“Accessible boardwalk to wildlife”
Review of Beaver Marsh

Beaver Marsh
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Nice boardwalk goes over a marshy area in CVNP. We were told that the beavers come out at dusk. We were there during the day, so we came back in the evening....but were too late. Even without seeing the beavers, it was a really nice walk. It was easily accessible for wheelchairs, children, bike riders, just about anyone. Part trail, part boardwalk. It has viewing areas where you can sit and watch the wildlife. Otters, frogs, beavers, ducks, herons are all said to come here at various times. Highly recommend if you are not into strenuous hikes but want to see wildlife.

This is on the Cuyahoga Valley National Park's Towpath Trail. You enter the parking area off of Ira Road and Riverview Road. It's a short walk from the parking lot to the Marsh. You'll usually see very large turtles along with several species of birds (including Herron), and, if you're lucky, a beaver or two. Kids really love it....even the older kids!

A nice boardwalk walk is really all that's here through a marshy area. We went and saw no beavers but we did see some dams and the canal running along side the trail was also very nice. Good trail in Cuyahoga.

Nice short spot to hike to in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. From the IRA trailhead you only have about a mile round trip down to the boardwalk built over the Marsh. Go at dusk if you want to see a lot of beaver activity. There are a couple beaver lodges there. They built the marsh by damming up the canal. You will also see some huge snapping turtles, some herons, ducks, geese and other wildlife. Plenty of benches to sit and take it in.

Great little hike out from the closest parking areas, and always something interesting to see- last time there I saw an Eagle!
