Cleveland to Zoar
Three-Day Cycling trip: Cleveland to Zoar
This trip can be completed in reverse.
Morning: Ride from Cleveland to Akron. Start at Settler’s Landing and ride to Akron – Cascade Lofts
Station Bridge Trailhead:
Dante’s Countyline Saloon, 13007 Chippewa Road Brecksville, Oh 44141
Cross over the river along the pedestrian bridge (you are heading in a westerly direction), walk/ride slightly to the left (around the train station) and on to Riverview Road. Make a right, walk/ride up a short steep hill (heading north) and when you get to Chippewa Road, you will see the Dante's County Line Saloon. This is an ideal place to get a bite to eat and have a refreshing drink. Saloon opens at noon. (Mondays it is closed for lunch.)
Fisher’s Cafe and Pub Cafe or Winking Lizard. Both open at 11 a.m.
(My preference would be Dante’s Countyline Saloon, only because it might be something new and they have amazing burgers and fries!)
Arrive at Mustill Store Trailhead. Cross the road and enter the Cascade Lofts. You will be given a key access code to the loft. Your luggage will be waiting for you, if you select cartage.
Dinner and Evening Festivities:
Clearly there are many options for dinner. Suggestions for dinner take into account the fading light in October and the proximity to the Lofts.
Luigi’s Restaurant is a 6- minute walk; Dante Boccuzzi Akron is in the same area. Blu Jazz Club and The Uncorked Wine Bar are both half a mile away - a 10 minute walk. Their menu mainly consists of small plates but the food is good! Here is the featured musician for October 2016.
Morning: Ride from Akron to Canal Fulton.
Have breakfast and vacate loft by 10:30 AM. Breakfast supplies will be in the kitchen. Ride From Akron to Canal Fulton.
Lunch options close to the Barberton trailhead. You need to come off the trail and head immediately to the left (i.e., heading west) over the bridge and into Barberton.

Another option is Parassons, a local Italian chain serving pizza, pasta and subs. 234 Wooster Road North, Barberton, OH 44203. It opens at 11 AM.
