Create an itinerary including Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Cuyahoga Valley National Park follows the Cuyahoga River, allowing visitors to hike or bike one of the many trails that showcase the region's waterfalls, old canals, and forests. The Towpath Trail runs 33.5 km (21 mi) along ravines and past craggy boulders. As you pass what look like typical farms, you'll discover that sections along the trails are recreated 19th- and early 20th-century farmland growing crops from these eras. You'll see several city parks included in the protected lands, many of which have concert and event venues. To tour the park while saving your feet, consider a ride on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Facilities are available at either end of the trails, and a few restaurants and markets offer refreshments, but be sure to bring enough water for hike.

  • We visited the park for a weekend. We were able to go to the Boston Mills Visitor Center, hike to Brandywine Falls and the Canal Exploration Center. We also toured the park on the Cuyahoga Valley...

  • Awesome park, probably the best in Ohio. Lots of cool areas and different terrains. The coolest hike is probably the Ledges Trail with awesome rock cliffs. There is also waterfalls, picnic areas, and many trails. Look ahead where you want to hike so you park in the right area...it is a very big park. Definitely will be back many times.
  • This is the only National Park that we have in Ohio! What a natural beauty! Great for walking , running, biking, fishing, camping and picnicking!! There are several hiking trails throughout the park! No entrance fee!
