Awesome - I wish Celveand land owners could cooperate like the folks in Akron seem to so the trail can start at the lake and go down the canal system to New Philly. We use the Mustill Store portion frequently. It is safe and a great place for a run.

It is great to see that this particulary difficult (and expensive) piece of the trail is finally going to be underway.
We rode from the Mustill Store to Penninsula and took the train back this weekend. What a great way to spend the afternoon with my family.
If you haven't visited the towpath trail, make a point of it.

I love the towpath, and it will be great when this is finally completed. Has anyone heard of an update on the Summit Lake floating trail yet?
I have biked from Deep Lock to the part of trail just outside of Summit County about a 30 mile round trip.

As a bicyclist, and someone who saw what is supposed to be "downtown leg" today, I am disappointed. To avoid the sidewalk a blue line was painted next to the curb along Main Street to designate the bike lane. Cars park in this area, buses pull in and out of this area, and probably someone is going to get killed in this area. Hopefully I am wrong and this is not the final "downtown leg", because if it is someone should be fired for stupidity.

The blue line you saw on Main Street and possibly throughout the City of Akron has nothing to do with bikes or bike lanes. It is the course line for participants in the Akron Roadrunner Marathon to follow. It created a lot of confusion when they first painted it, like you, most people thought it was supposed to be a bike lane.
I hope you'll visit downtown again, particulary when this newly started piece is completed. You will be able to park by Advanced Elastomers / Spaghetti Warehouse and ride the trail north well out of Summit County (I'm not sure where the north terminus is currently).
