10.1 miles, about 6.5 hrs
This section of the Cuyahoga shows mixed use: wooded parkland with intrusions from agriculture, recreation, and commercial and residential development. Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the RAP (Remedial Action Plan) area start here. Discharges from Akron’s Waste Water Treatment Plant are just upstream from a large, active heron rookery. A lively current with some Class I chutes add interest. In-stream downed trees (strainers) will demand caution. Tributaries include the Little Cuyahoga, Sand Run, and Yellow Creek. This is an immensely interesting, contrasting section of the Cuyahoga.
