YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Mill Creek MetroParks Board of Commissioners voted to extend the hours of the East Golf Hike and Bike Trail.

The trail will now be open from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. year round — the same hours that the MetroParks Bikeway is open. The East Golf Hike and Bike Trail had previously closed at dark.

“Extending the hours for East Golf Hike and Bike Trail to match those of the MetroParks Bikeway provides the opportunity for park users to access these facilities at times that better fits their schedule. Under the previous hours East Golf closed at dark, which for much of the year here in Ohio is before 6 p.m., making it near impossible for many to enjoy the trail after work. We hope this change will allow for more access to the facility for those seeking recreational opportunities in the MetroParks, said Aaron Young, executive director of the Mill Creek MetroParks.

The 1.5-mile trail runs from U.S. 224 to Shields Road.
