Towpath Trail Peace Park Rules and Regulations

second campers at the peace park

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.

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

Ohio-Erie Canalway Towpath Trail bicyclists HipcampersRiding the Ohio-Erie Canalway Towpath Trail our first group of bicyclists decided on staying Sunday, June 29th, 2020 at the Towpath Trail Peace Park to rest up for their trip back to Akron, Ohio. Of course, our photobombing mascot Airbud had to get in the photo too. We enjoyed hosting our first group of cyclists and look forward to sharing our property with many more yet to arrive at our historic Tuscarawas county destination.

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.
