From Lake Erie North to the shores of the Tuscarawas River South...
and 110 miles in between, the natural beauty, cultural richness and historical significance of the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area can be found traveling along the iconic Towpath Trail, riding aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, or taking a picturesque drive along our nationally designated America’s Byway.
Working Together & Making a Difference
Within our borders - stretching from Cleveland to New Philadelphia - you’ll find the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, the County Park Districts of Cuyahoga, Summit, Stark and Tuscarawas Counties all working together with the Ohio & Erie Canalway, its communities and organizations to restore, build and replenish the cultural, historical, natural and recreational resources of the region that collectively tell the story of a canal that helped Ohio and the nation grow.
Annually, more than 2.5 million Americans find their way to the iconic 81+ mile Towpath Trail running through the heart of the Canalway. The historic Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad and the signed America’s Byway route offer additional Canalway travel options through the area.
