9000 Chippewa Creek Drive
Brecksville, OH, 44141
From the oak-hickory forests on the ridge tops to the cottonwoods, willows and sycamores of Chippewa Creek's flat floodplain, Brecksville Reservation is a study of contrasts. The reservation is deeply cut by seven distinct gorges, which have a wide variety of soil and sunlight conditions, fostering the growth of rare, unusual and endangered plants. Chippewa Creek, in the northern section of the reservation, flows through a remarkable gorge that was left behind by the glaciers that once covered this area. Home to Brecksville Nature Center, the reservation has an excellent and extensive system of trails, including a section of the Buckeye Trail.
