This is a pretty, but short trail with a view of the valley. You have to take the valley link section to get down to the river we found out.

Really surprised by this trail!! I took the trail halfway around the loop where it goes down to the river (it’s steep) but there’s a hidden beach and it’s absolutely beautiful and totally worth it. Great leg workout and good workout for your pup as well!! Beautiful valley views as well and the trail is easy to walk but does have a good amount of incline.

It’s a short trail. However it’s really pretty. Some serious uphill coming back. I suggest giving yourself time and doing some of the trails it is connected to. Great hike

9/12/19. This was a nice short hike or workout if you would like. 1.2 miles out around a loop and back. The trail has some tree roots to walk over but not enough you have to keep yours eyes on the ground. This is a wooded trail with a ravine to look down at. I would imagine this would be beautiful when the leaves change colors. There is no hike to a view on this one. 30’ of brisk walking. I would start early in the day and do a few hikes in this area to make it worth it. The trail did have a few lightly muddy spots. Happy hiking!!!

Short but fun trail. Great overlooks at various points along the trail, switchbacks and hills to get your heart pumping. Had to do it twice to feel as though I had hiked sufficiently on the outing, so hiked it in the opposite direction the second time. Added a portion of the Valley Link trail on the second pass. The Link trail descended to the valley floor where it was immediately cooler, and there was a lot of chipmunk activity. Crossed the Cuyahoga River and after a short time on the Towpath, turned around at the Link Trail branch off to Sand Run, back up the inclines to Schumacher Trailhead. Will definitely add this trail to my regular rotation.

Definitely Hilly! We accidentally took the trail out to San run then had to turn back. Beautiful place and quite the workout! Dogs loved it!

Two bridges and easy hiking terrain. Wildflower field at the beginning and a couple cliffs along the way. My dog liked it too.
