Trails Forever History & Accomplishments
NPS/ D.J. REISER
The Trails Forever initiative was founded in 2007 as a partnership between Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, as well as volunteers, trail advocates, and other trail partners. It is based on successful models from Acadia National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
To date, Trails Forever has accomplished many important milestones. In 2013 alone, park staff and community volunteers completed 244 individual maintenance projects. Collectively, 460 individual volunteers donated 8,733 hours to support these projects.
In addition, through funds generated by the Trails Forever Legacy Fund, the National Park Service purchased a trailer to haul tools, which is essential for maintenance projects along the trails, and hired a trails volunteer coordinator. Specific trail accomplishments include:
Even with all of these wonderful accomplishments, there is still work to be done. Click here for more information about supporting Trails Forever.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park's namesake river flows north and south. The Cuyahoga River begins its 100 mile journey in Geauga County, flows south to Cuyahoga Falls where it turns sharply north and flows through CVNP. American Indians referred to the U-shaped river as Cuyahoga or "crooked river."
