The Heritage Corridors of Bath Scenic Byway was established to preserve and enhance the historic and scenic rural character of the community. The byway connects the 19th century hamlets of Ghent, Bath Center, Hammond's Corners and historic Hale Farm and Village with the Stony Hill School House, the Bath Nature Preserve, and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It lies in proximity to the Ohio and Erie Canal. Early Bath homes, barns, cemeteries and mills line the byway as it winds through areas of scenic and natural beauty.

The vision of the Heritage Corridors of Bath Scenic Byway is to protect for future generations the scenic and rural views that have come to characterize Bath Township. By also promoting and preserving the unique heritage as part of the Western Reserve, an enriching and pleasurable experience is provided for those who travel the byway.

The Heritage Corridors of Bath Master Plan is available through Bath Township.
