Description of River

The 8 mile section of the Cuyahoga River that we paddle is absolutely beautiful. It has a gentle flowing current which pushes your kayak down river so you can relax and take in the scenery around you. With an average depth of 2 - 4 feet, we don't have to be concerned with low water levels but not so high that you can't stand up in it in most sections.  This section also has been designated as one of Ohio's scenic rivers.

 

This section of the river is designated as an Ohio State Scenic River by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR, n.d., para 1). And according to the National Park Service, it has "excellent water quality" (NPS, n.d., para 3). I have personally spotted bald eagles, beavers, otters and many species of birds and turtles in the river.  If you are looking for a memorable experience, then book a premium kayak rental with Breakaway Excursions .
