Goodyear Trek Program


Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, we have connected with a dedicated group of Goodyear associates with a passion for and appreciation of the Ohio & Erie Canalway and Towpath Trail. In 2015, a planning committee of these individuals was formed and has been working in partnership with the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition for the past two years. The goal of the group is to help connect and introduce Goodyear associates to the Towpath Trail and Ohio & Erie Canalway.

Goodyear employees begin a trek outside world headquarters.

To date, the committee has hosted more than 10 family-friendly hikes on different sections of the Ohio & Erie Canalway along the Towpath Trail as well as near the Goodyear World Headquarters. Excursions have included bicycle and walking tours through Akron, Canal Fulton, Middlebury Run (across from the Goodyear World Headquarters), and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The group plans to travel to all the different locations along the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail with the program in the coming years.

We look forward to continuing to partner with this dedicated group and amazing company to continue providing valuable experiences along the Towpath Trail.
