The North Terminus canoe landing of the Portage Path was located here along the Cuyahoga River. The 1797 survey of the trail began at a black cherry tree on the south bank of the river. If standing today, that tree would be in the middle of the stream 90 feet N 32o E from the survey marker along a straight line continuation of the flat trail stones. Over 200 years of erosion uprooted the tree and moved the shoreline to its present location.
