Headwaters Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Up until 1932, picnickers enjoyed summer afternoons in the ravine al ng the East Branch Cuyahoga River. Then the City of Akron bought the land and flooded it to create the East Branch Reservoir as a water supply impoundment. Twenty-plus years later, city officials opened the land around the lake as a park. That became Headwaters Park. It’s got a lot to offer. The 420-acre lake is open to fishing for largemouth bass, northern pike, crappies, bluegills, and catfish, though shore access is limited to certain areas for the purpose of controlling erosion."
