The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is a 51 mile railroad path through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The railway has been in operation as a scenic tour since the early 1970s, a decade after regular passenger service had ended. In their day, the Cuyahoga Valley and River were used as transportation corridors for American Indians, and then later by the early settlers. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park covers 33,000 acres of land, and is the only national park in Ohio.
The Scenic Railroad tours are a magnificent experience. You see the river, or cliffs rising up on the side, or dense, lush foliage. While aboard the train, you can put on headphones and listen to an audio tour of the valley. Learn about the history of the national park, stories of early settlers to the valley, and more. The audio tour uses GPS in order to entertain & enlighten you based on where along the railway you currently are.
Tickets for the Railroad are $12 apiece, and can be purchased here.
