Lake Erie is Ohio’s greatest resource and Lake Erie Coastal Ohio supports providing travelers with access to its beaches, parks, preserves, lighthouses, islands, historical sites, adventure sites, quaint villages, and big cities. The Lake Erie Coastal Ohio Trail is an America’s scenic byway which weaves along the southern shore of Lake Erie for 293 miles, connecting many of these destinations between Toledo and Conneaut. Both here and on the Lake Erie Coastal Ohio Trail mobile app you’ll find locations to fish, bird watch, bike, boat, camp, learn, tour, eat, explore, and interact! Lake Erie Coastal Ohio is truly a destination with something for everyone. A trip to Lake Erie Coastal Ohio along our America’s byway can last all day or much longer!
The Lake Erie Coastal Ohio Steering Committee was established in 2016 as a result of a recommendation from the Lake Erie Coastal Ohio Trail byway’s 2015 Corridor Management Plan. The mission of the committee is to promote tourism and quality of life while advocating for the preservation of natural, historical, and cultural resources.
Designated an Ohio Scenic Byway in December 2004, the Lake Erie Coastal Ohio Trail Scenic Byway is 293 miles long and borders Lake Erie between Conneaut and Toledo. It links to The Pennsylvania Seaway Trail near Conneaut, leading to an uninterrupted 805 mile byway experience through New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
