The hike this week is in the midst of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I thought we would take advantage of the changing of the leaves the next few weeks. This park has one of the largest locks that used to be utilized on the old canal trail as well as the old quarry that the millstones and stonework was carved to complete the locks along the canal.
This week's hike is rate a 2 (moderate) out of 3. It is a short hike of 1.2 miles. There are a couple hills which make it a 2. It is nothing like the hills at Sand Run Last weekend for those that attended last week's hike.
For a short hike this is one of the most interesting and picturesque hike we have. If we are lucky maybe the train will be crossing the bridge along the Cuyahoga river when we are on that section. It is not uncommon to see fishermen wading in the river fly fishing at this time of year either.
After the hike for those interested we can Drive over to the Winking Lizard in Penninsula which is only a mile or so away for a lite lunch and coversation.
