Photographers love to take photos from the Station Road Bridge. When the Cuyahoga River is relatively calm, its water reflects the graceful concrete arches that carry Route 82 overhead. With a bit of planning, shutterbugs can also catch Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad rolling through the arches to Brecksville Station. For runners and cyclists, the station’s drinking fountain is a magnet that draws people passing through on the Towpath Trail or heading into Brecksville Reservation. In spring and early summer, birders fan out in search of nesting bald eagles or migrating cerulean warblers. Warmer weather also attracts paddlers to the Cuyahoga River Water Trail.

Hands-on exhibits near the trailhead describe the river’s remarkable recovery since the infamous 1969 fire in Cleveland. Use the links below to plan your visit and learn about the region’s transportation and environmental history.
