On April 13, 2019, people across the nation will kick off the spring trail season by hitting their favorite trails. Whether you go for a walk, run, ride, picnic, attend a special Opening Day event, or enjoy trails in some other way, we hope you’ll join the celebration! If you turn up with your bike,
OCBC will be offering free bike safety checks at the event.

Join us for a spring celebration along the Cuyahoga River on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail & Cleveland Foundation Centennial Lake Link Trail!

Stop by to join us on a ride or hike, snacks and refreshments from Cleveland Metroparks’ Merwins Wharf, fun, freebies—and to learn more about the great pathways in northeast Ohio and around the state!

Program begins at noon, with tours Departing at 12:30 p.m. and again at 2p.m.

👟 Future Redline Greenway Tours (12:30 p.m. & 2 p.m.): Guided hike to the future site of the Redline Greenway Trail. Please wear footwear needed for a rugged hike.
