Park & Trail Alerts

Rain, thunderstorms, and flooding can be hard on 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  Aug. 12, 2020.

Iron Horse Trail

Status Alert: Trail Closed

The trail is closed from Clark Ave. to 23rd St. for construction near the current trail. Re-routing of the trail will be necessary. The closure is expected to last until August 2020.

Middle Branch Trail

Status Alert: Bridge Replacement Project

The trail will be closed between Martindale Rd. and Spangler Ave. for a bridge replacement project from May 1 to Oct, 31, 2020.

Congressman Ralph Regula Towpath Trail Park

Status Alert: Towpath Trail Closure and Unpredictable Trail Conditions

Expect unpredictable trail conditions through August 2020 while a project near the Massillon Sewer Plant is happening. Use caution and plan on walking bikes through the area. An ongoing levee project near the Tuscarawas River in Massillon by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will impact travel for an extended period. The work will cause intermittent closures of the Towpath Trail. Weekday closures between Lake Ave. Trailhead in Massillon and Finefrock Rd. in Massillon will begin in Aug. 2020. The trail will be open on weekends. Please obey all construction and safety signs and be cautious of unpredictable trail conditions. This is a long term project that will affect various sections of the Towpath Trail in this area throughout 2020 and 2021.

Status Alert: Mountain Bike Trail Bypass and Trimming

Working with CAMBA volunteers, there is a bypass in progress around the meadow since it is a traditionally wet area and hard to access with large equipment for maintenance. The bypass is established and is currently a two way traffic trail until reroutes are complete. Look for small group (under 10 people) trail work days posted soon on the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association – Community Facebook page if you would like to help.
