COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio officials say trails around the state will soon see improvements thanks to millions of dollars in state and federal grants.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources announced Thursday that $6 million in state funding and $1.68 million in federal funding will go toward creating and improving recreation trails in Ohio.

The state grants come from the Clean Ohio Trails Fund, and will go to community projects that complete regional trail systems, create links to statewide trails and connect urban areas with outdoor recreation areas. Twenty-five miles of new trail will be developed using the $6.1 million.

The federal funding is part of the Recreation Trails Program, and will focus on projects that create and maintain trails, improve access for those with disabilities and provide trail safety and environment education.
