West Branch State Park in Ravenna is a local treasure. A two Thousand acre lake and 5,000 acres of park means there’s lots of opportunities for things to do. It’s proximity to Akron and Cleveland means its a popular destination with a lot of amenities.

Fishing or skiing the lake, hiking the 14 miles of trails, staying at the award winning campground, swimming at the beach: If you can do it in Ohio, You can do it here.

But for a unique experience, you need to get your bike out on the 12 miles of trails that the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association Maintains. These trails range from meadows to rugged woods for every experience level. There are multiple loops to choose, all easily marked.

Head out to West Branch State Park sometime this summer to check out all that’s offered, and especially check out the bike trails for some challenges you just aren’t going to find elsewhere.

Akron Area Youth Fishing Ponds: Hidden Gems

AKRON, OH – Occupying the grounds of the old Akron fish hatchery, the Division of Wildlife District Three youth fishing ponds are open to anglers 15 and under beginning Memorial Day weekend and continuing through Labor Day. Equipment, bait, and assistance are provided at no charge thanks to the purchases of Ohio fishing licenses and federal contributions from the Sportfish Restoration Fund.

The youth fishing area is located at 912 Portage Lakes Drive in Akron.  The Area will be open for fishing from 9:00 A.M. until 7:00 P.M. every Saturday and Sunday as well as Memorial Day (Monday, May 31), Independence Day (July 4) and Labor Day (September 6). Species that be caught include but are not limited to bluegill, catfish, bass, crappie, and carp. Many fish meet or exceed Fish Ohio! length limits.

All young anglers must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while in the youth area, but adults are not required to have a fishing license. Adults are not allowed to fish in the youth area, but may assist their young anglers. Picnic tables and restroom facilities are available.
