If you have joined the FGP Geauga Trail Challenge, you may earn some miles at this outing. 

Scenic River Retreat was established in 2005, when Munson Township purchased a beautiful tract of land from the Klatka family on Mayfield Road near Alpine Valley overlooking The Fowlers Mill, and an abutting property from Heather Hill at the corner of Auburn and Sherman Roads. This property is protected by a conservation easement through the Western Reserve Land Conservancy, which makes it available for passive park purposes only, such as hiking and picnicking. Pavilions were erected in 2006. The park was opened to the public in June 2009 and the trail system was dedicated in 2019. Fishing at the lake is permitted by catch and release.

 

The Foundation for Geauga Parks Explorers Series was established so park lovers may join us each month to explore a different park in Geauga County by boot, bike, paddle, or skis.
