It was too early for all that but it was a nice ride. The history of these towpaths is fasinating.

A wonderful early morning ride. I love the bridges, train depot and other man made atractions mixed in with nature and history.

Nice trail with some interesting pieces of history along the way. Not a difficult trail per se, but it will definitely let you know if you are out of shape!

We extended the Deep Lock Quarry Trail along the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail not far to the scenic Peninsula area. It was fun to watch the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad come through here (unfortunately we didn't have enough time to include it). There is a National Park Trail Mix store (bigger than the one at Boston) and a few nice restaurants and places for snacks. We ended up having dinner here at the end of a wonderful day!

A nice easy mostly wooded trail just off the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail.

Hilly, beautiful view of locks, towpath

There is not a 2.5 mile loop trail in Deep Lock Quarry. You can verify that by going on Metro Parks website.
The address is also incorrect. You will end of on a dead end street with no place to park but you can access Towpath.

Very flat walk along the Towpath throughout but some nice scenery along the way. I tend to frequent the trails around the towpath more often as the path itself is usually very congested with bike traffic.
