Cuyahoga Valley Tours

 Cuyahoga Valley National Park & Area


   The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is the gem between Akron and Cleveland. Though a short distance from these urban environments Cuyahoga Valley National Park seems worlds away. The Cuyahoga the "crooked river" as named by American Indians, rolls through forests, rolling hills, and farmlands. The park is a refuge for flora and fauna, gives a sense of times past.
    Bob Macak an outdoor enthusiast enjoys spreading his knowledge of the CVNP by offering tours of the park.  Throughout his 53 years he has gained a unique perspective of the Park and its treasures.
