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.
