I rode the towpath section of OTET from Akron to Canal Fulton on Sunday 8/25. In addition to the Hickory Street detour in north Akron, I found the towpath to be really rough south of downtown Akron. It's not just crushed limestone but actual gravel and a less than smooth path in some areas due to ongoing construction activity.

Also, I noticed a sign saying that the towpath is closed M-F 7AM-4PM with no detour signage, So be advised that it is best to have wide tires when riding the towpath approaching the Akron area. Unexpected closures may occur where you will need to self-navigate and find your own detour.
