    May be coming to Cleveland, looking for recommendations for an intermediate rider

    I hear about the Wayne State forest, any help on that? Any other ideas? I'm driving up from Florida, so south to north. Thanks

    First thing to mention is that we've had a LOT of rain lately, and every trail system in Ohio that I know of is very wet and unrideable.

    Most of the mtb trails in Wayne NF are in the the Marietta Unit (the eastern part of the NF). Also, a permit is required for mtb in the NF. Links to the permit and trail maps here:

    Wayne National Forest - Bicycling:Mountain Biking

    There are other trail systems at State Parks and some county parks. The closest to Cleveland are Royalview (Cleveland Metroparks):

    The other trail in town is the Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation trail:

    Other popular trails around Cleveland can be found at West Branch State Park, Findley State Park, Mohican State Park, and Reagan Park in Medina.

    Good luck.
