Status Alert for Towpath Trail in Massillon 2020-2021

Towpath Trail Closure And Unpredictable Trail Conditions

Expect unpredictable trail conditions through July 2020 while a project near the Massillon Sewer Plant is happening. Use caution and plan on walking bikes through the area. An ongoing levee project near the Tuscarawas River in Massillon by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will impact travel for an extended period. The work will cause intermittent closures of the Towpath Trail. Weekday closures between Lake Ave. Trailhead in Massillon and Finefrock Rd. in Massillon will begin in Aug. 2020. The trail will be open on weekends. Please obey all construction and safety signs and be cautious of unpredictable trail conditions. This is a long term project that will affect various sections of the Towpath Trail in this area throughout 2020 and 2021.
