Perkins & Riding Run Trails - CVNP

 

*Please read the hike description before deciding to attend. This is not a leisure hike. Thank you.*

We'll meet at the Everett Rd Covered Bridge Parking Lot at 10:30 a.m & hike approx. 6 miles with the outer loop.  *Please do not use the public directory or NPS address for Maps or GPS as you will end up on the wrong side of the river with no parking lot. The parking lot is near 2247 Everett Rd on the section north of the covered bridge that you can access ½ mile west of Riverview Rd.

This is a rugged trail with chunky and heavily-rooted sections as well as shallow stream crossings and mud or loose surfaces. Expect a moderate to strenuous hike due to frequent elevation changes including steep (short or lengthy) ups & downs dispersed with more gradual slopes.  In addition, we typically hike at a fairly brisk pace (approximately 3+ mph) which could increase the level of difficulty for some... A light variety in scenery includes hills, ravines, streams, pine trees, field, and both wide and narrow winding trail.  (Expect mud. :-)

*If you arrive after we've started hiking and would like to catch up, we'll be traveling counter-clockwise starting with Riding Run.

*Please check the maps below.  (& print a copy of the trail map to carry if you'd like to explore the trail at your own pace).

See you there!

    National Park keeps restrooms open despite tight budget
    Open restrooms are back on the menu of services at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, despite local budget cuts to offset automatic spending reductions that already have gone into effect.

    Now if they would only add air fresheners

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
