Best Walking Trail

Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail -- Peninsula

If you want to explore the great outdoors without getting lost, head to Cuyahoga Valley National Park and hop on the Towpath Trail at Lock 29 Trailhead in Peninsula. From there, the trail takes a gentle, winding path through some beautiful forest areas and meadowland without straying too far from civilization. Signs and markers point out sites of historical interest. If you're lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of some of the animals who make their home there, including herons, frogs, and beavers.
