2015 Trail News
 The power company has put up post and rail fencing under the power lines at various locations to deter non-authorized motor vehicles.  There are pass-through and go-rounds in the fence for hikers and horseback riders.

Portions of Cole Rd Greenway East  (Tower field) have been leased out to the Profeta Farm for organic hay production.  Expect to see tilling, ploughing and seeding of the soil.  There is room for 1 trailer to back in and park under the tower.  We are working out alternative parking locations.

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!

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 ccroton@yahoo.com
