Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is located within a one-hour drive of the four million people in the greater Cleveland/Akron/Canton metropolitan area. Some 250 historic structures, including residential and farming properties, are located in the park, in addition to the nationally significant Ohio & Erie Canal and the Valley Railway. Protection of NPS-owned historic properties continues with a focus on rehabilitating historic structures and the railroad, and the restoration of disturbed areas. The natural resources of the park include a remarkable and thriving wildlife population in an urban area where development continuously reduces the amount of available open space. The park offers visitors over 140 miles of hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding trails. Visitor services include the Boston Store Visitor Center and the Canal Exploration Center, a new attraction for in-depth canal experience and learning. In addition to regular public interpretive programs, the park also offers focused educational programs, including the Junior Ranger Program, the residential Environmental Education Center, and a strong school services program. Each winter the park hosts the Ohio Special Olympics and the Towpath Marathon.
