Towpath Trail Extension
Connecting Project Logo


The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail is one of Ohio's most scenic bikeways, following the Cuyahoga River Valley Floor in northeast Ohio.  In order to continue this great legacy the towpath trail will continue north through Cleveland towards Lake Erie.  This segment of the Towpath Trail Extension, Stage 3, begins at the north end of the Steelyard Commons Development at Holmden Avenue and continues north along a wooded, natural escarpment along a hillside with a residential neighborhood above and a mix of industry below.   The trail travels under the Clark Avenue Viaduct and enters Clark Fields.  Once the trail travels through the park the trail will become elevated to cross W. 7th Street and then return to a grade near or adjacent to Quigley Road where a major trailhead will be located.  The trail would then pass under the I-490 bridge and follow the alignment of W.4th Street ending at a trailhead at W. 3rd Street & Literary Road.
