Independence to Akron

2 days/2 nights (Cuyahoga Valley National Park)

This is an ideal hike for locals who are looking for a “staycation” that involves the outdoors and physical exercise. It is also perfect for out-of-town visitors. Hop on a free shuttle from Cleveland Hopkins airport to the Holiday Inn in Independence. We recommend staying there for the night before starting the hike. In the morning, ask the concierge for a hotel shuttle (this is based on availability) for a ride to the trailhead. Alternatively, there is a 1.5 mi walk on sidewalks connecting directly to the towpath that is your entrance to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Independence to Peninsula

This is an ideal hike for locals who are looking for a “staycation” that involves the outdoors and physical exercise. It is also perfect for out of town visitors. Hop on a free shuttle from Cleveland Hopkins airport to the Holiday Inn in Independence South. We recommend staying there for the night before starting the hike – ExploreAFoot will take care of transporting your luggage to Peninsula. In the morning, ask the concierge for a hotel shuttle (this is based on availability) for a ride to the trailhead. Alternatively, there is a 1.5 mi walk on sidewalks directly to the towpath.
