Sled Riding Hill at Cascade Valley Metro Park

The sled riding hill at Cascade Valley Metro Park is one of the best sled riding hills in Summit County. Two sides of the hill offer both steep and slow grades for sledding down. It’s about 150 feet of hill with about 200 feet of flat run below it before the tree line.  Burn Barrels are kept hot and flaming by the park ranger staff, and you can park either at the top, or at the bottom of the hill.  I would suggest parking at the bottom- this will allow you to more easily tell your kids “its time to go”.
