West Woods Bridle Path, Newbury

Directions:    Go east on Rt. 87 (Kinsman Road). This is a major east/west artery and easily located on any road map. The trail head is at a brand new park facility right off this road.

Trail Information:   This is a brand new park built and administered by the Geauga County Parks Commission. As of today (10/1/00) there is only a 2.6 mile loop but there are other branch trails under construction. The bridle path follows the contours of the land and is a roller coaster of ups and downs, twists and curves, stream crossings, etc. There are considerable pots of mud and trail shoes seem essential equipment. Lace them up tight - I took a header that could've been much worse than it was.
