We have just been advised by the National Park Service that there will be some temporary closures on sections of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail next week. This is for maintenance work.
Monday, July 27, 2009 7:00am until 4:30pm - Beginning at the tunnel under the railroad tracks about 1 mile north of Peninsula, closed up to the Interstate 80 bridge, just south of Boston Mills Road.
Tuesday, July 28, 2009 7:00am until 4:30pm - Beginning at the northernmost intersection of the Towpath with the Carriage Trail (about 5 miles north of Peninsula), closed up to the Station Road Bridge near the Brecksville Reservation (about 7 miles north of Peninsula).
If you are renting bicycles from us and/or starting a Towpath ride in Peninsula on either of these days, we recommend that you head south to avoid both closures.
Please note that the maintenance work may need to be re-scheduled due to weather conditions, so the trail closure dates may be subject to change. We will try to post updated information here as it becomes available.
