Recently we rode on the section of the Tow Path trail from the trail head at Fairview Avenue to the Summit Lake area. We observed mile markers of two different colors: near Barberton blue and Akron brown(or maybe it was in the other order).
I have had with in the past few months the pleasure of speaking with a gentleman who mentioned being involved in a surveying project on the Tow Path trail and who would be placing the mile markers that were color coordinated based on trail responsibility, i.e. Metro Parks Serving Summit County, Ohio Department of Natural Resources. I neglected to get that persons contact information so I am in the process of checking with my sources on the meaning of these colors, and I will share the received information.
