PENINSULA, Ohio (AP) - The National Park Service is working with Kent State University to look at opening up the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) River for canoeing and kayaking.

Small private groups will be taking trips over the summer in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park so officials can determine the feasibility of large-scale paddling.

A spokeswoman says the park plans to study safety issues and paddling logistics.

There are no boat launches along the river. The water has high bacteria levels from overflowing sewers.

Officials say they’ve wanted to establish a water trail through the park for a long time. Paddling is permitted but not encouraged right now.
