Cuyahoga Valley National Park receives funding for second phase of mountain bike trail

A month ago, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park announced that the National Park Service has awarded funding for the second phase of the East Rim off-road bicycle and hiking trail in the national park.

The National Park Service will contribute $183,400 of federal funds, and the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park will match that with $198,700 provided through a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation for CVNP mountain bike trail development. This project is just one more way that the Conservancy for CVNP's TRAILS FOREVER Fund leverages support for our national park!

This gift will go toward the 6-mile second phase of the trail. The first 2.3-mile phase is scheduled to begin construction this summer and is currently in the early stages of implementation.

Together, these trails will form the first off-road biking trails in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The new system of trails will be constructed on the central-eastern edge of the park, flanking both sides of the Ohio Turnpike
