Feet of Climbing
Depart from Solon (easy parking) and head northeast to the historic Sutliff Bridge, a three-span Parker truss design originally built in 1898. The flood of 2008 washed away one span, but the bridge was restored and now provides a unique way for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the Cedar River and enjoy the view. Pro tip: Leave some time for a refreshing break at Baxa’s Tavern at the bridge—cash only! On your return, you might want to take an extra spin around the center of Solon to check out the growing number of restaurants and watering holes.
