Found this on a list of things to do near Mentor and were glad we did. Great stop to check out the Castle and the surrounding grounds were great. It would be a great spot for a picnic or a hike. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Great picnic spot on the east side. It is free and it is a dog friendly spot in Cleveland Ohio on THE EAST SIDE. A very neat stop in the East Side

Great place to hike, throw around a frisbee, or just sit back and relax. Inside the Metroparks so beautiful surroundings.

Combined a visit to the castle along with enjoying the bike paths in the area. The castle was just a 5-10 minute walk through, the grounds are well maintained and inviting for a picnic.

Yes, of course you can go inside. There aren't many rooms and there are stairs to go inside, but the whole structure is open and there aren't any doors.
