A short trip from Cleveland, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio’s only National Park, provides solitude and great outdoor recreation. The Cuyahoga River, “crooked river”, winds through the park, surrounded by lush forest and gently rolling hills. There are over 125 miles within the park for visitors to hike, and multiple trails to bike. The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail follows the historic canal and offers a lovely bike route. Park visitors can hop on a train and take an excursion through the park on the scenic railroad tour.

Come to find refuge from the urban lifestyle or to find a new appreciation for the state of Ohio!
