The Towpath Trail Peace Park is located where the Greenville Treaty Line intersects with the Ohio-Erie canal towpath trail just west of the village of Bolivar, Ohio. The Greenville Peace Treaty specifically refers to Fort Laurens and runs from Greenville, Ohio on the west side of the state to about a mile and a half to where the Sandy creek enters the Tuscarawas River and from there north to Cleveland, Ohio. Fort Laurens is located only 1.5 miles east of the Peace Park on the towpath trail and we encourage everyone to hike there to visit. The Canal Lands section of the towpath trail has been adopted by the Bolivar-Zoar Rotary club who does a great job of helping the Tuscarawas Parks and Recreation to maintain the trail from Fort Laurens to Route 800.


Here's a very well-produced video by the Ohio Historical Connection of the story of Fort Laurens that's only 20 minutes long. It is also the story of how Ohio became settled shortly after the American Revolution and became the 17th state admitted to the Union on March 1st, 1803

The Peace Park Blog is about the park we're establishing at the intersection of the Greenville Treaty Line and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail between the McDonnell Trailhead and the village of Bolivar. The Greenville Peace Treaty was the first peace treaty authorized by President George Washington and our current US Congress! 2020 will be the 225th anniversary of the treaty signed on August 3 1795 by Mad Anthony Wayne and the American Indians.

The Towpath Trail Snack Shack blog covers scheduled events we will attend at various communities along the entire 110 mile lenght of Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail. Whenever we're not at an event, chances are, we'll be blogging about something related to the Snack Shack or within a reasonable 5 mile biking, hiking or driving distance, from a remote trail location.

The Towpath Trail Snack Shack collection of hot dog and sausage dog recipes.

This Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail Blog was established to share helpful information relating to the recreational activities like biking, hiking, dog walking, horseback riding, power walking, bird and wild life watching that someone may be interested in participating.

Notice

The Great Trails Festival will be the only event scheduled through 2021!

We've decided to install vending machines in the physical towpath trail snack shack for 24/7 access instead of serving lunch between 10 am to 2 pm!
