hiked with family. Always a great area to combine multiple trails for a longer day hike. Lake Trail is short and sweet, circumvents the lake with a small section of wooded trail. Salt Run is longer and features elevation changes to get your lungs working. Features several bridges and steps and also had plenty of muddy sections today. Cross Country Trail was in pretty good shape as far as mud is concerned and is a pretty wide trail. Gives a feeling on walking on a service road at times. All in all a good day out for temps in the lower 30's.

A bit of up and down. Great trail. Car noise for about 50%
