Lorain County Metro Parks Beaver Creek Trail

HZW successfully assisted Lorain County Metro Parks by Completing the environmental studies for the Beaver Creek Trail Phase IB, located in the City of Amherst, Lorain County, Ohio.  The trail, to be built in summer and fall 2017, will extend the section of trail known as Phase IA.  It runs near the Mercy Health & Recreation Center, 47160 Hollstein Drive in the City of Amherst.  The new section will run about 3,500 feet north of the recreation center along the wooded slopes of an unnamed tributary of Beaver Creek.  The last 350 feet will be on an elevated boardwalk ending in an observation deck overlooking Beaver Creek.
