Another popular option is the hike from the Silver Fern Bed & Breakfast to Akron, following the Towpath for the entire route. The destination is the Mustill Store located at Lock 15 -- a canal-era building believed to have been built in the 1850's, although the exact date is unknown. This store is also adjacent to the Cascade Lofts, meaning that hikers can start their journey in Akron and head northwards to Peninsula, if that is preferred.
- Southbound: If the city of Akron is your destination, there is much to keep you occupied. You might want to stay an extra day!
- Northbound: Peninsula has a number of art galleries and small businesses to keep you busy. Hale Farm and Village is about an hour and half away on foot. Consider visiting Blossom, the summer home of the Cleveland Orchestra, for a concert. This may require an Uber trip! Lawn seats are only $16.
