The Towpath Trail will be temporarily rerouted around the KB BioEnergy plant while the City of Akron performs work associated with its ongoing sewer project.
Due to sewer work being completed by the City of Akron, the trail is rerouted between Memorial Parkway and the Mustill Store Trailhead, just north of downtown. The new route will be in effect for several years. Get more information on this project.
The Memorial Parkway Trailhead will be temporarily closed due to a City of Akron CSO construction project. The restrooms will be open. A small portion of the Towpath Trail near the trailhead will be detoured around the construction area. Trail users may park at the Dog Park parking lot.
The Crystal Springs Trailhead will be closed for paving on Oct. 22, 2020. An ongoing levee project near the Tuscarawas River in Massillon by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will impact travel for an extended period. The work will cause intermittent closures of the Towpath Trail. Weekday closures between Lake Ave. Trailhead in Massillon and Finefrock Rd. in Massillon began in Aug. 2020. The trail will be open on weekends. Please obey all construction and safety signs and be cautious of unpredictable trail conditions. This is a long term project that will affect various sections of the Towpath Trail in this area throughout 2020 and 2021.
