Parking at the northern end of this section is at Oak Knoll Park off of Walnut Rd. (N40 47.347 W81 31.532) There is a trail through the park then it's across the bridge to meet up with the trail on the other side as it runs south along the Massilon Levee. To continue north, you have to ride up 4th, 5th and 6th Streets where you can connect with the Sippo Valley Trail or cross the bridge and find the O and E Canal again. John Glenn Grove has parking and a portajohn just of Warmington Rd. about midway between Massilon and Navarre.

Very easy trail for bikes. Part of the Ohio and Erie Towpath system that extends from Zoar to Cleveland. Ar the Lake Street trail head, there is a great stop with a deli and a bike shop.
