Class I-II Maumee River, OH

Maumee Scenic River & Water Trail (Riverside Park to Cullen Park)

The Scenic portion of the Maumee River originates at the Ohio-Indiana state line and extends 43 miles to the U.S. 24 bridge, west of Defiance. This section is characterized by a broad meandering floodplain. Valley walls rise sharply in comparison to the surrounding terrain. The river banks support a healthy, forested corridor. The recreational portion, from the U.S. 24 bridge west of Defiance to the US 20/ S.R. 25 bridge at Perrysburg and Maumee, is 53 miles long. In this segment the river greatly changes in character. Its floodplain widens and its channel doubles in size; the topographic relief is much less pronounced; and forest cover becomes sparse. (Ohio DNR)
