Our ride on the Maple Highlands Trail-checking out Geauga Cnty. parks

by Ruth Kaser for Cycling Articles

We decided to check out another area of Ohio for bicycling when our Rotary District 6630 Picnic & Awards Ceremony was scheduled to be held at Headwaters Park.  Sunday offered 80 degree temperatures and a nice breeze. The ride was a fund raiser to support Rotary’s campaign to end polio. Our ride was 17.5 miles in length- round trip on the Maple Highlands Trail. The trail is primarily a converted rail road bed, meaning it is fairly straight but there were changes in elevation along the way that added some additional fun to the out and back route. Along the route we also enjoyed riding through some covered bridges, and admonishments to pick up after your horse please-the horse signs were along the park road. 

The Maple Highlands Trail is in Headwaters Park, part of the Geauga Park system.
