Due to a trail closure the Portage Trail Walkers hike planned for Saturday will be changed to Big Bend Trailhead to Mustill Store.
To reach the start of the hike, which begins at 8:30 a.m., those attending should travel S.R. 303 west out of Hudson into Peninsula. Turn left (south) at the first light on Akron-Peninsula Road, and go eight miles. At the "T" intersection with Portage Trail on the left, go straight onto Portage Path (same road, different name). Go 0.5 miles across the Cuyahoga River. Take Merriman Road (left) for about a half mile and follow the signs to the Big Bend Trailhead on the left.
The walk is a flat hike and bike trail with crushed limestone. The distance is 6.5 miles if hikers walk to Mustill Store and back.
