Trail Description
About this trail
The Royalview Trail is located in the Mill Stream Run Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks near Strongsville, Ohio. It was first opened in June of 2012, after many hours of design and construction work by the Cleveland Metroparks and volunteers from the Student Conservation Association and the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA).

The trail network consists of two loop trails:

The Yellow Trail - about 3.5 miles
The Red Trail - about 5.5 miles
The Red Trail is further split into east and west. Riding directions alter each day of the week; check the markers at each trailhead to determine the direction for the day. Please note that you may have to ride a short connector via the road to hit every trail, depending on where you are parked and the direction of the day.

There is also an out and back skills section that is accessible from the yellow/red connector.

There is water near the picnic pavilion at the top lot.

The terrain is very beginner-friendly, with gentle climbs and descents, some roots, and very few rocks.

Review: Awesome single track for the beginner to intermediate rider. Not much climbing, depending on what you are used to, but you can get over 1K feet of climbing after doing a few loops of the red and yellow trails. Probably one of the more classic MTB-type trails in OH.

Similar Trail: Similar to Bedford but a bit more techy I think.

Review: This place was a lot of fun! I consider myself an experience rider and i took someone who had only been riding for a few months and she loved it too. No real scary parts or serious obstacles to be had here. Just a nicely maintained trail through the words of Berea. Afterwards we went to The Brew Kettle (10 min away) where we had some of the best chili ever. Beers were on point too but this isn't a beer website so I'll save that for later. Anyway, we had a nice little day trip from Canton and look forward to going back again.

Review: Fun singletrack, the yellow route has some gradual climbing but nothing sustained. The red route flows a little bit better, has some rooty areas and some rocks but nothing too difficult. Great trail for people new to the sport and/or intermediates.

Review: What an excellent set of trails! Flowy and FAST! A beginner could handle these and someone with advanced skills can push their boundaries with speed. The red loop is fun, the yellow loop offers a long gradual climb that offers a great aerobic workout, and there is an advanced loop that offers more advanced features for those with better technical skills. I would say this stands out as one of my favorite rides while traveling. What a great mix of fun & workout!

Review: Good if you're a beginner. Pretty lackluster if your of any other skill level. Most of the trail is terribly out sloped. Only part that didn't have me thinking "man I should've went to VK or Mohican " was the "most difficult" section which would be perfect for intermediates.

Review: New to the game, but this track got me into into the sport real quick. Flows great, tough up hills, fun downs...track options to jump on/off if you get too gassed. Easy access and has been in great shape every visit. Girlfriend was literally a first timer and had no issue with the yellow. She too had a blast. I'll be back.
