Glens Trail Gorge Metropark runs from front Street to Chestnut Street in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. You will hike along beautiful sandstone ledges above you, with sheer cliffs towering above the other side of the river. numerous springs and seeps are apparent along the way. On the face of the cliffs across the river, ice marks the location of these seeps in the winter. these towering stone walls and their reflections in the smooth water of the river below are a spectacular sight.


The forests are composed mainly of oaks (Quercus spp.) with some sycamores (Platanus occidentalis) with their white upper bark visible in the bottomland below.


After the river flows through this gorge, it heads back north to Lake Erie. Massive sandstone ledges dominate the scenery, providing a number of nooks and crannys to speculate about.


The Gorge and Glens Trail Gorge Metropark was probably was cut during the past 12,000 years, after glacial debris blocked the former route of the Cuyahoga River near modern downtown Akron and caused the river to find its present course. The rushing water flows over a shale riverbed between ledges made of Sharon Conglomerate. Oak, Blackgum, Tuliptree, and Yellow Birch are common in the woods that cover the valley walls. Springs flow from the ledges at one spot along the Glens Trail, which provides the water source needed for liverwort.
