Runner Notes

The trail isn't especially rocky, but there are a few roots to keep an eye open for.

Description

This trail starts from the Stanford House parking lot, which is easily reached via the Towpath Trail. We recommend parking at Boston Store Visitor Center and going north on the Towpath until you reach the small connector trail.

You'll pass by a few back country campsites (operated by the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park) before entering into the woods. The greenery is lush and abundant. You'll come across a few steep, challenging climbs, a few bridge crossings, and some stairs. Eventually, this trail joins up with Brandywine Gorge at which point you can either continue on or turn back.
