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.

Boston Store Trailhead
Boston was once a bustling canal town with a lumberyard, brickyard, boatyards, and mills. Later it was a company town for a paper bag factory. Today, Boston is the heart of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Stop at the visitor center to plan your adventure. Hike a short distance north on the towpath and follow connecting trails about 2.5 miles to the 60-foot Brandywine Falls, a favorite park attraction. Walk or bike 2.3 miles south to historic Peninsula for dining and shopping.

[Caption:]
It is in the valleys that one can realize most effectively a sense of isolation and freedom from the sights and sounds…which go to make the modern city. Olmstead Brothers, Landscape architects who proposed a Cuyahoga Valley Park in 1925.
