This was a very nice hike that we took @ the Bog. The loop was just long enough for us old people and the area is very unique. Go for this short walk and enjoy the country side.

This is a nice 1.6 mile trail that is animal friendly. It winds around a small pond and has a small part that is wooded. It is especially beautiful in the Fall.

Good for getting out of the house and walking about on a smooth dirt path. Have a bathroom and a map. Easy to navigate and easy on the feet!

I love the Summit County Metroparks but this trail bores me. It's flat, which is nice, but it's one of those that you feel like it's never going to end.
