Mountain Biking

Cleveland Metroparks has three designated natural surface mountain bike trails that are shared use with hikers. Mountain Biking is not permitted within the park from one-half hour after sunset until one-half hour before sunrise or when the trail is closed.

Before riding, please check trail conditions. Riding on wet trails can have a negative impact on the trails potentially causing ruts that would take hours upon hours to repair. In order to be good stewards of the land and have trails that are enjoyable to ride all season, please help us by not riding when trail conditions are unsuitable.
