Two great features on the Towpath Trail have been published recently-
Rails to Trails Magazine featured the Towpath in their article “Ohio’s Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail”
Trail of the Month: June 2016
“What German and Irish workers dug by hand 180 year ago is still here today.”
Like a virtual rolling history book, remnants of an early-19th century canal unfold along the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail as it journeys 85 miles through an eclectic panoply of landscapes in northeastern Ohio. Down the pathway, adventurers will discover a series of canal locks, restored historical buildings, interpretive signage and, of course, the canal itself—a magnificent structure of well-worn sandstone filled in some areas with water, but for the most part dry with the haunting beauty of an ancient ruin.
Bike SWPA did a blog post “Road Trip to Akron” the story features some fantastic photos of the southerly sections of the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail.
