Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
The trail, by design, takes full advantage of valley views by extending, twice, upward to its high banks and providing a bridge connection from which to view the mature floodplain, floodplain wetland and wetland oxbows.
Mud Brook/Mill Pond Trail Phase I
The Mud Brook corridor is a fairly intact and scenic waterway that passes through highly developed residential areas in Stow, Cuyahoga Falls and Akron, as it winds its way to the Cuyahoga River. The proposed trail and flood control greenway passes through the forested floodplain of Mud Brook between Wyoga Lake Road to State Road. The first phase of the project was funded by the Clean Ohio Trail Fund (COTF), Capital Project Funds, TIF funds, and City Parks funds. Phase 1 is currently under construction, starting at Wyoga Lake Road and ending at the historic barn on Bath Road. Phase 1 includes neighborhood connectors and improvements in the floodplain for additional flood storm storage. Phase 2 is seeking funding.
In 2016, Environmental Design Group, completed a corridor master plan for the City of Cuyahoga Falls utilizing funds from the Ohio Erie Canalway Coalition (OECC). The team provided construction design documents for the approximately 3/4-mile segment that served as trail’s first phase. The project is currently under construction and the team is also providing limited construction administration support services.
