“Part of the Emerald Necklace: With paved trails totaling about 70 miles, the Emerald Necklace Trail is still one of the longer trail networks in the state. The Necklace extends about 61 miles across. Add the offshoot to the Big Creek Reservation and the mileage totals around 70. The Cleveland Metroparks that make up this system are called reservations and many are linked together to form the giant green (emerald) necklace shape, giving the trail system its unofficial name.”

“The raging waters of Rocky River that formed the Berea Falls are a piece of glacial history. Post-glacial river water found its way along the Berea sandstone, seeping through fissures and cracks to the soft shale below. As the shale eroded, the sandstone on top was undermined and began to break off. Those breaks in turn became the Berea Falls. Berea sandstone, named for exposures near the City of Berea, is the remains of ancient river deltas. This highly rated sandstone is world famous. Originally quarried at an early date for grindstones, it was also used in building, both locally and oversees. This rock put Berea, Ohio on the map.”
