Buckeye & Deer Run Trails - CVNP


We'll meet at the Ira Rd. Trailhead (~3947 Riverview Rd.), just north of Ira Rd., at 10:30 a.m. and hike the Buckeye Trail to the Deer Run Trail Loop and back at a brisk pace (usually 3-3+ mph) for approximately 6 miles--which is usually a decent workout. The Park Service rates these as difficult trails… I imagine due to a few steep inclines, rugged trail surfaces, and stairs. (Restrooms are available at the trailhead & again at about the 4-mile point).

[From the BT website: This section of the Buckeye Trail follows the western edge of the valley between O'Neil Woods and Ira Road along the Cuyahoga Falls-Bath Township border… The trail crosses a plateau as it winds past giant beech trees and skirts ravines that drop 200 feet to what was once the 238-acre Sherman and Mary Schumacher farm off Riverview Road. It is an otherwise undeveloped and wild corner of the park. It is a trail that gets virtually no traffic, despite its beauty.]

If you arrive after we've started hiking and would like to catch up, we'll be traveling south on the Buckeye Trail from Ira Road.  Follow the blue blazes.

*Please check the maps below... And, as always, hike at your own risk.

See you there!

    Good weather, great people, and the trail is recovering well from the flash flooding of couple weeks ago. Let's do it again.

    I'm really going to try and make this hike. If I can get everything packed and loaded. We leave for Florida the 19the so I really want to hit the trails before I go.
