Having been to many other National Parks, this one didn’t meet my expectations. It centers around the Ohio Erie Canal towpath and is interspersed with some communities and large highways. There was some decent hiking but there are no remote areas. The park rangers were...More

This national park does not disappoint. We went on a snowy and cold afternoon. It is awesome. Like all national parks it is well designed and maintained. The falls trail is a must do. Even if you just park and walk down. Excellent.

This is a national park inside a town...pretty nice model, just take care not get off the trail or you'll end up in private property. I'm not a biker ... I like mountains, so this park even though it's gorgeous, didn't feed my adventure bug....More

Sorry, I don't know. I live about 15 miles from the park and get there via back roads on my MC. The town of Hudson is a few miles east of the park and would likely have options.
