Winter walking in North Chagrin Reservation

2017_02_14_trailwalk_north-chagrin-reservation_0006

On a sunny February afternoon, I found myself in the vicinity of North Chagrin Reservation with about a half-hour of free time on my hands. North Chagrin is part of the Emerald Necklace, the unofficial name for a network of parks that more or less circle the city of Cleveland, Ohio. Many of the parks are interconnected. The timing and the weather for my visit were perfect for a short walk around Sanctuary Marsh and Sunset Pond, where I captured these images:

North Chagrin Reservation is a 1700 acre wildlife sanctuary, and as you can see, I had a great day for my trail walk. The giant “snake,” located near the nature center, is a popular spot for capturing photos of the children who enjoy climbing on it and a pair of nearby equally large frogs. The trails around Sanctuary Marsh and Sunset Pond are easily accessible for visitors using walkers and wheelchairs, with other trails for cycling, in-line skating, and bike riding (no motorized vehicles allowed). If you are in the area, and seeking a place to enjoy outdoor recreation, North Chagrin is the place for you. Whether you’re considering a half-hour stroll or an all day hike on rugged terrain, you can find it here.

Hope you enjoyed our trail walk today. Thanks for joining me.
See you soon.
