Amish country's Walnut Creek Foods brand All Beef Hickory Smoked Franks are Gluten Free without MSG made using quality cuts of meat! We're sure you'll agree they're the best hot dogs you'll ever chow down! 100% quality beef!
During the Revolutionary war and Ohio Erie canal era's smoked sausage was a common method of preserving meat! We use Smoked Skinless, Smoked Cheesy, Smoked Hot & Spicy, or Cheese & Jalapeño sausage.
If you're into new culinary experiences you'd love our exotic caribou-reindeer sausage special! Reindeer hot dogs are frequently leaner and milder in flavor, tasting similar to venison sausage, but less gamy.
Our gourmet exotic bison bratwurst sausage will be a treat to your taste buds since it's richer in flavor. Bison is healthier than beef because it's lower in saturated fat and a great source of nutrients, it has the basics: zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin B6 and selenium. Come try a Bison Brat soon!

Our Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail Snack Shack became reality after we donated 12'-20' of property frontage to close the last remaining gap between Tuscarawas county and Cleveland, Ohio. at a time we were looking for an opportunity to do something fun and rewarding.
The Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail offers recreational opportunities including biking, bird watching, dog walking, hiking, running, power walking or just enjoying a walk through nature along an historic 1830's canal towpath.
In May 2016. my family agreed to donate a 12'-20' section our our property frontage to the Ohio & Erie Canal-way Towpath Trail which was needed to close the last remaining gap between Tuscarawas county and Cleveland, Ohio. In Dec 2013 the Bolivar aqueduct McDonnell trail head was dedicated which brought the trail to the Tuscarawas-Stark county line. In 2016 the Bolivar trail was developed to about 20 feet of our property line. In 2019 the trail development will include our property to the Wheeling & Lake Erie 12' 6" Railroad bridge and from the McDonnell trail-head to the bridge. In 2019, the bridge shelter and two sections will be joined.
The about section is broke down to focus on either "About the Snack Shack" and "About the Peace Park" that we may include specific information about how each evolved.
I'm in the front house by the 12' 6" RR bridge with a food service trailer with Towpath Trail Snack Shack in the front yard. Go to the lower driveway easement closest to the canal and you may park by the handicapped accessible Porta-Jon. In the event that you arrive and no one is available to meet & greet you, please feel free to set up camp in the field between the Ohio & Erie Canal and the lower driveway easement.
Remember Sunday drives? Did you know the Towpath Trail Snack Shack is located on an Ohio Scenic Byway? We invite you to stop at our historical byway intersection where the Greenville treaty line crosses the towpath trail, Ohio Buckeye Trail, and of course, our section of Ohio & Erie Canalway National Scenic Byway!
We love the history of our historical corner of the Greenville Peace Treaty Line, Ohio-Erie Canalway Towpath Trail and Scenic Byway, Buckeye Trail, the Great American Rail-Trail. and within sight of where the first white man Christian Federick Post, a Moravian missionary to the largest Delaware Native American settlement in Ohio in 1758-'62. To have the opportunity to celebrate, encourage, and share such rich early Ohio history gives us great pleasure. Since we first started to make about a quarter acre of our little corner available to the public we've thought of a bunch of ideas and received a few great suggestions on how we may improve the visitor experience.
This is our wish list plan to improve our campsites for public usage.
