West Channel Pond Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide
"It’s hard to believe this seemingly remote beauty is actually spitting distance from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The occasional airplane roaring by serves as the only reminder. Otherwise, prepare to find yourself enveloped by wetlands, the adjacent Rocky River, and old oak forest. This hilly trail will leave some catching their breath after steep climbs that lead to picturesque views of the wetlands and river, 100 feet below. Whatever your athletic prowess, the top of Fort Hill is an idyllic spot for a picnic with a significant other."
