Cuyahoga Valley National Park East Rim Mountain Bike Trail

About This Trail

The new system of trails being added to the eastern edge of CVNP, flanks the areas north and south of Interstate 80. When completed, mountain bikers and hikers will have nearly 10 new miles to explore. 

The East Rim Trail project is part of the TRAILS FOREVER initiative to preserve, protect, and enhance the trails of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. TRAILS FOREVER is a partnership of the National Park Service, the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and park volunteers. Together, they are creating a world-class trail system in CVNP.

The East Rim Mountain Bike Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National park is largely considered to an intermediate level trail. There are lots of jumps and burms that can be challenging at higher speed for inexperienced riders. The trail has quite a bit of elevation gain and loss that catches people who are not in good cycling condition by surprise.

This trail is directional based on day. Make sure to pay attention to signs at the trail head so that you are sure to be going the correct direction.
