Description

The complete guide to every trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, for hikers, cyclists, skiers, equestrians, birders, and all nature lovers …

This complete trail guide to Ohio’s popular national park was created 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-travelled 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.
