It's been a busy month on the trail. We had rain interspersed with some nice days. Our friend and expert photographer Chris McClintock is out there almost every morning taking fabulous photos, which she posts on her Facebook page. Check them out — especially if you aren't lucky enough to be able to visit the DRHT daily.
We’re still trying to scope out improvements to our parking lots, particularly the smaller ones at Comorn Road and Indiantown Road. We’re hoping to get a grant to get the work started. We should learn sometime soon if our application was approved. We continue to look for opportunities to acquire an acre or two at road crossings so that we can add to or expand our parking spaces.
Today I met with a neighboring landowner to talk about a trespassing issue. Some bike riders had turned off on his farm road, which parallels the trail. While we were chatting, the trespassers came riding by. We stopped them and they told us that this was their first time on the trail and they got confused about where to go. It got me thinking that while those of us who are out on the trail all the time aren’t going to get lost, visitors who are new to the DRHT can get confused by the road crossings. It’s rare, but it happens. We need to think about where some signage could help our newest trail users.
Hope you've been taking advantage of the warm November weather to get out for a walk or ride. See you out there!
