Hello Trail Partners and Friends,
As expected, several trails will be closed due to flooding for a few days this week. We will work on any debris and clean up so the trails are ready for the weekend and more sunshine. As always, you can link, bookmark, or frequently check…. https://starkparks.com/park-trail-alerts/
Here is the list:
The Towpath Trail has several sections under water including north of Lake Lucerne and Lake Lucerne Trailhead, Lock 4 area and lower parking lot, under Lake Ave. and Rt. 21 in Massillon, and south of Wooster St. in Navarre.
On a related note, updates have been slower than anticipated but the Towpath Trail between Cherry St. and Lake Ave. is now closed as work begins on erosion control and bank stabilization. Fencing is in place with barricades and signage, we will continue to work with the Army Corps of Engineers and pass them along to you. The schedule is expected to remain the same with the closure lasting into 2022. Any references to the trail being open on weekends are no longer valid.
The Hoover Trail at Washington Square in North Canton has several flooded areas at this time.
The Middle Branch Trail north and south of Martindale Rd. has water over the trail.
