The Medina County Chapter of the Ohio Horseman’s Council is a dedicated group of folks who join together for fun, riding, camping, volunteering on trails, staying informed on horse-related issues, and sponsoring quality events for horsemen. Since 1986, Medina Ohio Horseman’s Council (MOHC) members have helped fund, build, and maintain the horse trails in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Adopt-a-Trail volunteers help park staff maintain safe and well-groomed trails. They participate in trail "sweeps" by picking up litter, trimming branches, clearing culverts, and reporting trail conditions on their adopted trails. Find a schedule of trail sweeps below.
