BRECKSVILLE, Ohio – Cuyahoga Valley National Park is extending a closure of the Buckeye Trail between Riverview Road in Boston Township and Snowville Road in Brecksville, including access to Blue Hen Falls, until November 5.

Crews are working when weather conditions allow. Updates will be posted on the park website. 

This closure is necessary for public safety. Please respect all closures.
