South Chagrin is just up the road from another great park, North Chagrin Reservation. South Chagrin is home to an arboretum, Squaw Rock, and a ton of trails to walk or hike on. If you like exercise there is a fitness trail, all purpose trial, and wooded trails. You can spend a few hours or the whole day here.
We came here on a hot summer day to do some hiking. We did two short trails, one of which included a water hike that led to a small waterfall. We were with five kids aged 6-16, and everyone had a wonderful time.

Squaw rock area is really wonderful to see. The rest of the trails are nice too, and even though they are mostly well marked, they could use some additional markers.
Wonderful route from North Chagrin through South Chagrin onto Bedford Reservation and down to the Ohio Canal. Especially when the colors are changing. Slow leisurely ride with no pressure. Does need a few more spots to pull over, take a picture and just enjoy the view!
Nice hills and places to picnic or use the playgrounds for kids. We used to live close to the reservation so it was great to walk on the paved paths again.
Part of the Cleveland-Akron area Emerald Necklace and parks system. Well maintained and has something for people of all ages as well as picnic, physical fitness and other facilities.
Great place for woods walks along the Chagrin River. I have been coming here for decades and appreciate getting in tune with the natural forest.
