As some of you may know, TRTC has been involved in a multi-year project to replace 3 large (36” diam.) drainage culverts in the mid-section of this trail. This has not been an easy project and has been delayed several times by high lake levels and the fact that the Wildlife Commission does not allow any mechanized equipment in this area. Notwithstanding these factors, we are making progress with several workdays per year and numerous efforts by 2 or 3 volunteers.
Good weather in early December allowed for the installation of Culvert #1 and the completion of the Fill over Culvert #2. Form Work and Concrete Pouring on Culvert #1 was done during the week by several retirees. Fill Work on culverts 1 and 2 were done by larger work groups on 2 Saturdays. Work on Culvert #3 will start this Spring on good weather days.
If You Are Interested in Working on This Project: We will have work days on weekdays and on weekends. We do more than just “Pick and Shovel” work – there is usually trash to be picked up, and limbs to be tossed off the trail. If you would like to join us for Exercise, Fresh Air and Sunshine send your name and e-mail address to

We are also looking for someone who lives in the 751 South development to be our representative in that neighborhood. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, let us know.
