Great small park in a beautiful setting. Perfect for 3 to 4 days of activities depending on how much you want to do. We hikes many trails, saw some great waterfalls, biked along the river and generally enjoyed the park. A park feeling, but just miles from restaurants, shopping etc. I loved it. You must do the Ledges Trail if... More

We stopped at Brandywine Falls, which had a nice walking trail along a boardwalk that gave us great views of the falls. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

Free tickets for VETS and our families. Took a nephew 4 years old and the surprise look when he saw Santa come on the train and picked him up he loved it and was so excited when the train went thru a north pole decoration.

Why is this a national park? Yes there are couple of nice waterfalls. Too close to major highways - not really peaceful.

This was a nice park close to Dayton. The movie at the Boston Store VC gave a good history of this Park. The Brandywine Falls, near the Boston Store VC, was not difficult to get to. The views were not spectacular compared to, say, Niagara Falls, but if this is all they have in the area... It was not difficult... More

The Cayuhoga National Park is a great place to enjoy the day and learn some history too. There is a lot to explore and take in. You can learn about the Ohio to Erie canal and how things were so many years ago. There are nice waterfalls and natural beauties to see as well. Highly recommended.

We had great weather for hiking and did lots of it! The fall colors were beautiful and it wasn't terribly packed. The train tickets were sold out by 10:30 a.m. It was a nice place to visit but nothing super special compared to the other National Parks we have visited.

This park has a lot of interesting things to see and do. We enjoyed the waterfalls, tow path trail, visitor centres, and the historic train ride from Rockside Station to Akron. Our three day visit was time well spent.

My 11 year old granddaughter and myself have been visiting as many of the National Parks as we can with my parks pass this year. We took a trip to Utah and did the grand circle plus some extra parks such as Mesa Verde and The Grand Canyon. We live in Pittsburgh so we were excited there was a National... More
