VISIT THE ALL PEOPLES' TRAIL

The newly renovated ADA accessible All Peoples' Trail, completed in November 2019, is an elevated 1/3 mile boardwalk that offers nature access for people of all abilities. Originally completed in 1983, the trail has been a mainstay of the Nature Center and a treasured asset for visitors and educators alike. The trail winds through the forest, over the Doan Brook, and overlooks our signature marsh and Lower Shaker Lake. The marsh is beautiful in all seasons, but during the height of summer you will be awed by the picturesque splendor of the large native blooms of the Marsh Rose Mallow. The new ADA-accessible Cleveland Foundation N. Woodland Trailhead connects the trail to the surrounding neighborhood trails and the Shaker Parklands.
