My review is from the perspective of an amateur landscape/nature photographer.

The majority of the trail is typical Eastern US hardwood forest and there's no standout feature. The one exception is Beaver Pond. The pond/marsh was created by beavers and there's a nice boardwalk through it. It's a good spot to shoot a sunrise, photograph birds and look for the elusive beavers. ( I saw one while I was there). There's really now reason to any further along the trail.

If you are visiting the Cuyahoga Valley NP and are looking for wildlife or birds, go to the pond.

It’s easy. There’s not much to see. I guess you should do it once. Blah.
