The scenery is beautiful but the trail is in complete disrepair. Pricker bushes are overrunning the trail, trees are down and blocking the path, and there are times when the trail disappeared completely. Mud should be expected this time of year but there are places that clearly need planks thrown down as well.

We live down the street from this park and love coming here no matter the weather. We love walking along the trail and seeing Lake Erie, especially at sunset. This park is very clean and quiet.

Excellent in any season. Well maintained primary and side trails. Excellent views of marsh and Lake Erie. Key segment of the Bedford Section of the Buckeye Trail. Many birds to observe. Spectacular sunsets.

I was a little disappointed by this trail. It's gravel until you get to the lake and it's not really a loop. It's an "L"shaped trail that you just have to double back . The only saving grace and this is what makes it 2 stars instead of 1 star for me is that it does track the Lake Erie shore for about a mile. Other than that, I wasn't crazy about it. It's perfectly flat with very little variety.

Beautiful woods along Lake Erie's shore. Wildlife is so used to people that you will have excellent deer, woodpecker and waterfowl photo opportunities... It is one of the few places in N.E. Ohio where you can take your dog to swim in Lake Erie on a beach. Well paved paths are available for biking too (not all trails, though!). The Marsh Rim trail offers a unique overlook of the Mentor Marsh.

Canoeing/Kayaking is offered - rental plastic kayaks available.
