Hike the Salt Run Trail

4.2 Miles Total - 452 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

A remote, hilly hike in the Cuyahoga Valley with frequent wildlife sightings.

The Salt Run Trail, which passes through alternating woodlands, meadows, and hills, tends to be less crowded than other popular hikes in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Hikers have reported deer, coyote, turkey, and other birds along this trail.

There are two trailheads for the hike – the Lake Trail access point on Kendall Lake, and the Pine Hollow trailhead on Quick Road.

MUDDY MESS

Hard to give a truthful depiction. Beautiful trail, filled with steep ups and downs, both open trail and log stairs. But we thought it would be fine because it snowed the past few days, nope very very muddy. We will be back to try this trail again! :) Also note: we did the full salt trail and my activity tracker said we went 3.74 miles. Will be interested to see what other hikers measure it at!
