Ohio's Western Reserve, where the Central Plains, the Great Lakes, and the Appalachian Mountains meet, is a historically defined region stretching from the Pennsylvania border west to the Lake Erie Islands. It was once called "New Connecticut," and its residents have worked to preserve the village greens and the distinctive, historic buildings that surround them. Today, visitors are often struck by the area's unmistakable New England character.

The 35 trails in this book wander through forests, along lakeshores, across meadows, and down village and city streets. Most cross gentle countryside and average just 3 miles in length, making this guidebook ideal for families with children. A map, a photograph, driving directions, and a wealth of information about the nature and history of the area accompany each walk description.
