Mill Creek MetroParks clearing half of bikeway for winter walkers

Mill Creek MetroParks is making it a little easier for winter walkers on the bikeway.

They are plowing half of the bike trail between Metro Parks Farm and the Mahoning Avenue Park and Ride facility.

While one side will be cleared for walkers, the other side will remain snow-covered for cross country skiers that frequent the trail.

“Our hope is certainly that more people will get out during the winter months. When you’ve got the amount of snow that we have it can make it difficult but our efforts are to balance the bikeway for as many users as possible,” Mill Creek Metroparks Director Aaron Young told 21 News.

Young says the decision to plow half of the bikeway is being made to keep the MetroParks an appealing destination over all four seasons.

This is the first year the MetroParks will attempt to create a hybrid bike path during the winter season.
