iTowpath - Walk the Towpath

1:00 pm
Walk the Towpath, beginning in front of Akron Civic Theater

ABC Botzum Trailhead

3:00 pm
Botzum Trailhead is on Riverview Road south of Bath Road and north of Smith Road. This is at the southern end of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This is a four season ride. We ride the roads on road bikes but sometimes the Towpath using mountain or cross bikes. We also encourage hiking. Our 19 mi. road route (in the Cuyahoga Valley) is moderately challenging with many possible shortcuts for more casual riders. The roads are generally good but may vary with the seasons, and usually there is little traffic. We regroup often, so you may ride at your own pace. No one is left behind! Helmets and Lights Required.
