Accessibility

Learn and Explore

We strive to remove barriers and create fun experiences for everyone. 

 

Cuyahoga Valley offers things to do that suit a wide variety of interests. There are accessible ways to enjoy almost every popular activity. We hope you Find Your Park here. 

It helps to understand our basic geography. The national park is a skinny green space between two cities—with Cleveland, Ohio to the north and Akron to the south. Four routes run through the valley’s flat bottomland, connecting us to these cities. People can paddle the Cuyahoga River, hike or bike the Towpath Trail, ride Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, and drive America’s Byway. A network of otherroads and trails branch up the valley walls to the highlands on either side. If you have limited mobility,the trails through the steep ravines are the least accessible. Fortunately, we have lots of other options.
