Built between 1825 and 1845, this series of locks raised and lowered canal boats a total of 67 feet. The upper lock, near the "Loramie Summit," is the high point between Cincinnati and Toledo. Five of the original locks are along the trail; the sixth is out of sight across Loramie Creek. The Miami & Erie Canal provided service between Cincinnati and Toledo until destroyed by the 1913 flood.
