Towpath Trail Construction Work in Massillon

Hiking at the Lake Ave. Trailhead

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began an ongoing levee project near the Tuscarawas River in August 2020. Please obey all construction and safety signs, and be cautious of unpredictable trail conditions.

This is a long term project that will affect this section of the towpath through year 2022.

As of Dec. 14, 2020, the Towpath Trail, in this section, should be open daily until another phase of the project begins in April 2021 which will close the Towpath Trail in this section. Please obey all construction and safety signs and be cautious of unpredictable trail conditions.

This video gives an overview of the project.
