Cleveland Metroparks, With the Help of Mayor Castelli and City Council, Celebrates the Opening of the Engle Road Connector Trail

Another nature trail has been added by the Cleveland Metroparks in Middleburg Heights as a great amenity for residents and businesses to enjoy! This project supports Mayor Castelli’s new Trails and Trees Initiative to provide all residents with access to parks throughout Middleburg Heights.

The new Engle Road Connector Trail, designed and constructed by the Cleveland Metroparks Construction team, serves as a midpoint along the Lake-to-Lake Trail. This trail connects the Engle Road sledding hill to the Lake-to-Lake Trail and provides an additional trailhead with parking.

The Lake-to-Lake Trail is a 2.4 mile accessible, paved trail with sections of boardwalk that connects Lake Abram to Lake Isaac in the Cleveland Metroparks Big Creek Reservation.  The trail crosses Abram Creek and passes through 175 acres of headwater wetlands that join the largest kettle lakes in Cuyahoga County.

This project was funded partially through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Recreational Trails Program and the trail will serve Middleburg Heights and neighboring communities which are densely populated in retail businesses, healthcare workers and patients at Southwest General Hospital, and residential neighborhoods.
