Trail Safety Tips | Hiking Seniority
Lake Metroparks maintains currently more than 43 miles of trails through-out Lake County, including a
4.8 bike/hike trail. Explore hemlock ravines, open meadows, mature forests, the
Lake Erie shoreline. Discover fascinating clues to our past.
Most trails are gravel-surfaced; some are hard-surfaced and suitable for strollers and wheelchairs; and some include steps and inclines that challenge any hiker.
Horses and bicycles are permitted on specially designated trails, and your dog on a leash is welcome at most parks. Hiking trails are open every day of the year and specific hours are posted.
