You can make a great trip out of this park for at least two days. We loved it and here are my suggestions: Day One- Go to the Rockside Station with your bike and load it on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Ride to Peninsula or Akron and ride back on the towpath across the park. It's only 14 miles... More

Not as peaceful as National Park should be. Major highways and roads go through it. It's nice to stop and stretch your legs whenever you are passing through and I am glad we did not make a special trip

Great small park in a beautiful setting. Perfect for 3 to 4 days of activities depending on how much you want to do. We hikes many trails, saw some great waterfalls, biked along the river and generally enjoyed the park. A park feeling, but just miles from restaurants, shopping etc. I loved it. You must do the Ledges Trail if... More

We stopped at Brandywine Falls, which had a nice walking trail along a boardwalk that gave us great views of the falls. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

Free tickets for VETS and our families. Took a nephew 4 years old and the surprise look when he saw Santa come on the train and picked him up he loved it and was so excited when the train went thru a north pole decoration.

Why is this a national park? Yes there are couple of nice waterfalls. Too close to major highways - not really peaceful.

This was a nice park close to Dayton. The movie at the Boston Store VC gave a good history of this Park. The Brandywine Falls, near the Boston Store VC, was not difficult to get to. The views were not spectacular compared to, say, Niagara Falls, but if this is all they have in the area... It was not difficult... More
