About Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation
The Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation stretches through the villages of Cuyahoga Heights and Valley View. The reservation follows a portion of its namesake, the historic 309-mile Ohio and Erie Canal. Together with the Cuyahoga River, the northernmost remaining 4.4 miles of watered canal provides wildlife management areas, fishing opportunities, and scenic beauty. Picnicking, hiking trails, a 7.2-mile all-purpose trail, and unique natural and cultural heritage interpretive graphics are also features of the reservation.
Observation decks and viewing areas provide exciting opportunities to see and hear red-tailed hawks, great blue heron, beavers, deer, orioles, yellow warblers, and other wildlife that abound in the bottomland forest. Rich in history, the 110-mile Ohio and Erie Canal Corridor extends between Cleveland and Dover.
