Towpath Reflections by Kay Wuske
Visitor Update - On weekdays in January, the Towpath is closed from Station Road Bridge Trail to 2,500 feet north of Station Road.
Brecksville, Ohio – The National Park Service (NPS) has temporarily closed the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) from the Station Road Trailhead for approximately 2,500 feet north along the Towpath Trail beginning now through late January. The closure is in effect Monday through Friday only from 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. during the closure period. No detour is provided.
The closure is needed to repair erosion and prevent further degradation at that location on the Towpath Trail. Please respect the closure and plan your visit to the park safely by using different sections of the Towpath Trail during the closure times.
CVNP encompasses 33,000 acres along the Cuyahoga River between Cleveland and Akron, Ohio. Managed by the National Park Service, CVNP combines cultural, historical, recreational, and natural activities in one setting. For more information visit www.nps.gov/cuva or call 330-657-2752.
