This trail offers a 0.5 loop that's good for running on a flat surface and not having to worry about foot placement or distractions by vehicle traffic. To make things even sweeter, you get a great view of the valley if you'd like to take a rest at the overlook.

This trail is great for a quick weeknight hike after work. Scenery is great with the river and all. The Cuyahoga.

Beautiful park, walked the overlook trail with it to make 2 miles. The overlook is definitely a must see. Tree fell down on the oxbow trail so be careful.

This is a short(1.2 Mile) trail that wonders along a river and rises to travel along a ridge. Cross-country skiing is possible on lower portions of the Oxbow trail, and the Oxbow Area features a large sledding hill that is illuminated for nighttime thrill seekers. Scenic views of the Cuyahoga and Little Cuyahoga rivers await picnickers at the reservable shelter atop the Oxbow Area hill.
