Sokolowski’s Overlook to Scranton Flats

Cuyahoga County, 1.8 miles roundtrip 
This section offers the opportunity to explore the beautiful connection between nature and our urban neighborhoods. Here, you’ll travel under bridges, closer to downtown Cleveland and the northern terminus of the Towpath Trail. Don’t forget to take a picture at the Cleveland script sign on Abbey Avenue!

Memorial Parkway to Mustill Store

Summit County, 2.2 miles roundtrip 
We’re excited to once again explore this area of the Towpath Trail in Akron! Travel the newly paved and recently reopened section of trail along the Cuyahoga River, and stop by the Mustill Store to learn more about our history  as a canal town.

Crystal Springs to Forty Corners

Stark County, 1.9 miles roundtrip 
Originally designated as a rich agricultural area in canal times, Crystal Springs is now a unique natural and historical area along the Ohio & Erie Canal. While traveling along this section, make sure to stop on the iron bridge just south of Crystal Springs and enjoy the tranquil views of the Tuscarawas River.

McDonnell Trailhead to Downtown Bolivar

Tuscarawas County, 2.5 miles roundtrip 
Celebrate connecting 90 miles of the Towpath Trail by traveling along a brand new boardwalk in Bolivar! This critical connection opened this summer, and takes Towpath Trail users directly through the original canal prism. Consider stopping for a refreshing meal at one of downtown Bolivar’s many local eateries!
