This is the first time that we have done this walk. It is a beautiful walk with lots of scenery so bring the cameras. In fact, you can have your picture taken in front of the CLEVELAND sign that was placed here. I think it is at 3 other locations. The concession stands has snacks and lunch. Our start is in covered pavilion by the concession stand. Bring a friend to this great picturesque walk. The second 5K passes the ice cream stand with great shakes and foot long hot dogs too.
There are benches for resting on the first 5K and a few on second 5K. Anyway, this is a great opportunity to enjoy a different Metropark. Also, for those who want a big meal Muldoons is not far away.
Hope to see you there bring a friend. So far weather is sunny predicted.
The Euclid beach trail has wonderful view of the Cleveland Skylines. You can also bring your pet. Our start is at the Marina which will have available sandwiches, salads, and drinks for your enjoyment. The marina has been nice enough to let us use their covered tables for our start and checkpoint. If you would like to volunteer for checkpoint which will also be at the Marina. Please let me know. Remember you are turning in on Euclid Beach Villa Angela and Euclid Beach reservation. The trails are all paved and flat. Bring a friend and definitely bring your camera!!
