The 34-mile Bike & Hike Trail was one of the first “rails to trails” conversions in the country. Sections of the Bike & Hike Trail follow the course of two abandoned former railroads. Today, east of Route 91 in Munroe Falls, the Bike & Hike Trail parallels a scenic section of the Cuyahoga River where great blue herons, Canada geese and a variety of ducks can be seen. A small pond along the north side of the trail annually hosts a chorus of spring peepers. South of Boston Mills Road in Boston Heights, the Sharon Conglomerate rock walls of the Boston Ledges rise along the trail. Farther north, the trail travels along Brandywine Road. A parking area adjacent to the bridge over I-271 offers rest and a view of Brandywine Falls which, at 75 feet, is one of the highest waterfalls in Ohio. For your convenience, restrooms are located at the Brandywine Falls, SR 303, Springdale, Silver Springs and SR 91 lots.
