60 Hikes Within 60 Miles Cleveland Including Akron and Canton Review

My husband and I have always enjoyed hiking, from our dating years to now as a family. Finding a place to hike in the Akron area isn’t too hard with the Metro Parks and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in our backyard. After a while, we get stuck in a routine of only visiting the trails that we know about. After reading the book “60 Hikes Within 60 Miles Cleveland Including Akron and Canton“, it will be quite a while before we get stuck in a rut again!

60 Hikes Within 60 Miles Cleveland Including Akron and Canton Review

Whether you have lived in NE Ohio your whole life or are in town visiting, “60 Hikes Within 60 Miles Cleveland Including Akron and Canton” is an excellent guide for finding the prefect hike for you. This book guides you through hikes by county, so it is easy to pick a section to browse based on where you wish to hike. Whether you want a trail that goes through the wetlands or offers scenic views, there is a trail in Ohio and in this book for you!

There is also a handy section that breaks down all the hikes by type. For instance, Busy Hikes, Hikes with Waterfalls, Hikes with wildflowers, Hikes good for kids, hikes good for solitude, historical trails, lake hikes, trails for runners, etc. The hikes are also broken down by mileage, 1-3 miles, 3-6 miles, and longer than 6 miles.

A hike that I plan to take my family on soon is the Squire’s Castle at North Chagrin. In this book, you get a brief description, at a glance info like length, type of trail, difficulty, what kind of scenery you will see, exposure, times open, whether wheelchair traversable, facilities, and more. This is the perfect amount of info needed for hiking with kids especially! Just punch in the GPS trailhead coordinates to get there.

Each hike section also has a map of the trail and park it is within. What handy information this book has! Next, each trail section has  photos of what you can expect to see on the trail. At this particular trail, we will see the Squire’s Castle as well as a sanctuary marsh. The section goes into more detail in 3 more pages on what each trail at Squire’s Castle offers including history on the location. This book really goes into great detail making it a lot more of an adventure to take a hike. If you plan to make a day of the hike, each section also gives you information on what is  nearby that you may want to do.
