Celebrate Trails 2021.jpg

Every spring, the team at Rails-to-Trails Conservancy encourages folks to shake off the winter and celebrate America’s amazing trails. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s celebration will be simple: they are asking people to share their trail experiences to show how valuable trails are in connecting us and inspiring wellness.  In addition, they will provide resources to help you plan solo, family- and household-friendly, virtual and other trail adventures—plus, opportunities to win awesome trail gear and other prizes!  

For more information on this Rails-to-Trails initiative go to the Celebrate Trails Day hub of the RTC website or follow #CelebrateTrails on social media for updates.   You can see ways to safely enjoy the trails even in these uncharted times at #SharetheTrail

New ADA Trail at NKHP

An ADA assessable trail now improves access for everyone to experience the park.  The new trail is short but affords people with wheelchairs or strollers to view the ponds near the Miller Bay Road parking lot.  The two man-made drainage ponds from an old homestead and have produced sightings of otter and wood duck in past years. Next time you are out to the park, take a quick walk to appreciate the new trail and the ponds.
