Cuyahoga St. to Bolanz Rd.

July 14
Cuyahoga River

Cuyahoga St. to Bolanz Rd. / 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. Akron's Waste Water Treatment Plant discharges into the river just upstream of a large, active heron rookery. A lively current with some Class I chutes add interest, and in-stream downed trees (strain- ers) demand caution. Tributaries…

Bolanz Rd. to Boston Rd.

August 4
Cuyahoga River

Bolanz Rd. to Boston Rd. / 6.8 miles, about 4.5 hrs The River is channelized between steep, muddy banks at the put-in, but soon twists through numerous oxbows, requiring paddlers to negotiate tight turns and downed trees.

We’ll use the new CVNP take-out at Boston Mills. For paddlers who can control a boat in…

Boston Rd. to Station Rd.

August 25
Cuyahoga River

Boston Rd. to Station Rd. / 5.7 miles, about 4.5 hrs After a rocky start in Boston Mills, the river meanders into a maze of braided channels and tree jams on its way to the historic Station Road Bridge. Tributaries include Spring Creek, Columbia Run, Brandywine Creek, and Chippewa Creek. The put-in and take-out use relatively new CVNP river access points. By late August, the canal diversion dam at Station Road should have been removed—a victory for FoCR, and for…
