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.
