Established in 1989, Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition (OECC) is a private, non-profit organization working to develop the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail and National Heritage Area in Summit, Stark and Tuscarawas Counties. The OECC provides educational programs, events, and publications about the Canalway while developing strong working relationships with partners to preserve and interpret the natural, historical and recreational resources throughout the area.
Formed in 1968, the Stark County Bicycle Club (the "SCBC") is a not-for-profit, fraternal organization located in Canton, Ohio. The SCBC is primarily an on-road cycling Club, however, trail/towpath rides are offered as well. Not only does the SCBC boast the finest ride schedule in all of Ohio, but the Club takes its community involvement seriously, offering safety classes for youngsters and volunteering at various community events such as the Canalway Bicycle Poker Run benefiting the Massillon Area Greenways, Inc. (MAGI) and the annual North Canton Kid's Triathlon. Proudly, in 1993, the SCBC became the first organization in the State of Ohio to "adopt" a highway under the State's Adopt-A-Highway program.

We is an adult hiking group in Stark County, Ohio that shares the love of the outdoors and nature. We began in 1993. Through our volunteers, we are able to hike year-round on all types of trails including local parks, county and state parks, and national parks. Each hike celebrates the beauty of the world around us and is always enjoyable and memorable.
