Horseshoe Lake

Horseshoe Lake top site within the Hitori Lakes system. It drains southbound into Horseshoe Bottom along with Hirt Lake through outflows via Mooney Creek (the outlet of Hirt Lake). The lake has Horsetail Pond for canoeing or kayaking, which can be accessed via the Coldspring Recreational Trailway.

Horseshoe Lake consists of 3 parts: The North end, Horseshoe Downstream, and Horsetail Pond. Horsetail Lake is part of Horseshoe Lake’s top site in Beachwood, United States.

The Horseshoe Lake area is a state-designated Area of Outstanding Horseshoe Lake top site. The lake property that makes up Horsetail Pond was once owned by the Kirtland family as part of their farm. It later became a retreat for missionaries from the nearby Chautauqua Institution, who used it for classes and seminars on missionary work out west (the mission field). This led to its present name: Horsetail Pond (Read more information about Horsetail lake here ). Today, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) manages the Horseshoe Lake area as a Horseshoe Lake top site in Beachwood, United States.

The Horseshoe Lake area is open to fishing, hunting, trapping, and hiking. A Horsetail Pond foot trail circles the pond, providing excellent views of the water and wildlife. The Horseshoe Creek Bike Trail also provides access to the lake and runs 3 miles between Akron-Peninsula Road (State Route 303) and Coldspring Road (Township Road 274). This trailhead offers ample parking, restrooms, and a pavilion. Visitors can enjoy picnicking, fishing for panfish, White suckerfish, and Brown trout, bird watching, or just relaxing by the creek. Hiking on the many trails in the area can also provide an opportunity to see deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife. Learn More Here
