Brecksville, Ohio - The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park will be closed to the general public starting at dusk beginning Saturday, November 2 until 3 p.m. on Sunday, November 3. All of the parking lots along the Towpath Trail from Frazee Trailhead to Botzum Trailhead including Indigo Lake Trailhead will be closed. The closure is due to the Towpath Marathon, a specialty marathon, half marathon, and 10K race, sponsored by the Ohio Canal Corridor.

The Towpath Marathon was originally scheduled for Sunday, October 13, but was cancelled due to the government shutdown.
