The Tuscarawas River is a 130-mile long tributary to the Muskingum River. Beginning just south of Akron, it flows through four counties before joining the Walhonding River near Coshocton, to form the Muskingum River. The water trail takes paddlers through the center of urban living to the peaceful rural escapes of Eastern Ohio while passing historical sites and natural landscapes along the way. Whether you are looking for a quick jaunt between towns or a longer trip through quiet stretches of nature, the Tuscarawas River has it all. 

Visit the Tuscarawas River Water Trail website to plan your next water adventure with the whole family.
