New Paved Section of PORTAGE Hike & Bike Trail Open!
On Sat. Dec. 12th, the section of the PORTAGE Hike & Bike Trail from Oakwood St. in Ravenna to Lake Rockwell Rd. in Franklin Township was re-opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Nearly 100 people were in attendance at the event including Honorable Judge Bob Berger, Senator John Ekland, Ohio State Representative Kathleen Clyde, Portage Park District Commissioners, Portage Park District Foundation Members and Members of the Beckwith Orchards Family. The PORTAGE, which starts at Peck Rd. in Ravenna and runs all the way to Crain Ave. and continues through Kent, is now a singular stretch of asphalt paved surface spanning over 8 miles.
