Take a hike along our beautiful 2 mile Magnolia Trail, experience diverse wildlife and enjoy our rich canal history along the way. Our beautiful trail is situated along old towpaths used back in the late 1800s to guide canal boats through our many lock systems. Magnolia trail feature 2 main loops to enjoy together or separately. The Nye loop is named after a famous musician who wrote lyrics about Lockbourne's canal and lock systems back in the late 1800s. The Maine loop is our second trail named after the last canal boat to pass through Lockbourne down the Ohio & Erie Canal System. Both of our trail loops offer beauty and something unique you will only find here in OUR Village of Lockbourne.
