I really like this park. There are several sets of trails and loops that all connect. Trails are very clear. Terrain is flat. Horses take these trails so watch your step! My favorite is the fact I can take my dog.

Trail has a good view of the lake as well as the city of Cleveland. Also, had enough hills to tire my dog.

One of my favorites

Trail clearly marked & well maintained.

A nice hike for our 5 and 3-year olds with a beautiful lake view at the library. We saw herron, turtles, butterflies and many birds on our walk.

Really short and easy but absolutely beautiful! If you come in the autumn, you could get some great photos looking to your left up the river from the rock outcropping.

Great trail! Great park! Love the overlook! Great views of Lake Erie in the distance.

Always like it!

Really good bathrooms

very fun and beautiful trail. the falls are beautiful to see at any time of year. trail has multiple access points to enter to play in/Wade in the river. most times we have visited we were able to watch great blue harons fishing.

Brought our dog along and we all loved it!

Majority of dogs are unleashed. Leash law not enforced. I stopped going after being chased by dogs both while biking and jogging. Owners patronizingly declare "eh, he won't hurt you." One dog owner regularity "walks" his dog by making dog run beside the moving car. Nothing is done about this. Well maintained running, biking trails.

Paved part is simple and fine for a quick need to get the dog out type of park. Unpaved trails would be better if marked more clearly. Some branches lead to people's yards/developments other branches look like they just stop. Okay trail for necessity not really for pleasure

Absolutely love this location and all the options it has to offer for family and friends. So many memories have been made here

Very pretty!!

Great trail for all levels of experience. The trail markings are a little confusing. We figured out that the Stanford trail splits off into the Brandywine trail and were fine from there. Has a decent incline for a quick trail. The falls really were gorgeous. You take a nice boardwalk/stairs down to two different observation decks. There are signs not to climb down to the water but several people were down there so we climbed down too. It was slippery and I fell down once but my goodness you can’t beat the view.
Everything was very well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and eco-friendly. There were trail maps and state park brochures for taking. We were very impressed.

I’m so happy we chose salt fork! Rent camped at Bigfoot Ridge and it was just perfect.

Okay trail. I used it for running and got lost which is probably my own fault but the trails were a bit overgrown and very technical. I would recommend this trail for hiking and enjoying nature rather than running. Very beautiful had I taken the time to enjoy it.

Good 4 mile trail. Some hills, 1 or 2 river crossings

A Brunswick classic, no difficulty but a great pond, trail, playground, flowers, and some geocaches. We always return

Great hills to climb for a nice workout for a beginner.

Whole family(dogs included) love this trail .especially lower section close to lake,

Entire hike forested with plenty of shade. Occasional lake views through the trees. Pay attentuon to where you're at on a map... couple of opportunitues for a wrong turn to make a 5 mile hike turn into 10 or more... and some of the trails are NOT clearly marked

Ran across a few things that I wasn't expecting to see on the trail. At some point there must of been a obstacle race here and 4 of the obstacles are still up. The trail is not marked and by lightly used they mean that the other reviewer and I are probably the only ones that have been on it in months. There were several, and by several a mean a few dozen, spider webs that I attempted to clear out of my way but still ended up covered in webs by the end of the hike. The lake views were pretty and the trail was decent. Nothing too strenuous, but I would recommend using a hiking stick for help on the one steeper incline with the rope and to clear away spider webs.

Take the Stanford/ Brandywine trail. A fun walk down through the woods down the gorge to the river bed then back up around to the falls.

Lots of cool birds doing the flying activity, including two bald eagles doing a little fishing. Plenty of herons and turkey vultures too. The lake is a cool backdrop to the hike, even if the terrain isn’t challenging. Too many people though.

Love Side Cut. Lots of different trails

Not difficult, and the river is easy to cross if you're okay with getting a little wet. By the falls, the river is deep e ought to swim!

I love this entire park. The trails are easy to hike with some hills. There are fun rocky areas and many places to explore. A great family hike.
