Rode the last three miles to Kent terminus. Very green, lots of shade, no bugs at 7 AM.

Beautiful trail! Gets pretty hilly around Bedford reservation (connects at the end of the hike and bike) and Cuyahoga valley national park. My long trail and most elevation to date!

Nice cool afternoon. Light to moderate traffic. Not too bad with so many people walking due to CV-19.

I forgot to record until I turned around, so distance is double what it shows. Love this trail - so close to home and you can walk forever if you’d like

Relatively flat paved double wide. There are a few grade level road crossings which can get interesting if drivers aren’t paying attention. There are some single tracks off to the sides to explore.

This is the longest trail I’ve done to date. Excellent trail. Long, flat, and plenty to see. It gets a little hilly around Cuyahoga Park. But if you want to push your endurance this is for you.

I rollersake the trails, definitely fun, but there are a few patches of leaves that are rough to pass through.

This was one of my favorite things about NE Ohio - all the bike/hike trails. I could ride this trail from my home in Stow all the way to Cleveland. I loved it, but watch for walkers; they often have headphones and don't hear you. Also watch for the occasional rude biker who thinks that it is just their trail :). Fortunately, 99% of the people on the trail are considerate and simply out enjoying the outdoors. Miss ya, Cleveland!

The trail is nicely paved with some sections being a little bumpy. There are a good bit of road crossings, minor and major, but they don't impede biking much. Biking through the residential areas can be a nightmare if you are trying to do the trails yourself especially the area just south of Stow High School. Bring one of the maps that are provided at most of the trailheads and keep an eye out for trail signs when in residential areas!

I would say this trail is primarily use for walking/running and casual bike riding. Not for road cycling.
