“A repurposed golf course transformed into excellent mountain bike trails. Equal parts gravity & XC.”— Mark Miller

Family Friendly The cart path is also used for running, biking and walking, nature education, and picnicking in assigned areas if you're not up to dirt just yet.
Austin Badger officially opened the mountain bike trails in October of 2016. The site of a former 18 hole golf course, Austin Badger was repurposed into machine cut and shaped trails complete with berms, jumps, short technical climbs, and descents. The cart path is also used for biking and hiking if you're not up to dirt just yet. Use caution at all cart path crossings.
The 252-acre property was purchased by Montville Township in 2015 through the Ohio Public Works Commission to be utilized as a nature preserve. The park offers other activities such as running, biking and walking, nature education, and picnicking in designated areas. There are also outdoor fitness stations donated by the Cleveland Clinic and a 3.6-miles of purpose built mountain bike trail donated by the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association.
Once the Blue Heron Golf Course, the park has nineteen bridges and 7.5 miles of concrete walking trails throughout the property. While it may be years before the entire park will be open, the area along River Styx Road was opened in 2016. Austin Badger Park was named in memory of one of Montville Township’s first Trustees and settlers.
