Towpath Trail Closed Weekdays in Massillon

Hiking at the Lake Ave. Trailhead

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is beginning an ongoing levee project near the Tuscarawas River in August 2020 that will cause intermittent closures along the Towpath Trail. Weekday closures between the Lake Ave. Trailhead in Massillon and Finefrock Rd./Rt. 241 in Massillon will begin in August 2020. Weekend access to this portion of the Towpath Trail is expected to be available. 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.

This video gives an overview of the project.
