I have hiked the buckeye trail cvnp section many many times and the section between Boston and Peninsula is probobly the easiest and has the best views. Just have to imagine and pretend that the turnpike is not there in at one of the valley overlook spots along the way. I usually don't take the towpath back to Boston from Peninsula just do an out and back and it's a nice day hike through the valley. If you have a buddy with you you can always grab a cold drink at the Winking lizard in Peninsula before you head back too or grab a pint of Mitchell's ice cream from the trail mix store in Peninsula on a hot day and then head back to Boston.

We took the O & E Canal Trail south from the Boston Visitor Center and did a relatively short loop out on the Buckeye Trail, taking it back to the Cuyahoga River and the Towpath. There were several very nice views of the valley along the way.

Very nice place. Trail is well marked but overgrown in some places and very muddy in others. Only complaint was the massive amount of Mosquitos. Lots of challenging but doable hills, nice scenic ravines, a very good mix of all of what Ohio nature has to offer.
