Best Place to Spot a Bald Eagle 

Cuyahoga Valley National Park Towpath Trail

Last spring marked the first time that a non-captive bald eagle chick has hatched in Cuyahoga County. And its birthplace was a nest in the Pinery Narrows, about one-half mile north of the Station Road trailhead in Brecksville. (The one-ton nest is still visible on the far side of the Cuyahoga River.) Although the chick fledged in July, the family has taken up permanent residence. You should have luck spotting the adults along the Towpath Trail, between the Station Road trailhead and the Valley View Cinemark. Of course, the best time to spot one of these magnificent creatures is when the trees are bare -- a great incentive to pull on that parka and take a hike.
