Cuyahoga Valley is very different from most national parks. Unlike Hot Springs, it at least can be considered a park. While not an urban park per se, it is the most accessible of all the national parks in the US. Cuyahoga is far from being a wilderness area. Unlike most national parks, there are farms, houses and two interstates which run through it. The parks has more significance as an historical park than as a natural park.
If I had to rate the parks I’ve visited on a ten point scale on how difficult they are to visit, Cuyahoga would rate a 1. It is an easy drive from Cleveland and Akron with major highways running through the park.
Exploring the park is pretty easy as it extends along the Cuyahoga River and there is a road which runs the length of the park.
