Inscription.  
Since the 1800s, the Cuyahoga Valley has been a place where people from nearby cities relax in nature. Building on this tradition, locals worked tirelessly to preserve what is now Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Created in 1974, the park protects open countryside, a canal that helped build the nation, and the river that sparked the Clean Water Act.

Station Road Bridge Trailhead
Brecksville Station was once a loading point for outgoing milk and lumber. Now this area is a crossroads for rail passengers, hikers, cyclists, runners, paddlers, and horse riders. In spring and summer, this is a hotspot for birders who flock to see cerulean and yellow-throated warblers. Cross the historic Station Road Bridge for scenic views of the Cuyahoga River. Follow the towpath north about a half-mile to Lock 36’s ruins and the Mudcatcher beyond. Loop back via the trail along the river.
