historic site

This park along the Cuyahoga River has waterfalls, hills, trails, and displays about early rural living. The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail follows the Ohio and Erie Canal, where mules towed canal boats. The park has numerous historic homes, bridges, and structures.

Awesome hike with a great loop around Brandywine falls and the gorge itself.

If you get to the meadow, you’ve gotten off trail. I saw another review that said once you get to the meadow it gets confusing/is no signage. I made the same mistake while talking and hiking, just flying through.

Great trail. Short and an easy loop, but the inclines are nice and the few rock ledges are great for taking a rest and looking over the gorge. I take pups there AFTER we’ve gone for relatively long hike to cool off.

Very beautiful trail, only thing is it was very muddy and a couple trees fell on the path.

Great trail that changes scenery pretty often. Would recommend going counter clockwise when you get to the loop about .5 miles or so from the trailhead.

Love the scenic view, great hike/workout!

Clean, beautiful trail. Perfect in the fall.

Nice forrest surrounding. Very flat, lots of trail runners. Large parking area and restrooms. Caves currently closed for nesting bats. Great fall foliage views from overlook.

Recommend going after some rain! Falls were impressive after 3 days of rain. Large parking area and bathrooms at trail head.

Well marked trail to two great waterfalls. We went after a heavy rain and they were flowing! Expect to get your shoes a bit wet if its been raining crossing the stream. Dog friendly and they loved it! Partially paved to Blue Hen falls which is only about .25 miles from parking.

Of all of Cuyahoga Valley, this is one of my favorites ... the blue hen falls is a 5 minute walk from the parking lot and is not difficult ; to get to buttermilk is a more strenuous hike as its more of a natural path.

Quick and easy hike with great scenery.

Very pretty and lots of elevation changes! Is there a gun range nearby, though?

great hike. some challenging hills.

Very good hike, beautiful views and long hike. Would definitely recommend and go again.

Very fun trail, buckeye trail had some challenging hills for a novice, but the waterfalls were well worth it!

Great hike! Easily one of our top favorites in CVNP. A must see!!

Nice trail, good warmup for the 5 mile trail next to it. Easy trail if you compare to others nearby but still fun. Lots of rock jumps. Trail changes directions daily.

Nice trail with great views! Marked wonderfully.

Fun trail! Very confusing to get to the falls but hike back was super easy! You do cross the creek and can be slippery, highly recommend waterproof hiking boots with great traction.

I enjoyed this route. we ended up hiking down the stream most of the way and made this a loop by finding a rdige trail that met up with the buckeye trail to get back to blue hen. was a lovely hike.

Easy hike! Great for an afternoon away!
