This afternoon the National Park Service closed the entire Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park due to excessive flooding. The bicycle rentals at our Peninsula store are suspended until the Towpath is re-opened by the NPS.
The trail closure includes associated parking lots from Lock 39 Trailhead in Independence to Botzum Trailhead in Akron.
Please check www.nps.gov/cuva in advance of traveling to the park for updates. The NPS also asks everyone to please respect all park closures for the safety of visitors, resource, and park staff. Please do not drive through moving water or designated closed areas.
