A Fun for All paddle fest focused on Downtown Cuyahoga Falls and the Upper Gorge of the Cuyahoga River.
This is a free and public event. View points along the river, within the Sheraton, and on High Bridge at High Bridge Glens Park.
A "Fun for All" paddle fest focused on Downtown Cuyahoga Falls and the Upper Gorge of the Cuyahoga River. Paddlers, spectators, and photographers can enjoy themselves in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls, whether on the water or on foot, exploring the urban riverfront and growing variety of businesses.
The Cuyahoga Falls Fest is a grassroots gathering of experienced paddlers. Proper gear and training is necessary to tackle the Class 4+ rapids. Paddlers are encouraged to form their own groups, safety plans, and consider shuttle logistics if necessary.
Primary Paddle Location:
Cuyahoga River Upper Gorge (Sheraton Section) - Class IV-V+ (water flow dependent)
Tinker's Creek - Class IV-V+
East/West Falls Black River - Class V
Cuyahoga River Lower Gorge - Class II-III
Cuyahoga River Water Trail - various Class I-III
Due to unforeseeable weather events and water levels, paddlers should consider alternative paddling options if the Upper Gorge conditions are not favorable for their abilities. If possible, the team at the City of Akron's Watershed Division may assist with a reservoir release for low water conditions.
This event is put on by a third party. For updates and questions, please click here to directly contact the event lead.
