Operating a motor vehicle is generally prohibited on trails within Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act however, persons with disabilities may use a "Other Power Driven Mobility Device (OPMD) such as an e-bike.
Disabled persons may use e-bikes rated at 1 horsepower or 750 watts, or similar OPMDs in areas open to pedestrian use wherever possible.
Until recently, the park required that disabled persons obtain a free permit prior to use on the trail. This requirement has been discontinued.
Disabled persons wishing to use an e-bike on the Towpath Trail may do so and there is no requirement to obtain a permit or otherwise explain the nature of their disability.
