About the 'Tuscarawas River
The Tuscarawas River has not changed much in three hundred years. The scenery is breathtaking. Seventy-five percent of it is wilderness with few structures along the way. Canoeists can often see deer, squirrels, blue herons, owls, bald eagles, turtles and many more wildlife inhabitants. The Tuscarawas River was a major trade route through Ohio. The historic route follows the Cuyahoga, Tuscarawas and Muskingum Rivers from Lake Erie in Cleveland, south to the Ohio at Marietta.
The beginning of another 'Great Trail' was established with The Canal in 1830. The Ohio Erie Canal flowed north and south and followed the Muskingum Trail. The Sandy- Beaver flowed east and west, much as the Great Trail did. These canals converge where the Big Sandy meets the Tuscarawas River.
While the canal projects were not sustained once the railroads came to the valley around 1850, they now live on as the Ohio & Erie Canal Corridor.
