Pretty park, need a lot of time
Sep 2021
We did not spend nearly enough time in this park. I really loved how easy it was to walk around in the old downtown type area. Lots of wide spaces for walking, bikes and strollers. Definitely a must-do if you have time.

Loved this park. Park Rangers we’re outside the Boston Mills Visitors to answer questions. We visited Brandywine falls, ledges trail and the beaver marsh. All were beautiful. Ledges trail is an absolute must see.
The park is a bit unusual because you have to drive in and out of the park to get to the different areas.
I’ll be back to visit again. Oh and this National Park is free to get into!

Make time to visit this beautiful park
Oct 2021
I didn’t know much about Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We went to spend the day and do a few hikes. The volunteer park ranger was very helpful in maximizing our day. We started with Brandywine Falls (a short hike to a beautiful waterfall), then did the Ledges hike (one of the coolest hikes we’ve done) and finished with the Beaver Marsh walk. We would have had time for another hike, but were tired. This national park is definitely worth a visit.

Short trip

We were only there for little while on the way home. It is a huge park. We were there on a Thursday and it was pretty crowded. I can't imagine what the weekends are like. We went to the Brandywine Falls. They have a very nice board walk.

Lovely park with good hiking and biking. Boston Mill Visitor Center had friendly, informative rangers. We were there on a September Tuesday and it wasn't crowded. Pleasant drive through the park.

Cool hike in the shade.
Sep 2021
We stayed at Oakwood Village and started on the south end of the park and worked our way up. We did Brandywine falls, the Ledges, and Bridal Veil Falls. The hike we did in Brandywine falls was over tree limbs and rocks and ended with us climbing stairs without rails. It was fun but we were sore after! The Ledges- you can do trails or walk across a field to see the overlook points. Bridal Veil Falls, we walked for 30 minutes and turned around and came back. There was a lot we didn't see because we were in town for a family wedding. Do your research about the difficulty of the hikes. People, much younger then us, were jogging those trails and the place is dog friendly. It seemed like most of the people walking had dogs.

Boston Mill Visitor Center Only
Sep 2021
Just drove through on I-80 and stopped at the visitor center to pick up a token. Definitely a pretty drive. The visitor center was an old train depot, and there is a train track right out front. Friendly staff, nice facility.

Lots of easy hiking. Most hikes are in the shade which makes it even easier. Honestly, pretty small NP. Could probably see almost everything in 2 days if you wanted. We visited on a Monday and Tuesday so we were unable to visit the train. Unfortunately the trail to Blue Hen Falls was under construction while we were there so we weren't able to see that either. Brandwine falls was very nice and it doesn't take that long to get there, as long as you can handle some stairs.

Great easy hiking trails
Sep 2021
Wonderful hiking trails = canal walk goes forever - waterfalls were nice event though there had not been recent rainfall.

It is a very long park - and driving has you in and out of the park proper most of the time. Not like a self-contained park. We only did the north 1/2 and it took the better part of a day - great places for picnics.

Hiking gem.
Sep 2021
This national park seems to be a patchwork quilt of spaces along the Cuyahoga River and the Erie Canal. As there was no camping available we stayed in a KOA RV park in nearby Streetsboro. We spent two delightful days in the park hiking various trails. The highlight though was a ride on the Steam Engine from Akron into the park and back.
