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 March 27, 2015.

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.

Water has receded from all trails and crews have filled in major washout areas.  Expect soft trail surfaces that may have mud and silt on them. Once the trail surface hardens, crews will continue resurfacing repairs with equipment.

The portion between E. Maple St. and the North Canton YMCA Trailhead is permanently closed and will be relocated in the future.

The Cottonwood Trail will be closed for one month. Crews will be removing invasive species and performing some minor dredging in the wetland.
