Summit Bike & Hike: Brandywine Falls – Alexander Road - 6.2 / 12.4 miles

Ride Name: 64 – Northern Exposure 
Trail: Summit Bike and Hike Trail – Brandywine Falls r/t Alexander Road 
Rating: Intermediate
Ride Type: Out and Back
Distance: 12.4 miles

Today’s ride has us heading north on the Summit Bike and Hike from the Brandywine Falls Trailhead. The trail has us climbing up from the falls passing through the woods behind the Inn at Brandywine Falls. Soon we are on flat land heading north to Route 82.


Cyclists can return to Brandywine Falls from the S.R. 82 Trailhead for the 6.2 mile option. Cyclists can continue to Alexander Road for the longer 12.4 mile option.   

We ride under power lines as we reach Alexander Road and the Cuyahoga County line where we turn and head back to the Brandywine Falls Trailhead.

Out and back rides are designed with the intermediate and advanced cyclist in mind. These rides cycle out of a trailhead to a set destination, typically 8-10 miles away. After a break, the riders cycle back to the departure trailhead.

This ride travels at 10-12 mph. The ride is rated for leisure cyclists who enjoy cycling 10-12 mph on flat trails with an occasional hill or elevation gain. The trail surface is mixed with areas of both asphalt and packed limestone. It is relatively flat with some moderate elevation changes. The ride should be a comfortable ride for the intermediate cyclist.

This ride is on the calendar of the Spin-off Cyclists . We encourage you to join us on this and other rides. We are a group of cyclists of all ages and abilities who cycle the trails of Northeast Ohio and surrounding areas for fun, health and friendship.
