Written Directions

Start at Rte 84 or Johnnycake Ridge Rd in Willoughby, Oh. Take Rte 174 or River Rd. south to Chagrin Blvd. Head East on Chagrin Blvd to Chagrin Falls. Nice little town to grab something to eat and enjoy the Falls.

Scenery

It has a nice mixture. Ride next to the Chagrin River, through wooded State Parks, Grassy fields, and past old farms. Just a nice enjoyable ride with some nice curves, nothing crazy. Lots of offshoo

Road Quality

Much of the road has been resurfaced this summer(2014)

Roadside Amenities

Some places in the parks to pull off if you need the facilities, Nice places to eat at the end in Chagrin Falls.

Additional Info

There are a lot of offshoot roads in the area, just be good with a map or following the Sun so you don't get lost. You are safe if you do get lost.

Motorcycle Type Sport-Touring

This road is just one short section of the Cleveland Metroparks system (not state parks) which makes a loop from one side of metropolitan Cleveland to the other...approximately 55 miles. All the park roads have a 35-mph limit and are fairly heavily radared. This is an area for a leisurely ride....speeding thru the few curvy sections is risky. It is also to be avoided on sunny summer weekends, unless you like to spend times crawling along in lines of picnickers & families looking for parking spots in roadside lots. This park system is known for lots of short scenic hikes, scenic river/creek ravines, bridle paths, picnic areas & small lakes....rather than for driving. A beautiful resource, but definitely leisurely.

04/22/2016 Rain and overcast early spring day but don't go out your way for this. It is scenic along the Chagrin River but only few hills and curves. Road in bad shape south of Gates Mills.

Nice ride when you don't have much time but want to stay off the main roads in the area. I usually ride this on my lunch break when working in the area. Clears my head and come back rady for the afternoon.
