As of October 2019, the park began allowing the use of class 1 and 2 e-bikes where traditional bikes are allowed, except for the mountain bike trails, for all people. Under the new policy, they may be used in pedal mode only, no use of throttle.
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act however, persons with disabilities may use an "Other Power Driven Mobility Device" (OPMD) such as an e-bike.
Persons with disabilities may use e-bikes rated at 1 horsepower or 750 watts (generally class 1 or 2), or similar OPMDs in areas open to pedestrian use wherever possible.
People with disabilities using OPMD may do so without needing to obtain a permit or otherwise explain the nature of their disability.
Cuyahoga Valley does have a 15 mph speed limit on all bicycle trails with a limit of 5 mph in blind curves and while crossing bridges and boardwalks.
