Cuyahoga Valley National Park
A half-hour south of Cleveland, the 33,000-acre Cuyahoga Valley National Park includes spectacular rock formations and waterfalls, 160 miles of trails, golf courses and a living-history settlement. Established as a recreation area in the 1970s to battle urban sprawl, Cuyahoga is now one of the nation's most accessible national parks (800/445-9667; nps.gov/cuva). The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad travels through the park (800/468-4070; cvsr.com).
