Buckeye Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Upgraded from national recreation area to national park in 2000, Cuyahoga Valley National Park straddles a 22-mile north–south section of the Cuyahoga River between Cleveland and Akron. Tracing a line right down the center of it all is a section of the statewide Buckeye Trail (BT). For a relatively long and secluded hike in this popular park, tackle the BT from Red Lock and hike to the historic town of Boston, then return on the canal towpath. Stop at the popular Blue Hen and Buttermilk Falls along the way.With more than 125 miles of trails, Cuyahoga Valley National Park is one Ohio's premier hiking areas. Add a well-developed outdoor adventure infrastructure, and you can easily spend several days or longer discovering all the nooks and crannies of this lush greenway."
