Good park

A nice park, very big, lots of trails. Love walking my dog on the trails. The trails are a nice mix of wooded and grassy areas. Plenty of trashcans as well.

Our hiking group is always looking for a new path. This abandoned rail line is apparently part of South Chagrin Reservation, although you'll pick it up as a bridle trail in Chagrin Falls. At first, the path is paved, but then turns into the gravel and cinders of the old rail bed. The condition is generally good. As you cross... More

South Chagrin is just up the road from another great park, North Chagrin Reservation. South Chagrin is home to an arboretum, Squaw Rock, and a ton of trails to walk or hike on. If you like exercise there is a fitness trail, all purpose trial, and wooded trails. You can spend a few hours or the whole day here.

We came here on a hot summer day to do some hiking. We did two short trails, one of which included a water hike that led to a small waterfall. We were with five kids aged 6-16, and everyone had a wonderful time.

Went there to photograph the water falls. Was mainly interested in Squaw Rock falls. It's a short walk from the parking lot and then down some stone steps to the top of the falls. Some one had piled a some large limbs between the bottom of the steps and the river which made taking photographs of the falls impossible. There... More

Squaw rock area is really wonderful to see. The rest of the trails are nice too, and even though they are mostly well marked, they could use some additional markers.

Wonderful route from North Chagrin through South Chagrin onto Bedford Reservation and down to the Ohio Canal. Especially when the colors are changing. Slow leisurely ride with no pressure. Does need a few more spots to pull over, take a picture and just enjoy the view!

Love the trails, also a mix of open fields for picnicking! People tend to be friendly and a great place to bring your pup!

Incredible trails and views. Home of Henry Church's Squaw Rock sculpture from the 1860's. In a few steps you completely leave "civilization" for the REAL world. Trails lead right down to the Chagrin River
