Though a short distance from the urban environments of Cleveland and Akron, Cuyahoga Valley National Park seems worlds away. The winding Cuyahoga—the "crooked river" as named by American Indians—gives way to deep forests, rolling hills, and open farmlands. The park is a refuge for flora and fauna and provides recreation and solitude for visitors.

The multi-purpose Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail was developed by the National Park Service and is the major trail through Cuyahoga Valley National Park. From it you can make connections to many of the natural and historic sites in the park and to other trails that intersect it along the way.

Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center:

Recognized as one of the top environmental education centers in the U.S., Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center provides innovative education programs that offer children the opportunity to discover the wonders and magic of learning in and about the outdoors. Resident programs and summer camps emphasize hands-on learning with a focus on creativity, exploration, and discovery and align with the State of Ohio’s academic content standards.

Currently, our educational programs serve over 9,000 students each year. The river and its watershed provide a framework for discovering the natural and cultural history of the valley, exploring the natural resources of the area, monitoring water quality and examining local environmental issues. Students learn about other rivers in the world and discover that environmental issues have global as well as local consequences. Opportunities abound for creative exploration and expression as learning includes the arts, creative writing, and teamwork.
