This 54-mile byway follows part of the original route of the Miami and Erie Canal, an important 19th century transportation route from Lake Erie to Cincinnati. The canal operated in the 1840 and 1860 era but was replaced by the railroads. Visitors can enjoy a canal boat ride at the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency, formerly known as the Piqua Historical Area, or hike through the many trails and state parks near the byway. This byway follows State Route 66 and the canal corridor from Johnson Farm at Piqua in Miami County, northward through Minster, New Bremen, St. Mary's and Spencerville, ending in Delphos in Allen County, a distance of 54 miles.
