The Cuyahoga Valley is a stunning and complex landscape. Scenic views are found in the heart of our nature preserves as well as in the heart of our industrial centers. Often, these very different vistas are in close proximity to one another.
The many scenic overlooks in the Cuyahoga Valley are important tools in maintaining and revitalizing the River Valley. Indeed, these awe-inspiring views help people feel connected—even drawn—to the Valley, and foster respect for the natural and the built environment.
Beyond the inspiration derived, scenic views can have important economic and social benefits such as higher property values, tourism revenue, as well as increased physical and mental well-being of individuals.
From the grit of the Flats, to the many bridges that cross the River Valley, railroad tracks and busy rights-of-way, to the glow of the trees at the height of autumn and cascading waterfalls, the Valley’s beauty is found everywhere.
