Cuyahoga Valley National Park hiking and camping


Cuyahoga Valley National Park waterfalls

Above: Four hardy souls wade in the sometimes-clear sometimes-muddy pool at the bottom of the falls. We stare down at them. How cold is the water, I wonder?

Cuyahoga Valley waterfalls

Above: Once on the trails we see tiny birds, little striped faced chipmunks, and a dead dark brown rough haired woodchuck. Long legged spiders crawl over the trail and up onto heavy downed forty foot long trees. It’s cool in the dark forest.
