So I feel like "easy" is a bit misleading. I'm a bigger guy and the trail starts and ends with a pretty decent incline that I found pretty challenging. Overall the majority of the trail is easy going and the quarry was really interesting. I'm looking forward to coming back during the autumn. There are plenty of benches and lots of historical facts scattered throughout the trail.

Not a very challenging hike but the quarry and lock were very interesting to look at.

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!

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