This park along the Cuyahoga River has waterfalls, hills, trails, and displays about early rural living. The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail follows the Ohio and Erie Canal, where mules towed canal boats. The park has numerous historic homes, bridges, and structures.

The trailhead near Snowville Rd was fairly swampy today - but that's to be expected with recent weather (snow meltage). I really enjoyed this trail. The hills make it fun with great views. Parts of the trail are narrow with lots of tree roots. We only had time to do half of the trail out and back. I'm looking forward to coming back and completing the whole trail.

Just hiked the loop today. One needs to cross creeks/runs about 5 times, which can be a challenge during winter months and wet seasons when the ground is muddy. Portions of the trails are muddy and slippery. The trails have many up/down hills and is a good exercise in that sense. Overall, the trail can be maintained/designed better.

little confusing to find where to start. pretty simple though. I'll try to help.

leave the parking lot, cross the iron bridge, walk towards and under the 82 bridge, come to the mudcatcher on your right. cross the river go up that valley... walk the river, the hillside, what ever, till you get there.

I did it in the snow with no visible trail. but very worthwhile.

Great section. Lots of ups and downs. Clearly marked blazes. Lots of great views.

Beautiful in snow and a great workout!

A nice and easy trail with a couple thick patches of pines that reach to the sky. Horseshoe Pond is just past the parking lot on the beginning of the loop and it’s pretty large. Passed a couple cross country skiers, saw some birds and deer. Middle of trail cuts along the Christmas Tree farm and in the end of the trail it runs along the road. Easy to follow and just under 3 miles!

Just got done. Very few people and wet but I expected so.

I got a little lost by the water crossing after coming down the dense pine area. it looked like the trail kept going along the side. other than that, it was wonderfully muddy, icy, steep, quiet, and fun for me and my dog who had to drag me up one of the hills. lol :) if you are with your dog I reccomend an extension leash as it will be easier on you and your dog.

A good and easy hike with lots of places to explore. Huge rock formations covered in moss are everywhere and there’s a decent overlook during the hike.

It can be very secluded if you go at the right times. Really beautiful waterfalls and streams running through this area. One of my favorites.

Riverview to major rd to horseshoe pond parking lot.
With Barbs group. 12/15/17

just did the hike. I didnt see a single person on the trail and I loved hiking across the frozen creeks and over the hills.

Difficult hike during 10 degree weather. Amazing and beautiful sight. Make sure you have good boots!

Nice hike trail is well maintained for winter hiking

This trail was easy, has some stairs and elevation changes. We took the dog and he enjoyed it. The surroundings were all pretty and the waterfall was beautiful with all the ice in the winter.

Easy shaded trail on the boardwalk. Kids loved looking at the rocks. The falls were beautiful.

Beautiful in the winter- even the frozen falls!

Really liked this hike. Went on Thanksgiving Day, so light crowds. Lots to see with the rock formations - the pictures I shared afterwards got lots of attention. Crazy that I used to live three miles up the road, and never hiked it until now!!

Great loop through the woods with beautiful landscape that follows the Buckeye trail from Boston Mills to Jaite and returns on the towpath.

loved this trail
