The Government Shutdown is OVER! Come ride the Towpath Trail!

Thankfully, the government shutdown has finally ended! The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is now re-opened to visitors, including the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. As you can see the barricades have been removed from the Lock 29 Trailhead (photo above), and there's plenty of parking available! Our bicycle rental service in Peninsula is now open for business!

Our "All Hail the Ale!" Night Ride on the Towpath Trail will go on as planned this Saturday, October 19! Help us celebrate Cleveland Beer Week by coming dressed as your favorite beer! Anyone in costume is eligible to win door prizes (drawings begin at 7:30pm), and the crowd will vote a grand prize winner for best costume! See for full details and schedule of events.

The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is up and running again, and you can enjoy their Bike Aboard! service; $3 gets you a one-way ride between any two train stations with your bicycle.

We'd like to extend our thanks to the National Park Service rangers and staff. These LOCAL employees worked through the night to remove the cones and barriers, and had everything re-opened by this morning.
