Trail in the area near Strongsville,
“The western segment of a fast and flowy trail built in a modern and sustainable style.”

Open 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. Closed when wet and seasonally after the last thaw until the trail surface dries and hardens. The clay rich soil sticks to your tires so well it's impossible to ride through anyway. Trails are also one way. There are many rumors of rangers handing out tickets for violations to both of these rules. Check here for the latest updates.
Start at either the upper or lower trailhead, really wherever you find a parking spot, although the lower parking area lets you end on a faster downhill section. The trail is one way in a counter-clocckwise direction. See the Royalview Singletrack featured ride for suggestions on how to combine the trails in this area.

Enjoy a fast and smooth ride on 100% singletrack only minutes from Cleveland. The trail has a hard packed clay surface. It goes past some nice views of river beds and small water carved gulleys. Shortly before it intersects with the Yellow Trail, there is a out and back spur.

Enjoy your ride!
