I visited this April 2018, and it was really raging from all the rains. First time I have ever been there, and it was beautiful. It is very accessible for walking. There is a boardwalk and an upper & lower deck. I did not do the loop...just visited the falls. If you love waterfalls...this is a must see. 60 foot waterfall and lots of access to the Cuyahoga Park trails, an old Indian Single tree, The Portage Trail...very pretty area....Akron area

One of the wonderful things that people in Akron treasure. Many, many hiking trials, places for picnics. Well maintained and always great place for pictures of nature.

This park continues with other things to see! Heard of Lock 3 on Main St. or Canal Park where the Rubber Ducks play baseball? This area explains how they were named! On W. North Street is the Mustill Store and a self guided (or volunteer guided) tour of the canal boat history in Akron that connected it to Cleveland and eventually the Erie Canal in New York. The Mustill Store has a model replica of how the canal worked as part of Akron in the Mid-1800's to bring and send merchandise to and from the area. The Mustill Store is FREE and open April to Oct., Tues to Sun. 10am-4pm. Across the street is an area with plaques that explain more about businesses that were built along the Little Cuyahoga and the giant water wheels that made them run. Also more information about and views of the locks.

I particularly enjoy the Cascade Valley Overlook Trail, about a 10 minute hike on level, paved trail. The view from the top is amazing. Do bring a camera, you'll want to remember how it looked. Down below at the Chuckery there is the Signal Tree and it's history is very unique to read. There are also trails to the Cuyahoga River, which in this valley is very picturesque.

Cascade Valley Park consists of several fields where baseball games are held. It is conducive to picnics. The signal tree is located in the park. Otherwise there isn't anything "special" to see or do.
