There’s something about trains that can bring out an adult’s inner child. These masterful feats of human ingenuity aren’t as common as they once were, but their presence is still powerful enough to excite us (unless their passing is holding up traffic, that is). Former rail corridors dot the landscape of Northeast Ohio, and most are but a distant memory. However, there’s one rail trail near Cleveland in a former rail corridor that’s open to the public and it’s downright charming. Ready to embrace the great outdoors in a totally unique way? Climb aboard and hold on tight, because this park offers one epic ride.
