About Bend View Metropark
Maybe half the fun of Bend View Metropark is getting there. The park entrance is on the Anthony Wayne Trail, but it is also accessible by hiking 2.2 miles from Farnsworth or about six miles from Providence on the Towpath Trail. It’s definitely worth the walk for what is often described as the best view along the Maumee.

The Towpath Trail follows the remains of the Miami and Erie Canals along the old Towpath where mules towed flat-bottom boats along the waterway. The trail is also part of the Buckeye Trail System, one of the most significant long-distance walking trails in the state.
