Access north from Ira Trailhead
Cuyahoga Falls, OH, 44264
The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail becomes a boardwalk over the Beaver Marsh just north of Ira Trailhead in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. One of the best bird and wildlife viewing spots in the park, this area is a state Watchable Wildlife location and is one reason the park received the designation of important bird area by the Audubon Society of Ohio.
The marsh exemplifies the conservation success of the park. Once a junkyard, the area was reclaimed through beaver activity combined with clean-up efforts by park staff and volunteers.
