State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has approved $60,000 in project funding to Portage County trails through the Clean Ohio Trails Fund, NatureWorks and Recreational Trails Program grants.


“Many residents of Portage County enjoy our beautiful natural areas by hiking or biking on the Headwaters Trail – myself included,” said Rep. Clyde. “Expanding this trail will provide even more opportunities for our residents to stay healthy and enjoy our scenic county.”


The Portage Park District requested $60,000 for acquisition of a new trail right of way that would connect Mantua Township to the Cuyahoga River trails in Portage County. This 1.35 mile trail will serve as the newest addition to the Headwaters Trail.


The Clean Ohio Trails Fund has awarded 21 grants for community projects that will acquire new land for trails, build and improve trail infrastructure and connect urban areas to recreational areas. The investments improve trails where Ohioans can hike, bike, run or roll and build healthy lifestyles.


Rep. Clyde represents Ohio’s 75th House District, which includes Kent and parts of central and southern Portage County. She is a member of the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
