Level ride along the canal. (7 miles) As this section of trail contains no locks, it is ultimately flat. There are a few "bumps" as the trail dips into gullies that once had culverts. The canal in Navarre originally went right through the center of town. The town has reclaimed all that for residential use but there is a trail built along the Tuscarawas River.

This was an excellent trail for beginners or for easy walking. The portion u walled with my dog was very flat, straightforward, easy to navigate. The ground was packed gravel and the edges were well maintained. Beautiful walk by the canal, though may be boring for experienced hikers. My dog loved it!

Good trail mostly packed gravel a very few scattered loose spots. Bright spots the aqueduct/wooden bridge over the Tuscarawas river, The tunnel under the still in use N&W RR, spotted a baby deer right on the path. Whole trail is wide enough for two bike groups to pass single file.

Lost count of how many turtles I saw! The path is very wide and well maintained.

Lovely clean wide trail. Tried to bike it but was too steep in parts and I only made it 3 miles. Hiked the whole thing 5 times now and enjoyed the remoteness feel
