The Portage Trail Walkers will gather at 9 a.m. Saturday to hike from Towne Centre to S.R. 8. The flat, graded trail has a packed gravel base and pavement and is four miles long if participants turn around at Barlow Bridge, or six miles to S.R. 8 and back.
Those wishing to participate can take S.R. 59 west from Kent toward Stow. Turn right (northwest) on Fishcreek Road (at Speedy Muffler), then right (north) on S.R. 91. Turn right into Town Centre and park at the east end of the parking lot.
