“Outdoor Beauty No Matter What the Season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

We visit CVNP regularly to walk the many trails, bike the towpath, ski at Boston Mills or Brandywine ski resorts, eat at the restaurants in Peninsula or visit shops there, golf at Brandywine Country Club (open to public). Since it is located in northeast Ohio the scenery changes with the seasons and is consistently beautiful. Can count on seeing many different types of wildlife here. This is truly a jewel of the area which also has the MetroPark system which is also gorgeous.

“Excellent for hiking and camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

We are lucky to have a National Park in our own back yard.

This park has it all - hiking, camping, a railroad, ledges, everything!

“Nice hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2014

My friends and I did the loop around the waterfall (we were following the instructions for a quest). Navigated a few steep hills, but enjoyed it. The scenery was pretty. Enjoyed a stop by the river and the waterfall at the end :) Afterwards we took another trail, but it followed the road for a bit and ended after a mile or so due to a closure (not sure what was being worked on exactly). The park is close to home, so that was convenient. I wouldn't recommend this for an experienced hiker tho - might be disappointing - at least the parts that I saw. Great for beginners or those looking for an easy hike! Or for bike riders (there were several on the path along the road).

“Nice Park--but National Status?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

We spent a fall afternoon at the Cuyahoga National Park recently. We visited Brandywine Falls and the Ledges hiking trail. It is a nice park, but as other people have mentioned in their reviews, it winds in and out of the towns and neighborhoods around it, and we feel that we have many areas in our local Metroparks system that are just as enjoyable. The train ride might be fun and bikers love the Towpath Trail, but I am not sure we would make a special visit again unless we were in the area for another reason.

“Loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2014

We spent a beautiful fall day in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. There is much to see and lots of hiking trails to enjoy. The history of the area was very interesting to us.
