Super Easy, Short, I CAN DO IT, Rehab hike Big Creek Reservation

Description: This is a short hike on a flat, wide trail that begins at the north end of the parking area and makes a loop through land west of Lake Isaac, passing a marsh pond, pine woods, and an old orchard. I will be leading this hike on crutches, thus this will be super slow and we will be stopping to smell the roses. This is the perfect hike for the absolute beginner and those of you nursing injuries or having disabilities of your own. I, for one, am sick of not being on the trail because of my injuries and am starting these rehab hikes so that I can enjoy the many beautiful trails in Northeast Ohio despite my current physical condition. I hope some of you will decide to come out and join me.

Distance: 1.25 miles

Hiking time: Less than 1 hour

Dogs: Leashed, well behaved dogs are welcome.

Kids: All terrain stroller friendly, kids welcome.

Directions: From I-71 take exit for Bagley Rd. in Middleburg Heights; left (east) on Bagley; right (south) on Big Creek Parkway; continue past Fowles Rd. to Lake Isacc, on right.

Parking: There is a limited parking area adjacent to Lake Isaac. If possible try to car pool.


Note: This hike is taken from the 4th Edition of Cleveland on Foot by Patience Cameron Hoskins and pre-hiked by me prior to this meetup. As always, we make all attempts to make these hikes as safe as possible for all involved and will not leave anyone behind. But please keep in mind your own personal abilities and remember we all hike at our own risk.

    I really would like to get out in the parks but since my illness I can't walk fast. Hope this is up my speed or should I say down to it.
