Even though this national park is located just a short distance from the urban areas of Cleveland and Akron, you will quickly discover that it actually feels worlds away. Its serene, natural setting along the Cuyahoga River offers many opportunities for outdoor activity spread across its 33,000 acres. These activities include hiking on the park’s 125 miles of trails (from flat and easy to challenging), biking, canoeing and kayaking and many others. The range and quality of activities is remarkable given that it is located only 30 minutes south of downtown Cleveland, and the quality is attested to by the 2.2 million visitors per year that choose to visit the park. An easy getaway that you will definitely not regret, Cuyahoga Valley is definitely worth a visit.
