North Chagrin Reservation fitness trail gets needed improvements

The fitness trail stations at Cleveland Metroparks' North Chagrin Reservation have been receiving some much-needed attention in recent weeks.

The wood chips around several of the stations had worn away to the point that the dirt turned into mud every time it rained, making the equipment unusable for days at time unless you had a good pair of boots. An enterprising exerciser even put down some sticks near the parallel bars as a makeshift bridge.

But it's all good now. The dirt areas have been filled in so water has a chance to run off instead of pooling up.

Also, the chin-up bar was raised about a foot. Previously, anyone 5-foot-10 or taller could grab the bar without leaving the ground, thus taking the pull out of pull-up.

Props to the Metroparks for fixing things up.
