Cuyahoga Valley – a Spot to Visit in Ohio
Located just south of Cleveland, Ohio, Cuyahoga Valley National Park was established as a National Recreation Area in 1974. In 2000 it was designated a National Park. Different from most National Parks, Cuyahoga Valley preserves a rural setting in an urban environment.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park preserves and reclaims the rural landscape along the Cuyahoga River between Akron and Cleveland in Northeast Ohio. The 20,339.22-acre (8,230.99 ha; 31.78 sq mi) park is the only national park in Ohio. Cuyahoga means “crooked river” in Mohawk, which is part of the Iroquoian language family.
Many visitors spend their time hiking or bicycling the park’s many trails which visit its numerous attractions, including the crushed limestone along portions of the 20-mile (32.2 km) Towpath Trail, following a former stretch of the 308-mile (495.7 km) Ohio and Erie Canal.
