Cleveland Metroparks, Rocky River Reservation

The Rocky River Reservation is one of the most scenic spots along the Emerald Necklace of the Cleveland Metroparks. It's also the best for doing just about anything on wheels, especially in-line skating. The all-purpose paved trail snakes along the towering shale cliffs of the Rocky River and is smooth as a freshly paved driveway. Unlike the eastern sections of the Metroparks, it's relatively flat, making for long stretches of easy power-gliding. Winding through the lush forests of the flood plain, you're likely to catch sight of white-tailed deer. With 22 continuous miles of trail, you'll be plenty winded if you make it to the end. Just remember: Now you've got to go back.
