Explore Your National Park with Run Aboard

Due to erosion identified by the National Park, we are unable to offer the Explorer Program through the remainder of the season. Please check back next Spring.

Run the trails and ride the rails! Ride the train one direction and run back to your starting point or vice versa.

Run Aboard is $5 per person ONE WAY and is paid upon boarding (ages 3 and older). Cash is preferred; exact change is appreciated. The train can be flagged down at any of our boarding stations by waving both arms over your head. The train will always leave on time from the stations, so please arrive to the station 10 minutes prior to departure time.

Do you frequently run the Cuyahoga Valley National Park? Purchase an Explorer Seasonal Pass.
