Blackhand Trail Closing

Work begins Monday, September 16, at Blackhand Gorge to repair their over four mile bike path.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said beginning Monday the trail that runs the length of the gorge will close until the project is completed.

The improvements were made possible after ODNR and the Friends of Blackhand Gorge reached an agreement with Enterprise Product Partners on an appropriate path for the ATEX Pipeline.

The organizations worked together to determine the least impactful method and location for pipeline access to the gorge. In return Enterprise is having the entire bike path repaved. The project is expected to take five weeks to complete.
