Activities in our National Heritage Area

There are so many ways to explore the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area. Using the Towpath Trail, you can adventure by bike, foot and even horseback in some areas. Hike other trails in any of the four park systems to wonder at nature and wildlife. Climb aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad to experience a breathtaking train ride or travel along America’s Byways and take in the natural beauty. Get a fresh look at water by kayaking or canoeing on the Cuyahoga River, the Tuscarawas River or even Lake Erie. Learn more about the canal-era by spending time in one of our many historic sites or museums. 

It's all here waiting for you!
