Nice ride along the Tuscawaras River dam in Massillon, that takes you to Canal Fulton, Navarre and beyond. A nice river valley and mix of city, suburban and farm scenery.

A mid-October ride before the leaves were down on a sunny late afternoon bike ride was a rare weekday treat. We did a short 10 mile southerly out and back from Lake Ave NW to the Sippo Valley Trail out to Skyland Ave and back. The trail is in good condition and the peddle/pedestrian traffic was fairly sparse. There are a few areas where roots have buckled the asphalt (e.g. west of the creek at Oak Ledges) as well as some uneven transition areas.

cannot even park where the directions suggested for this trail we actually parked about mile half north at ernies bike shop and continued our 2mile hike from there, which was a great walk next to the canal side.

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.
