Bring a Picnic or Get an "In" to The Maple Highlands Trail

This 32-acre park provides access to the central section of The Maple Highlands Trail. Its name comes from the hilly terrain of Geauga County, which reaches its peak nearby; thus, the Lake Branch of the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad became known as “the mountain run.” Its free-to-use bicycle repair station was donated by the Cleveland Touring Club.
