I visit here often because it's located directly across the street from my house. Features a long and scenic hike/bike trail, lots of wildflowers in the spring, wildlife, water features, and a fabulous nature center with some of the best naturalists in the MetroParks system. Always a joy to visit, and a respite from the hustle and bustle of the... More

The bike/walking trails are well kept and extensive, and traverse beautiful landscape. Hey could use small signs fir those of us not that familiar with the twists and turns, as it can get confusing depending on where you begin. It is a fabulous area. If you have not checked it out and walked or biked a few miles, you should.

I love riding my bicycle thru the metrparks. I have had great rides thru rocky river and surrounding areas. It's very peaceful and picturesque. Sometimes i will park the bike and walk thru the woods and watch nature. I try to get out here as often as possible.

Great part of the Cleveland Metroparks. And if you don't know why the Metroparks are special, then google it up. I used to live at the top of this valley, and play in the park all the time. So fun, in every season!!

There is no water in the river right now. It was a weird drive through, as we had done this drive a couple years ago in the spring.

Buy far my favorite place in the MetroParks. Make sure you stop in at the Nature Center. Perfect for kids or just to get out of the heat.

Another great park for getting away from the city and traffic. Lots of deer, birds and wildlife to observer. Also lots of trails for jogging, hiking and biking.

This is a great resource for the greater Cleveland area. We have enjoyed the park since the 70's. it is nice to be able to get away in an urban area.
