Short paved trail that is a just one of a network of trails in the Black River Reservation. If you in for a short leisure walk and nothing more then this trail will meet your needs.

this is my home trail. I walk this regularly and have for years.

Short loop, but something different than the normal road running.

Very nice trail which is maintained well. Paved trail which serves for both waking and bike riding. A few side trails which allow easy access to some off the main trail sites and access to the river. Saw a variety of birds, squirrels, and ducks but I'm certain other animals are present. Great place for a picnic as well. Can easily make a nice day outting event.

The trail leading to the entrance of Water Fall Trail is paved and well maintained, whereas the looped trial to the waterfall is grass and dirt. Not too much traffic and well worth taking the extra loop off the main trail to see the waterfall. A variety of traffic on trail including those walking, jogging, or biking. Trail is dog friendly so a plus for pet owners. Saw a few birds but was surprised there wasn't more wildlife.

the main path can be picked up several places and its a very smooth path with a few short trails off to the side.

it was pretty and everything but absolutely ravaged by humanity. the trail is paved. there are electrical lines running through the trees and gas lines running underground. all the water is disgustingly polluted by runoff and litter..including the falls...as someone who's passionate about nature and the environment this was depressing..but if you don't care about things like that it's a decent, relaxing walk

Walked the Bridgeway trail (out and back, 3 mile) to the Waterfall trail (loop, 1 mile). Took around 2 hours at average walking pace. The Bridgeway trail was well maintained, busy with walkers/bikers, and features various pond and wetland areas. The Waterfall trail was underwhelming. The trail itself was poorly maintained. The waterfall was beautiful, however the basin was filled with trash and debris. As far as trails in the Cleveland area, 4/5. Would recommend, would not hike again.

LOVE the water falls and the cave (great photos) and the fact that the trails right next to the water. Theres plenty of things to do and see while in there.
