Lake-to-Lake Trail will be dedicated July 9: Middleburg Heights Happenings – News Sun – Cleveland.com: “The trail is a 2.3-mile hard-surface nature trail that links two 11,000-year-old glacial-remnant lakes, Lake Isaac and Lake Abram.”

This new trail, a 10-foot wide paved multipurpose trail, was dedicated at 11:00 am today. There are segments of boardwalk that cross marshes, which provide great opportunities to watch birds and other wildlife. Cleveland Metroparks has also installed interpretive signage along the trail. A life-sized mastodon skeleton is embedded in a sand pit at the northern end of the trail. The mastodon is perhaps a tip of the hat to the ancient heritage of the Lake Isaac/ Lake Abram area. These lakes were formed during the last ice age. They are the last remaining, and largest remaining glaicially-formed kettlehole lakes in Cuyahoga County.

Thanks to Cleveland Metroparks for making such a great area accessible to people! Without their time and investment, this diverse, important habitat would not be know, and would not be available for our education, spiritual renewal, and physical exercise. Get out and hike on the Lake to Lake Trail!
