Towpath Treks

Hike more, worry less - Towpath Trail

You have seen pictures of tunnels, bridges, a dry dock, and bright red lock tender’s house. You have heard about great places to see bald eagles soaring overhead and a chorus of spring peepers. Explore a few miles at a time over 25 miles of Towpath Trail in Stark County during the Towpath Treks series. Walk with us and experience history, nature and wildlife, scenery and seasons, and whatever else we encounter. We’ll hike more and worry less over the next few months, as we travel north through Stark County.
