These photos are of Towpath Trail that is owned and cared for by the Pickaway County Historical and Genealogical Society. Named in remembrance of the horses and mules towing the boats along the Ohio-Erie Canal back in the 1800s, these photos are basically in order starting at Canal Park at the top of the feeder dam and go south along a ridge and eventually ends up going along the canal with photos of the scenery seen along the way. It’s hard not to wonder what it was like back in the 1800s as the boats made their way with their supplies. There is a short trail that heads eastward to where the old railroad abutments once supported the train tracks crossing the Scioto River. Getting headed back south again will pass by the Pickaway Trail, a rails-to-trails endeavor, that intersects and heads west. The trail continues further on south taking folks by the Shelly Materials quarry and lake, followed by more farmland and a wetland area. The trail ends up running through a beautiful stretch of trail between both the Scioto River and the old Ohio-Erie Canal where places on the trail narrow with the river and canal being about 20 or 25 feet apart. The photos were taken at different times of the year and we hope to have some spring and summer photos added later. We hope you enjoy the photos.
