ATTENTION

Bridges at the Brecksville Reservation are now open. It is now possible to ride the entire Brecksville Reservation now that the two bridges are completed.

New horse trailer parking. Cleveland Metro parks has announced the opening of a new, very large horse trailer parking area east of Rt.21 and south of Rt.82 on Meadows Drive, close to the Meadows Picnic Area.  There will be access to restrooms, tie rails, mounting blocks, a water fountain, and more than enough room for many trailers. This is larger than the previous field at the stables. This is a wonderful enhancement to the trailer parking use in the Brecksville Reservation.  Cuyahoga OHC has always enjoyed a productive relationship with the Cleveland Metro parks.  Brand new maps of the reservation have been developed with all parking areas marked. They are the Meadows, the Stables, as well as two other small areas for a couple of trailers. Cleveland Metro parks CEO Brian Zimmerman, his staff, the park management and crews have been most gracious, hard working and helpful in their response to our needs.

Parking at the stables is still available. Riders need to stop in the office or the lesson/training Barn 2 for assistance or call    440.227.0014 - with any concerns or questions regarding parking.

BRIDLE TRAIL ISSUES

South Chagrin Reservation Trails: The trails along Chagrin River Rd. from Miles Rd to just north of the small parking area along the road (about a quarter of a mile) will be closed for gas line work. This will be starting on December 30, 2015 until the end of April. The road will remain open. You will be able to ride from the Polo Field to this point but not beyond. You can park at the Shelter House or "Wilsons Yard" parking on the south side of Miles at Chagrin River Rd, and ride the loops but not on down to the Polo Field.

***************************

Brecksville Reservation Trails: The trail from RT. 21 down to the main part of the reservation at the "four point" trail intersection of trails is closed till further notice because of a major culvert collapse.  The main loops are not affected by this closure. No estimate of repair time is available at this point.

***************************

Brecksville Reservation Meadows Parking: Be aware that the ground may be soft after all the rain and use caution so you do not get stuck. Paved parking is available at the Station Rd. Trailhead on Riverview Rd. and Valley Parkway.(remember if you do get stuck anywhere - unload the horses to lighten your trailer.)

***************************

Valley Parkway Connector Trail Meeting: There are plans for an All Purpose Trail to be constructed on the current bridle trail in the Brecksville/Broadview Heights area of Cleveland Metroparks  The Bridle Trail is to be moved across the road to the other side of Valley Parkway. We want to be assured that the Bridle Trial will be constructed and ready for use before the APT closes the current Bridle Trail. This will be a nice Bridle Trail and we have no objection to its relocation. We just want to express the need for the timing. Please attend one of the meetings or comment on line at clevelandmetroparks.com/parkwaytrail.
