River Description

Directions, courtesy of the Lord of Baywatch:
Take I-90 East (from Cleveland and Akron) to State Rte. 11; go North.
Exit 11 at Seven Hills Road; turn right.
At stop sign, turn left and cross RR tracks. At Plymouth Ridge Rd. turn right;
in about 2 or three miles reach Greenhill Road, also called Township Rte. 20.
Turn right and immediately go down the hill to the river.
If you cross the river on Plymouth Ridge you have gone too far.

Shuttle: go back up Greenhill Rd. to Plymouth Ridge, cross it, and continue.
After a bend in the road to the right will be a road on your left. Turn here and follow this road to the takeout at the ford.

Alternate takeout, at Indian Trail Park (State Rd.), adds 3 Class I-II miles to the trip.
Alternate putin, on Benetka Rd., adds 3 miles (1.5 flat, 1.5 Class I) to the trip.

Runnable flows are lower than 500CFS - I would say above 1.6ft on the Dewey Rd bridge gauge makes the run doable - which corresponds to approximately 1.8ft-2ft on the Conneaut Creek Gauge (approximately 300CFS)

Summary of Gauge Readings

On SE corner of Olin Covered Bridge (Dewey Rd.) 1.5' minimum, 3.0' is high.

New Hydro Project for Cuyahoga (OH)

2005-07-26 00:00:00-04
Thomas O'Keefe

The Cuyahoga River, the river that burned, played a pivotal role in the birth of the nation's river conservation movement. While restoration gains have been significant, a proposal for a new hydropower project on a dam targeted for removal would represent a signficant setback in ongoing restoration efforts and would delay for at least half a century any effort to bring back the lost whitewater that sits buried behind the Ohio Edison Gorge Dam. Paddler participation at upcoming scoping meetings is important.
