Help Make the Cuyahoga River an Ohio Water Trail
The Cuyahoga River is a symbol of efforts to clean up America’s waterways.
Famous for catching fire, the Cuyahoga is now sparking excitement. Wildlife and people are returning. The proposed Cuyahoga River Water Trail will take advantage of new opportunities and create the lasting legacy of the rejuvenation of the Cuyahoga River.
Together, we will:
- Increase public access to and along the Cuyahoga River for all people.
- Share resources to create better and safer experiences for visitors.
- Enjoy the health and beauty of the Cuyahoga River.
- Boost tourism and economic development in nearby communities.
