    07/16/2018: The Centennial Legacy Trail fund collection has ended. Many thanks to all who donated. Future details will appear in Newsteps issue later this year.

    05/26/2018 E-blast:
    The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail between Boston Store Visitor Center and Peninsula is now open. In December 2017, the trail section was closed for replacement of a pedestrian bridge. The park worked with contractors to successfully complete the bridge so visitors can enjoy the trail during the holiday weekend. The trail remains closed between Deep Lock Quarry and Hunt House. The park is working to complete the remaining three pedestrian bridges included in the same project. The temporary closure is necessary for public safety. There will be no detour available. Please respect the closures.
