Virginia Kendall Ledges
No rock climbing is permitted. Please follow the rules to protect your self and the organisms that grow on the rocks.

Ice Box Cave
Bat Population Threatened: Ice Box Cave, located at Ritchie Ledges, is closed in an effort to slow the spread of white-nose syndrome (WNS), a fungal disease that has killed millions of bats in the northeastern and eastern U.S. and threatens our bat population in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. WNS is spread by bat-to-bat transmission and by humans transporting fungal spores on their shoes, clothes, and other gear from contaminated sites. Help slow the spread of WNS and reduce disturbance to bats by staying out of the cave. Please report any unusual bat activity, such as bats flying outside during the day in cold winter months or bats clustering near the entrance to the cave. Contact Park Dispatch at 440-546-5945.

For the most up-to-date information contact Boston Mill Visitor Center at 440-717-3890.

 

Park Improvements

Brandywine Falls Restroom Improvements
The Brandywine Falls Trailhead is one of the most visited and notable viewing areas in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. As visitation has increased over the years, the existing restrooms are not adequate for the public as they see constant use and require constant maintenance.

The project will remedy the current restroom issues by providing plumbed toilets with running water and a sanitary sewer treatment system.

Currently, and during construction, the park is offering port-a-johns to the visiting public. There are 5 port-a-johns at this location, 3 standard and 2 ADA accessible. They are currently serviced regularly.  If you see any issues, please call park dispatch at 440-546-5945.

For more information, visit Brandywine Falls Restroom Improvements.
