Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail Construction in Tuscarawas County


March 29, 2024: The Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition, in partnership with the Tuscarawas County Commissioners and Tuscarawas County Park Department, is extending the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail 2 miles in Tuscarawas County south of Zoarville.

Extension Phase 1, or the “Kimble Trail” project, will span from Old Zoarville Road to the Dover Dam. A license agreement has been entered with the Kimble Company, owner of the property, to develop a public multi-use trail. The project site, known locally as the “high” trail area along the route of the old railroad parallel to Camp Tuscazoar, will be inaccessible from April 1 – September 30, 2024 due to construction of the trail.

Double B Excavating, LLC will be accessing the trail area from the access road off White Bridge on SR-416. The trail area and access road will be closed to public use until the project is complete. Please follow the directive signs that will be erected at the access points noting the trail closure.
