Brecksville Reservation All Purpose Trail Description

The Brecksville Reservation All Purpose Trail offers a pleasant paved pathway connecting the community of Brecksville with the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, a well-loved 81-mile route from Cleveland south to Bolivar.

The trail forks, so there are two western endpoints: one at Chippewa Road in the heart of Brecksville and one farther south at Brecksville Road. The northern route parallels Chippewa Creek Drive, while the southern route parallels Valley Parkway. The two trail routes meet in the middle when those two roadways join together as well and, from there, the trail heads east to the Towpath Trail and Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The trail traverses the heavily wooded Brecksville Reservation, an emerald jewel in northern Ohio which sprawls more than 3,000 acres.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms available at the eastern end of the trail at the Station Road Bridge Trailhead, where the trail meets the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail.

On its west end, parking is available at the Chippewa Creek Gorge Overlook at the intersection of Chippewa Road and Chippewa Creek Drive in Brecksville. There is also western parking available at the intersection of Valley Parkway and Brecksville Road.

In between, there are parking areas throughout Brecksville Reservation (9000 Chippewa Creek Drive), which the trail traverses.
