The Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal (P&O) was built between 1835 and 1840. Also known as the Mahoning Canal, the P&O connected Akron, Ohio, to the Beaver and Erie Canal in Pennsylvania. It extended approximately eighty-three miles and contained fifty-four locks. NatureVation loves this ride, especially in autumn with a stop at Beckwith Orchard & Cider Mill.
