Towpath Trail Extended

A license agreement signed by the Tuscarawas County Commissioners and the Kimble Corporation has extended the Ohio & Erie Towpath Trail an additional four miles beyond Camp Tuscazoar.

This marks an incredible milestone in the development of the Ohio & Erie Canalway and the Towpath Trail because with one stroke of the pen, we basically cut the nine miles we needed to develop in Tuscarawas County right in half," said Dan Rice, president and CEO of the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition.

Volunteers and donations are needed to design and complete the additional section of trail, and there are hopes that it will be open to the public in 2018 or 2019.
