Akron Falls Park: Conservation Trail Professional Review and Guide
"If you don’t live in northeastern Erie County, you may never have come across this agreeable little park on the banks of Murder Creek. Legend has it that in the early 1800s, several murders took place here in a single night: A family became unsuspecting victims of a desperate officer named Sanders, an Indian man named Gray Wolf died defending a young native woman from this crazed officer, and Sanders died of wounds inflicted by Gray Wolf. The story differs depending on who tells it, but the event gave the creek its name. This easy amble along Murder Creek in Akron begins with a waterfall viewpoint, and continues on the edge line between developed land and wilderness."
