Cuyahoga Valley National Park

With the sprawling surroundings of farmlands, forests, cascading waterfalls, and rolling hills along the twisting Cuyahoga River, this national park in Ohio is brimming with endless Instagram-worthy views.

Camping, hiking, biking, history

Sandwiched between Cleveland and Akron on the eastern fringes of the built-up Midwest, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park is something of an unexpected bout of wilderness in the Buckeye State. It might only be 35,000 acres big, but there are stirring moments to be had: When there’s a rust-red morning glow amid the fall-time hickory forests; when the wildflowers bloom between the gushing falls of Brandywine Creek in summer. A rich Native American history and the 21-mile Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail are both top draws.
