Trails Forever

Trails Forever_285 size
Trails Forever engages individuals to help the National Park Service and the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park restore, maintain, and enhance the trails of Cuyahoga Valley National Park—for all time, for all people.
 

CVNP Trail System
As one of the major features of the national park, CVNP's trail system deserves to be around forever—but it needs help. Erosion, encroaching vegetation, and increased use threaten the quality of the trails that you love so much. Funding from the National Park Service alone isn't enough to accomplish necessary maintenance.

Want to make sure the trails of CVNP are still around for the next generation? Here's how you can help.
