Trail Guide to Cuyahoga Valley National Park 3rd Edition
- Softcover, 257 pages, 5.5 x 8.5 inches
- ISBN: 978-1-59851-040-9
The complete trail guide to Ohio's popular national park, written by people who know it best—the volunteers who help build and maintain its trails. Every trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park is described in detail, with specifics for hikers, cyclists, skiers, and horseback riders.
Featured are the historic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath, the Buckeye Trail, and favorite destinations such as Brandywine Gorge and Blue Hen Falls. You'll find many less-traveled trails, too, leading to hidden ponds, oak-canopied brooks, and quiet glades in all corners of the park.
Background information about the plants, animals, geology, and human history of the Cuyahoga Valley will help make your visit to the park more enjoyable—and more memorable. Easy-to-use maps help you plan and follow your route.
This is a fine year-round guide for hikers of all abilities—and great for bird watchers and other nature lovers, too.

About Cuyahoga Valley Trails Council
The Cuyahoga Valley Trails Council (CVTC) is a non-profit all-volunteer organization dedicated to building and maintaining trails in the Cuyahoga Valley. CVTC was formed in 1985 from the Ad Hoc Trails Committee of the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area (now named Cuyahoga Valley National Park) Advisory Commission just after the completion of the park's trail plan. Since its founding, CVTC has assisted Cuyahoga Valley National Park in implementing the trail plan by helping to build sections of new trail and maintain existing trails. The group holds monthly volunteer trail work sessions, helps coordinate the Adopt-A-Trail program, trains new volunteers, and encourages stewardship of the trail system.
