Ravenna Rd.
This is the point where Rt. 608 begins. Near hereis the Greenway Corridor. It is 4.4 miles long for bicyclists & walkers. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, founded in 1827, owns a prominent place in the cultural and economic history of the United States and that of our own Lake County. Countless memorable events mark the progress and succession of the railroad during its 160-year span of operation. In 1870, the original tracks that linked the nation's rail system to Lake Erie were laid in Lake County. This was later acquired by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in the 1890s. Yearly, the railroad moved some five million tons of coal and iron in and out of Painesville. Today, Lake Metropaks is proud to officially open The Greenway Trail Corridor using the same route as our forefathers so many years ago.
