A small group of Traildogs completed the installation of the gravel pavers around the six pieces of exercise equipment at the ADA trailhead on Monday, October 1. The Corps of Engineers had generously provided five additional rolls of the paver material, which was exactly the amount required. As the materials weather and settle, this will provide a very stable surface in and around the equipment and will meet all American Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements at the site.
All we need to complete the planned work is installing some field stone on the south side of the equipment to provide a border from the open field. We are seeking a supply of field stone to complete this project.
On Thursday, Oct. 11, we had five volunteers assisting with the cleaning and trimming of the ADA handicap accessible section of the Trail. The trees and bushes that line the outer edge of the trail were encroaching on the trail as they reach for any available sunlight.
In additional there were several large limbs that had fallen as a result of several storms. We trimmed the entire length of the paved and elevated trail and removed all of the limb debris. It was perfect weather for the work day, and within two hours we had completed the task. Thanks to Gail, Dan, Loren, Derwood, and myself, the ADA trail is in pristine condition.
