Harpersfield Cruise Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Enjoy two covered bridges, ride through picturesque wine country, and take a tour on the Western Reserve Greenway Trail; all that, plus ride past the oldest tavern in Ashtabula County. Life is good. Known for their Slider Buckets, they also offer chicken, steak, sandwiches, salads, and a full drink menu.
In the late summer and early fall, the tang of ripening grapes is in the air along this Grand River Valley tour. The rich and fertile soils of the region are perfect for producing great grapes; Ashtabula County produces 65 percent of the grapes grown in Ohio. Twenty local wineries are in the area, and the route passes several of them. It begins at the Harpersfield Covered Bridge, built in 1868, which spans the Grand River. At 228 feet, this two-span Howe truss bridge is the second-longest covered bridge in the state."
