A day starting with the butterflies and birds of Zoar Woods might be just the thing!
From rural, pastoral views on the Towpath Trail to areas rich with historical treasures along the America’s Byway - such as the J.E. Reeves Victorian Home & Carriage House Museum and the gardens of Warther’s Museum - there’s plenty for your scrapbook in the Tuscarawas County Section of the Canalway.
Some intriguing spots include:
- Canal Murals in New Philadelphia
- Towpath Bridge over I77
- View from inside the tree at Historic Zoar Garden
- Fort Laurens, Ohio’s only Revolutionary War fort
- Schoenbrunn Village
And, each season offers something new, from the colorful blooms and leaves of spring, summer and fall to the frozen landscapes of winter.
