Rain, thunderstorms, and flooding can be hard on the trails. Visitors are encouraged to check for updates before their visit and to follow all posted trail and parking area closing signs.  For safety reasons, trails are closed to all users while trail crews are using equipment to complete repairs and maintenance.  The following list reflects the most up to date trail closings and construction projects as of May 18, 2015.

Iron Horse Trail
The trail surface has been improved since tree clearing in March, caution is still advised.

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail (western Stark County)
For a list of Canalway construction and closure alerts visit the
Ohio & Erie Canalway Trail Updates page. View the Towpath Trail map.

Olde Muskingum Trail
A fresh limestone top coat has been put down on the trail.  Some areas are still soft after rolling, but should harden after the next rain storm compacts the surface.  Equestrians should use the grass berm next to the trail.

Petros Lake Park

The loop trail is still under construction.  Driveway paving has been delayed until May 18, the roadway is useable to the upper level of the park.  Several of the narrow bridges have been replaced with underground culverts and trail widening has occurred in these locations for improved use and safety of trail users.

West Branch Trail
Expect a rough trail surface north of 38th St. Resurfacing work will begin soon.

Sippo Lake Park
A tree is across the Lonesome Pine Trail and will be removed early this week.  The Cottonwood Trail is closed during the wetland and trail reconstruction project.
