River Day Paddle and Pizza on the Cuyahoga River
In honor of River Day, we will be hosting a kayak paddle on a 5.5 mile section of the Upper Cuyahoga River followed by a pizza party at our store. The section of the river we will be paddling is also known as the Upper Cuyahoga State Scenic River which earned it's designation as a scenic river on June 26, 1974. Plentiful in it's aquatic biodiversity, the Upper Cuyahoga has has over 32 species of fish and mammals.
Our kayak trip will start at Headwaters Trail in Mantua, Ohio and take us south down to Route 303. We will pass through forest, wetlands and even a state nature preserve. Paddlers on this section of the river have seen otter, beaver, blue heron, bald eagles and many other varieties of birds. This is a great time to see flowers which our still in bloom and even birds on their annual migration.
