The Portage Trail Walkers will hike at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at Forest Ridge Preserve. To reach the start of the hike, travel S.R. 43 north out of Kent, through Streetsboro and Aurora and northeast into Solon. Turn right (north) on S.R. 91 in Solon and go three miles. Turn right (east) on Miles Road for one mile and turn left (north) on Chagrin River Road for two miles. The trailhead is on the left.
The walk is wooded paths and the trail is four miles. It is a rigorous, steep walk uphill to the ridge and those attending should bring poles if they have them.
