CVNP Hike Aboard Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Boston Store Visitor Center

Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad are offering this unique opportunity to board the train and hike back along the challenging Buckeye Trail. The Fee for the Train ride is only $3.00 today, normally it costs $18.00 for adults, so this is a real discount.  The train leaves promptly at 11:25 a.m., I have scheduled this meetup for 11:00 to allow time to purchase tickets, I will be contacting the railroad to see if we can purchase tickets ahead of time, or if we must wait until that day.


The CVNP fall schedule says that this will be a 5.6 mile hike back.

I will call on 9/3/13 to get more details, and will post 

Recommend bringing water, a light snack, bug spray and spare cash (in case there is anything on the train you wish to buy or at the train stations).

Recommend wearing long pants, a cool long sleeve shirt, a hat and hiking boots.

    Be sure to bring a camera, we should get to see one of the largest steam locomotives still in operation, the NKP 765, as it is suppose to be running on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad on Sunday.

    I called the Cuyahoga Scenic Railroad, and they said that they do not take reservations for the Hike Aboard. They also do not sale tickets, I was told that we will pay $3.00 cash as we board the train. Train can hold up to 300 people. Train will take us North from the Boston Mills stop at the Boston Visitor Center to the Jaite station, Vaugh Road area and we will be hiking back south along the Buckeye Trail. I was also told the train will leave prompting at 11:25 so I highly recommend planning to arrive early.

    If this hike goes well with this hike, they are also offering another Hike Aboard on October 27 with a different departure site and that hike is listed as 7 miles.
