The Olde Muskingum Trail, managed by Stark Parks, runs for 5¾ miles along the Tuscarawas River, from Cherry Street in Canal Fulton to Forty Corners Road in Jackson Township, just north of Massillon. You can connect to the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail at either end point. The path is open to bicycles, hikers, and horses.
The trail is flat, with a crushed limestone surface. Parking is available on Cherry Street, at Butterbridge Road (with space for horse trailers), and at the Towpath Trail's Forty Corners Trailhead.
