We didn't have a lot of time to spend in Cuyahoga, but what we experienced was really wonderful. 1. The park rangers were super helpful and informative and helped us make the most of our short visit. 2. The park itself (at least what we saw) is breathtaking. 3. The park is super accessible from I-80 (just a couple of minutes from the off ramp. I highly recommend this park. Ohio is so lucky to have it.

Delia at the Akron station is an amazing individual!!! We put the wrong address in our GPS and by the time we got to the right station the train had already left. We we were very disappointed as we drove 6 hours to get here and Delia was so kind and drove us to the next station so we can enjoy the whole trip. What great customer service when an amazing person to go above and beyond like that for complete strangers who she doesn't know.  it was not during her hours of working she was already off of work and just did us this very nice kindness.

A beautiful, quiet, historical, oh-so-green destination. Surrounded by incredible limestone rock formations with secret passageways and pictures carved into the rock faces. Kids and adults alike love coming to hike the trails and hand-hewn rock steps. Follow the path to Ice Box Cave, and feel nature's air conditioning on the lowest section of the trail. The trails are well maintained and you get a good workout as you hike up and down various hills and stepped areas. After your exhilarating hike, drive about 8 minutes west on Rt. 303 and enjoy some delicious, home made ice cream at Country Maid Ice Cream.

This park is absolutely beautiful!! Make sure you go off trail a little bit because your allowed to go down in the water you can start at the opposite end of falls and work your way up to the falls and the water only goes up to your ankles (unless they're had heavy rains recently) your not allowed to play in the falls though there's a cut off point I believe for when you have to get back on the trail. The trail on the one side is dirt and tree roots and the other side is a steep road but with lots of potholes. But it's so worth the trip

Nice place for those who loves mountains, caves. No, unfortunately you cant climb and cave is closed, still you can enjoy the view as walking through one of the trails. I loved it! You can see Gods almighty in these layers of stones, the tree's roots which were able to break huge stones, some of the stones look smooth and roundish, like somebody worked on it, some looks, like somebody cut and separate it like 2 pieces of bread, it is amazing to see all those little corridors and holes. At the beginning they have clean bathroom.Parking is free.
