Can you believe it? We’ve reached the last official post in the Trail of the Week series. We’ve gone through all 23 of the area trail locations we present on the JCTA web site. It is coincidental that tomorrow is also the American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day.
The Riney B Park Trail is a linear paved trail that you have to do as an out and back. I like starting from the northeast side of the St. Joseph Jessamine parking lot, but you can start from the Riney B Park parking lot and do all or just part of the trail. Its a good trail to take on a lunch break if you work in the area. Parks and Rec would like to extend the trail to form a loop trail, but I don’t know the details of where it would go or when it may be started. As usual, getting the funding is an issue.
That’s about it. Let us know of any publicly accessible trails over 3/4 miles we don’t cover that you’d like to see on the site. And you may notice we don’t have much information on horseback riding trails. We could use someone with expertise to help us out with that.
Although this is the last weekly trail post, we plan to keep up with posting something every Friday on Facebook. Our default topics will be something we have photos of, so animals, birds and wildflowers. We may have some other special topic from time to time, so stay tuned.
