Harrison Rail Trails Continues Improvement Efforts

Posted: Updated:

The non-profit organization, Harrison Rail Trails was established less than a year ago and is dedicated to cleaning and expanding the county's trails.

"I'm just so proud of our community and it's just such a pleasure. Harrison County Commissioners are doing a wonderful job in supporting out Harrison County Rail Trails North & South," said Diana Druga, Harrison Rail Trails board member.

Friday's volunteers worked together to build four kiosks.

"We'll start North View will have one, we'll have one at the VA trail head, one at Camden Avenue, and the fourth one will go into Lost Creek," said Druga.

The kiosks will serve as an information board.

"On one side we will have the trail information, on the other side we will have community boards where the community can post things going on in their area," said Druga.

Marsh Lumber donated supplies while All-Star Builders donated their time. Board member Bob Martinez said the improvement project is personal.

"I bicycle. I use them two, three times a week so it's important to have them safer, better, and the more people use the trails the more we can get funds to make the trails better and safer," said Martinez.

Druga said her main goal is building connectivity, "Open up our rail trails here along Harrison County. Right now we have about 12 miles that are inaccessible to use and get these open to the community to create a healthier environment within Harrison County."

On August 27 the group will host a beginners bike ride at the VA Park access point for more information, click here
