    Rode this trail for the first time today. In town visiting family and will now always bring my bike. A little muddy today which made for some slick switchbacks. Nice uphill on the red side. Lots of roots in the pine section. I would consider myself an advanced rider and had a great time. Top of the trail offers a bike stand with tools and a bike wash stand. Hit the trails early to avoid a crowd (so I'm told, saw about 8 other enthusiasts on trail today).

    Great trail for beginner/intermediate. It's a fun fast trail that's great for cardio and honing your skills. If you're looking for features like rock mounds or jumps you won't find them here, but you will find a well groomed and maintained trail with wonderful views and lots of fellow riders!

    This trail system is fast, flowy, and fun, with minimal climbs, several man-made plank bridges, and a few rock gardens. The Out & Back loop has some challenging technical features for the more advanced riders; however, less experienced riders can go around them.

    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.

    Very fun! Great flow. I, myself, am a beginner rider and I really enjoyed this trail. Sweet and to the point, very easy to follow.

    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.

    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!

    Really fun ride. Intermediate level riding, not a lot of technical stuff. Moderate hills. Very popular place with lots of riders.

    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.

    Unlike most beginner trails, this trail is enjoyable for anyone. Although they are not steep, there are plenty of long, sustained climbs. The downhills are much more fun than you would suspect. The flow is awesome!
    The best thing about this trail is that it is not intimidating for my wife, yet it is not boring for me. This is a perfect family trail.

    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.

    This is actually the "Royalview Trail" in Strongaville (See other listing) It is located in the Mill Stream Run Reservation. Both descriptions are accurate.

    Recently put 15 miles or so on the Royal view trail. This is located just east of I-71 off Route 82. Simply take 71 to 82, go east, then take a right on valley parkway and then a right into the Royal View picnic area. You can park there at the trail head and jump this trail.

    Overall, it flowed really well, some climbing, more on the red, but overall not too much. Trails were relatively smooth, with a couple spots of rock gardens and root patches and a couple stretches of elevated wooden bridges, but they were quite wide.

    Overall an easy ride to put miles on. This is quite busy with bikers....even the next day when I rode at Medina Reagan/Huffman, I spoke with other MTB'ers that they ride Royal View all the time.

    Been riding mountain bikes for about a month now (new to mtb, but semi skilled cyclist) and I found this track was perfect for me. Not too easy but not to hard. Super fun, I plan on going back real soon. Had a blast and would recommend any new mtb give it a whirl with a pal

    Went today to ckeck it out and I was pleasantly surprised. Pretty fast singletrack and fun/beginner friendly but will keep you interested if you are intermediate.

    Definitely flow trails. Although I wouldn't classify them as intermediate. It's the type of trail where you are only as safe as you are fast. So the faster you go, the more difficult the trail becomes. Very fun trails. Beginner friendly for sure.
