We rode from the Rockside Station 13 miles to Peninsula, then caught the train back. The towpath started out with traffic noise, but soon turned quiet in the forest. It was mildly downhill most of the way on this nice trail.

We first rode the trail, over Labor Day weekend, back in 2016. We rode for 2 days. We started in Tuscarawas County and continued to Lake Lucerne in Stark County. The scenery varied greatly, from nature preserve-like to riding out in the open alongside the...More

If you're into walks or bike rides, you've got to get on this path. It goes for miles. Runs through the Cuyahoga Falls National Park. Totally beautiful. Serene. It's fun when you get to cross points of interest like the Beaver Marshes on wooden bridge...More
