Between Cleveland and Akron, the towpath is the main trail through Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The total Canalway runs 85 miles from Cleveland to Bolivar, OH and is a National Heritage Area - by creating a link from Lake Erie to the Ohio River, the Canal was an important part of transportation history.
