“Easy biking”
Review of Towpath Bike

Perfect for mountain bikes - much is in good enough shape for road bikes. If you time it well, you can catch the train one way at the beginning or end of your ride for $3.

It is possible to bike over 50 miles on this partially paved trail! The trail goes from heavily forested areas to open areas that might have great views of the river, to several places to stop along the way. You can stop at a fresh food market, the Boston Store, an ice cream shop, a museum, or even board a train with your bike on Wednesdays-Sundays! (small fee)
Bike rentals are available in Peninsula.You will find people are friendly on the trails whether biking or walking!

So many nature things to see and photograph as you ride the trail. It is very relaxing and a very easy ride.

As part of the over 100 mile Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath, Cuyahoga Valley National Park comprises about 22 miles of the system with a mostly crushed limestone pathway true to the original following the Cuyahoga River. Lots of trailheads with good parking at most and it is mostly 8' wide leaving room for walkers, runners, bikes and yes, even horses!

A must see section is the Beaver Marsh. Park at Ira Road Trailhead and go North less than a half of a mile. Lots of birds, snapping turtles, Blue Herons, bass, river otters and at either dawn or dusk the stars of the show: the beavers. Frequently there is a volunteer there to give you the history and answer questions. This used to be a car salvage yard???

With the Sequester cutting back Park activities it may be a little harder to find the stamps for your National Park Passport but try anyway. There are over 11 different stamps.

You can't beat Free.

Great way to see this small park! We parked at one end, biked to the other, then loaded our bikes on the train and rode back to our car.
