Make Like An Owl & Take A Night Hike A Cuyahoga Valley National Park Near Cleveland

Hiking at night is a treat that we seldom have the opportunity to enjoy. Here in Ohio, most parks close at dark… which is probably for the best, as hiking at night is dangerous. Right? As it turns out, if you pick a familiar trail, hike with a buddy system, and bring a flashlight, night hiking can be endlessly rewarding. This is particularly true in the winter months when it gets dark by dinnertime throughout much of the state. If you’re longing for night hiking near Cleveland, there’s one incredible place with parks open around the clock. Pack your trail mix and flashlights, because Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) is calling your name.
