Freedom Trail
yellow bar History & Wildlife

Starting near the Portage Hike & Bike Trail in Kent, this multipurpose trail – on land owned by METRO Regional Transit Authority – follows an unused railroad corridor. Phase II construction, near completion, will extend to Eastwood Avenue in Akron. Eventually, it will connect with downtown.


The Freedom Trail travels 4.2 miles between the Middlebury Lot to Tallmadge Circle. When completed, this eight-mile multipurpose trail will connect Akron and Kent and become another popular linear park managed by Summit Metro Parks.

Please use trail etiquette while enjoying the Freedom Trail.
