Description

The most notable feature is the Bridgeway Trail and the Steel Mill Trail. ¬†They total 5 1/2 miles of paved all-purpose trail that follows the Black River through its meanderings from Elyria to Lorain, spanning four city jurisdictions altogether. The reservation also features three separate picnic areas: High Meadows, Bur Oak and Day’s Dam, each contributing its own special character to the variety and natural beauty of this impressive park.

Birding:
The Bridgeway Trail (south) offers birds associated with wetlands, riparian forests, and prairies; plus a parking lot overlook. The Steel Mill Trail (north) offers great river views and chances to see bald eagles, vultures, and ospreys.
