Providence

Wintering the Towpath Trail Hike

Shake off those winter blahs at the best winter hike in the region. Stunning views of the Maumee River await those hiking the 5 miles from Providence to Bend View. Board a shuttle bus back to Providence for more winter fun; chili, s’mores, hot chocolate and a Beer Garden at Lock #44 (next to the Heritage Center). If weather conditions are right, bring your own skates for skating on the Canal, or wander to the Isaac Ludwig Mill and see artisans at their craft. Participants receive a collectible commemorative gift.
