Cuyahoga Valley: Changes In Transportation -2011; CVNP Staff.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) sits in the middle of a well-worn traveling route. The geography of the Cuyahoga Valley creates a naturally level corridor that runs north and south through a hilly landscape. For centuries travelers have taken advantage of the valley's pathway on foot, canoe, horse, canal boat, train, and interstate highway. Today four kinds of transport can still be seen side-by-side in the park: river, canal, railroad, and road. The page includes eight short movies in Shockwave format.
