PORTAGE BIKE AND HIKE:
Portage Bike and Hike Trail 
>Riverside trail from Fred Fuller to Middlebury/261
"I was told that this new trail is paved and follows the river, but it's a very short section. You could connect to the Summit Metro trail off of North River Rd by following the bike trail signs and using Munroe Falls/N River Rd to connect to this one. But it turns to gravel when you get to Fred Fuller Park." -Misty

>PORTAGE Hike and Bike Trail Kent Parks section
Asphalt paved, 1.5 miles. Planned extension to Tannery Park in next few years.
Go here to watch a video of part of this trail. Caution: Skaters be careful to step over the connections between asphalt and bridges along this path. Asphalt is smooth and bridges are skatable, however where the paths meet there are sometimes edges that are not 'roll-able'.

>Towner's Woods to Ravenna Stadium
"There is also the trail from Kent to Ravenna, which last time I skated it was paved from Beckwith's Orchard to Kent, at which point we could continue down by the river or hit the neighborhood across from Roosevelt." - Rachel
 
>Kent State University Campus
Kent State's campus connects the Portage Bike and Hike trail using the campus's esplanade. Refer to the above link for the full map of the Portage Bike and Hike trail. Campus information can be found at www.kent.edu.

SUMMIT METRO TRAIL:
http://www.summitmetroparks.org/ParksAndTrails/BikeAndHikeTrail.aspx

>Munroe Falls/North River Rd entrance towards Route 91 in Stow/Munroe Falls, onto Silver Lake Park
"Paved trail, good condition. Watch out for the slatted bridge at the bottom of the first steep hill when coming from Munroe Falls Rd in Kent. (Keep your weight on your heels, not the balls of your feet, and you'll be good... vibrates your legs lol).  Awesome rolling hills, passing a golf course, a few small ponds, etc. Bathroom stop in Munroe Falls with a drinking fountain. Trail goes UNDER Rt 91 and then on to Silver Lake Park." - Misty
  
>Munroe Falls/North River Rd towards Rt. 59 (crosses street and continues to Stow High School via roads)
"Paved trail, good condition. Crosses Route 59 at a street light - be prepared to stop. A great deal of the trail utilizes existing roadway with marked bike lanes, etc." - Misty

LAKE METRO PARKS
>Lake Metro Parks Greenway Corridor, south out of Painesville between Rt. 44 and Ravenna Rd
http://www.traillink.com/trail/lake-metroparks-greenway-corridor.aspx
"There are a couple of hills, but most is fairly flat. Skating south out of Painesville is a little harder cause you are going up in elevation. Coming back towards town is easy.....you can coast cause you are actually going down gradually in elevation." - Randy

"This one has a nice map feature, but is obviously not 100% accurate as I know the Mantua-Garrettsville trail is not paved (check out the long one from Warren to Ashtabula!)" - Rachel
 
"Me and my dad bike on the ohio erie trail that goes from Rockside road into Akron and then another trail continues all the way into Dalton. They also have a train that runs along side that you can take your bike on for 2 dollars." - Leah
