The East Rim Trail project is another example of a strong partnership between the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park (Conservancy), National Park Service (NPS), and community organizations. For this project, the Conservancy and NPS are working closely with the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA) to create a world-class mountain bike trail for Ohio’s national park. Together, we’ve developed a strong partnership in the development and construction of the East Rim Trail project.
