1. The Towpath Trail Marker
Inscription.  The Towpath Trail, where mules once towed flat bottom boats on the Miami & Erie Canal, connects three Metroparks along the scenic Maumee River. Farnsworth overlooks three islands in the river and the picturesque ruins of an Interurban Bridge. Bend View's name describes its greatest attribute - the view of a 90-degree bend in the river. At Providence, the history of the canal comes alive at The Canal Experience.
