River Description

America's North Coast! The Euclid Beach Band had it all wrong:

Lake Erie is the shallowest of the Great Lakes; so, when the Gales of November (or eleven other select months) remember, there can be some great surfing at the Coast. When the weather's right for it, the beach will be populated by paddlers, board surfers, and the occasional windsurfer. Great fun!


From the South: Take I-77 North toward Cleveland. Where I-77 ends, get onto I-90 East. Within a couple of miles, you'll see signs for Rte. 2 West. Take that exit. Drive on Rte. 2 West, past the R&R Hall of Fame, past Jacobs Field. Stay on Rte. 2 West. Soon, there'll be an exit for Edgewater State Park. Take that exit, park, and head for the beach!

From the East: Take I-90 West, and grab the exit for Rte. 2 West. Proceed as above.

From the West: Take Rte. 2 East. There'll be an exit for Edgewater State Park. If you reach Ashtabula, you've gone too far.

From the North: Paddle South across Lake Erie. Stop when you find the beach.

Check for predicted wave heights. 3 feet is probably the beginning of good clean fun; 8 feet or so is probably getting perty spanky.

New Hydro Project for Cuyahoga (OH)

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.
