The new trail widened and leveled the original paths, which still snake through the landscape along the brook but allow access by wheelchair and walker, allowing the disabled to enjoy the nature trail.  A long iron bench sits at the trailhead, allowing visitors to rest. The trail itself is a long concrete sidewalk that winds serpentine without distracting from the plants, trees and wild flowers.

County Mayor Carolyn Bowers states, “We are so pleased to have this trail completed for citizens to enjoy. We invite everyone to come out and take advantage of the new trail, opened just in time for National Trails Day on June 7. It’s a beautiful trail and I hope it is enjoyed by many, for years to come.”
