Early on the morning of June 17, high winds downed many trees and limbs on the trail, especially north near Corwin.

Adapting a Gift from the Past

Last winter, Friends volunteers doing some routine culvert-cleaning on the trail discovered a hidden gem near South Lebanon: a sturdy drainage culvert built in our trail’s railroad past.

Root Cutting Complete!

In what will probably be the biggest volunteer effort of 2016, volunteers logged 250 hours of work April 18-20 cutting tree roots along the trail berms from Grandin Rd. north to the park boundary at Hedges Rd.

Trees for the Trail

Our park wouldn’t be what it is without volunteers getting down and dirty!  Recently, nine of them descended on 200 empty plastic containers and 200 baby trees & shrubs in Rick Forrester's backyard to pot them up until they can be planted along the trail later in the fall.
