2014 Trail News: 

New!
 Portions of Cole Rd Greenway East have been leased out to the Profeta Farm for organic hay production.  Expect to see tilling, ploughing and seeding of the soil.  We have made arrangements for the parking area in Tower field to continue to be used for trailer parking, including the staging of the spring pace.  The farm manager will also leave a 10 foot edge lapping all fields.  Current "cut throughs" will be mowed once the crop is established.

The retention basic section of the Lachenmayr Trail is now cleared and open.   The remainder of the trail is also open.   The broken culvert has been replaced, and the washed out culvert has been shored up.

The River Trail and River Adventure Adventure Trail are now cleared and open, up to the river crossing by the whirlpool.  We had to create some work-arounds on the trail so it is now marked with pink ribbon.

Check out the newly improved stream crossing on Cole Rd Greenway West, behind the Kowal's property!

The
Round Mountain White Trail that goes up the mountain off CR 629 in Stanton is cleared and open!

Pickell Park Trails are cleared and open.

If you come across sections of trail that need clearing or repair, please let us know by shooting an email  to president@readingtontrail.org
