Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Say WAT – Cuyahoga Valley National Park was first established as a national recreation area in 1974 and was then re-designated as a national park in 2000. The park is rich in history. The park sits between Akron and Cleveland in Ohio, includes 87 miles of the Ohio and Erie Canal, and has had over12,000 years of human occupation.

Park Points

Size and Vibe: Covering only 50.89 square miles, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park offers rivers, grasslands, forests, wetlands, and agricultural lands within its borders. Elevations in the park range from 590 feet to 1,164 feet above sea level.

The river, known as the “river that burned,” runs 100 miles in the park. The notorious Cuyahoga River has been a massive influence in the shaping and changing of the valley.
