Visitor centers, restrooms and other areas at Cuyahoga Valley National Park in northeast Ohio are back in service.

The park south of Cleveland encouraged runners and bicyclists to return to its trails on Thursday.

A statement from the park’s chief ranger said the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad also is resuming operations.

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force also is reopening. The facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base had been open only one day since the shutdown began Oct. 1. A spokesman said it is immediately resuming normal operating hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
