Section of bike and hike trail to be paved

Contractors have begun repaving a four-mile section of the Summit County Bike and Hike Trail, heading east from the Silver Lake trailhead, 2985 Kent Road in Stow. The area will be closed for up to four weeks.

Sometime during the closure, the Silver Springs trailhead, 5027 Stow Road in Stow, will be closed a few days so contractors can asphalt the 33.5-mile trail's last unpaved stretch, currently about 1,000 feet of crushed limestone. Signs will be posted at each site. For information, call 330-867-5511 or visit
