For much of its 9-mile length, the Towpath Trail traces the scenic Maumee River, paralleling US 24 (at some distance), on the southwestern outskirts of Toledo. It traverses three parks as it follows the former Miami & Erie Canal (circa mid-1800s). Along the way, you will be treated to a peaceful, tree-lined route dotted with historical sites, such as an old mill in Grand Rapids at the southern end of the trail. The pathway has a crushed stone and dirt surface and can be rough in some places.
Parking can be found in the three parks that the trail traverses (from north to south): Farnsworth Metropark, Bend View Metropark and Providence Metropark.
