But you'll love staying right in Peninsula, too, enjoying the scenic river that runs through town, strolling through the tree-lined streets or taking a walk through the forest.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is in northern Peninsula, and this gorgeous natural area is a refuge for countless species of plants and wildlife. There are more than 110 miles of dog-friendly hiking trails in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, so you and your dog can explore the park together as long as they're on a leash. Don't forget to bring extra water and a bowl for your pooch along the way, because it gets very hot in the park. You and your dog will have so much fun partaking in all of the dog-friendly activities in and around Peninsula!
