hiking, walking, trail running...backpacking trek training...best all round trail for those pursuits around. You can cut it in half if you don't have time for the full 3.2 by taking the shorter trail option, well marked, name evades me! New trails cut, and just lovely. good elevation gain, hike along the creek, and up along the ridge and plateau with meadows and grassland. nice!

Fantastic hike today. The trail was slippery in a few places and there were opportunities to hop across streams. Very well marked trail. Beautiful wildflower meadow area at the back of the loop, so glad I opted for the longer hike even though it was sprinkling a bit.

It was a perfect hike. I loved the ever-changing scenery. It was awesome for a weeknight hike!

Most enjoyable. The “Top of the world” is a wonderful spot for meditation or a little yoga. From there to the trail head can be a little noisy, being so close to Bath Rd.
Be careful in the rain.

Wonderful trail, a mix of forested and open high field grasses. Does include some significant ups and downs which is nice but to be aware of. Wonderful couple hour hike.

I would say this trail is on the tougher end of moderate. It has very steep hills and many stairs, but it’s worth all of it. Very pretty area, takes you through wooded areas, past a beautiful barn and a nice creek. Honestly, it has everything I’m looking for in a hike.

Boooo! Mingo started out pretty cool with a nice incline with the stream on the left, but so is the road. After a couple miles, the trail crosses the road, which is where the trail used to loop around the other side of the stream. It doesn’t anymore. So I ended up looping back on the paved multipurpose trail...several feet away from the road. Not even a run-in with a big white tail buck saved this hike. But if you love being really close to roads and cars and stuff, you’ll love it.

The hilly part of the trail provides a good workout and beautiful scenery. I saw only four other people on this trail during the entire time I was hiking. There are places where one can easily extend the hike by going into the F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm or other extensions.

Pretty and not completely “easy”. We started on the Alder and took this trail where they meet up. Lots of shade and a few hills.

One of the neater trails I've found in the area in terms of terrain and scenery, and not much noise pollution from traffic until the last 1/4.

It is a terrific trail with great scenery. The most well-marked trail I have ever ridden. The surface was very smooth from Akron all the way to Cleveland.

Beautiful views, we went to the left first and enjoyed the climb. There was little to no water running so we had no trouble crossing areas that may have had runoff’s.

Nice, easy trail (good for kids). Lots of plants and animals to spot along the way. Features a pond and a suspension bridge.

Not a great trek. Close to road and trail was closed approximately 1.5 miles in. With all of the wonderful trails to enjoy, this one should be far down your list.

I love this trail! Awesome for trail running. A moderate amount of hills, lovely wildflowers in May, and some little stream hops. Super fun.

mountain biking

This trail is so fun to ride. It’s not so much mountain biking (pretty flat and mostly paved/gravel), but beautiful scenery and fun shops, restaurants, and bars along the way.

Probably one of my all time favorite trails. I spend so much time here. I love the wildlife. There’s owls. There’s ducks. There’s herons. This trail is amazing. Be aware that the bridge in back of Szalays is out so you have to take a little detour. This is my running trail as well. I wish I could give this place 6 stars. So many wonderful memories here

Overcrowded and you can always hear the traffic. There’s good elevation here but it’s not really anything special. I’m pretty bored with the Sand Run area. Too many people. Too many dogs. Too many perverts. Pretty to look at but not really a good hike.

Me and my friend Amy do this trail all the time. We like it because it’s a little challenging and always empty. There’s never really anyone there whenever we go. There’s a set of stairs here and there’s also a nice elevation. Make sure your shoes are waterproof as you might or might not get wet crossing the river. I will most definitely be back.

This is one of the greatest trails I have ever done. The views from the top are beautiful and this trail is all about elevation. This trail also has the greatest set of stairs I’ve ever seen in the park system. I did them 3 times in a row and my legs were on fire. The trail is short but lots to see. You can actually walk into the creek and take some fantastic pictures. I can’t wait to go back.
