The southern section of the Emerald Necklace is an amazing resource for all fans of spring foliage..
The largest of the Cleveland Metroparks, Brecksville Reservation bills itself as "a study of contrasts," from its oak-hickory forests to its flat floodplain cottonwoods, willows and sycamores. The park is divided by seven glacier-formed gorges, each of which has a distinct variety of soil and sunlight conditions to foster plant growth.
Flowers by the Mile
The reservation has an excellent, extensive system of trails, including a 12-mile section of the Buckeye Trail. Brecksville Metros naturalist David Dvorak recommends starting with the Nature Center, as it is adjacent to a clearly labeled, easy-to-walk wildflower trail and can provide maps for longer hikes. What you'll see, he says, may include some rare foliage--it all depends on how much the deer have missed. And remember, no picking!
