Modes of Transportation

Cuyahoga Valley National Park has many easy access points along its 22-mile stretch. Considering it sits snugly between Cleveland and Akron, visitors can come in by plane at either Cleveland International Hopkins Airport or the Akron/Canton Airport. Amtrak and Greyhound also have stops a few miles away from the park.

The nearest highways are I-77, I-80 (Ohio Turnpike), I-71, and I-90. Boston Mills Road is the main street that leads right into the park and towards the information center. For those who are coming in from out of town and need public transportation, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority has many bus lines that run fairly close to the park. Rental car and cab services are also available throughout the city.

Inside the Park

Depending on your mood, you can walk, hike, jog, or bike your way through the park. In addition, certain areas are reserved for horseback riding. The Towpath Trail is a great way to experience all of nature’s beauty as you make your way through the Cuyahoga Valley River. All of the popular points throughout the park are wheelchair friendly. Bike rental shops are also scattered throughout the city nearby for your convenience.
