There are over 125 miles of hiking trails in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. These trails range from nearly-level to more challenging, and pass through various habitats including woodlands, wetlands, and old fields. Some trails require you to cross streams with stepping stones or log bridges, while others, including the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, are nearly level and are accessible to all visitors. A portion of the state-wide Buckeye Trail also passes through the park. Ask a ranger at Boston Mill Visitor Center about borrowing hiking poles to use in the park. Hiking poles are available on a first come, first served basis.

Visit our Maps page for maps of the park and of certain trail areas. Several books, leaflets, and maps, including Trail Guide: Cuyahoga Valley National Park, 3rd Edition, contain helpful information about hiking in the park. This book is published by the Cuyahoga Valley Trails Council and is available for purchase at Boston Mill Visitor Center.
