2015 Trail Projects!

 

All the projects listed here are the result of generous donations of our members and supporters, the funds raised by the annual Half Marathon and 5K and the Cookie Ride, the dedicated efforts of the members of TTT and the support and coordination with local government.

 

The Recyclers Bench that was crushed this summer by a falling tree has been rebuilt and improved thanks to Bruce Willis and Moses Schwartz and funding for materials by Tri-County Triangle Trail!  Look for it at mile 12 midway between Frankfort and Hopewell Park.

 

Covered Bridge Completed! The bridge is located on the trail 1.6 miles east of the Robinson Rd in Fayette County. The adjoining property owner has also contributed to the project with funding and material support.  

Two miles of new trail between Jamision and Bush Roads west of Washington Court House has been completed and is open for use.  Funding was provided by Recreational Trails Grant awarded earlier this year by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and a local contribution by Tri-County Triangle Trail in the amount of $27,000.  This is the first of several projects needed to connect Washington Court House with Wilmington.  The trail runs parallel to US 22 on the north side.  Additionally a grant has been awarded to the Clinton County Park District to construct up to 6 miles of the trail in Clinton County

 

New Grant Application Submitted!

 

Tri-County Triangle Trail has partnered with the City of Washington to apply for a Clean Ohio Trail Fund to construct two connector multi-use trails.  One will connect the trail head at the Robinson Road west approximately 2 miles.  This will eliminate the 2.4 mile marked route on roads and eliminate the SR 753 crossing.  The second multi-use trail will connect Eyman Park on the west side of Washington Court House to the Fayette County YMCA and will follow a scenic route along Paint Creek.

 

This grant was submitted on February 1, 2015 to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  The 195 page document was coordinated and submitted by Jim Schneider of Trailworks.  We will know if the grant is successful in September or October. Jim has assisted TTT previously on the Jamison to Bush Rd. Project.     

 

This map shows how these connectors through Washington Court House fit current and future regional trail hub in Washington Court House with connections to Xenia, Wilmington, Circleville and Chillicothe!

User Guidelines For Multi-use Trails

 

Please help make the trail safe for everyone by using the following guidelines:

Be Courteous.

All trail users, including bicyclists, joggers, walkers, wheelchairs, skateboarders, bladers and skaters, should be respectful of other users regardless of their mode, speed or level of skill.

Be Predictable.

Travel in a consistent and predictable manner. Always look behind before changing positions on the trail.

Don't Block The Trail.

When in a group or with your pets, use no more than half the trail so as not to block the flow of other users.

Keep Right.

Stay as near to the right side of the trail as is safe, except when passing another user.

Pass On The Left.

Pass others, going your direction, on their left. YIELD TO SLOWER AND ON-COMING TRAFFIC. Use hand signals to alert those behind you of your moves. Look ahead and back to make sure the lane is clear before you pull out and pass. Pass with ample separation and do not move back to the right until safely past. REMEMBER: KIDS AND PETS CAN BE UNPREDICTABLE.

Stopping.

When stopping, move off of the trail. Beware of others approaching you from behind and make sure they know you are pulling over.

Give Audible Warning BEFORE Passing.

Give a clear signal by using voice, bell or horn before passing. Give the person you are passing time to respond. Watch for their reaction. So that you can hear these signals, don't wear headphones on the trail.

Obey All Traffic Signs And Signals.

Use extra caution where trails cross streets. Stop at all signs and intersections and be cautious when crossing driveways. When entering or crossing a trail yield to traffic on the trail.

Be Respectful Of Private Property.

Trails are open to the public, but often the land on the side of the trail is private property. Please respect all property rights.

Clean Up Litter.

Do not leave glass, paper, cans, plastic, or any other debris on or near a trail. If you drop something, please remove it immediately.

 

 

Always Exercise Due Care And Caution!

Trail Volunteers clear dead trees from 2 miles of trail!  On Saturday, January 30 volunteers worked to clear dozens of dead trees from along the 2 miles of trail between Jamison and Bush roads in Fayette County.  The trees, mostly Ash, presented a hazard to users if they fell across the trail and clearing them will allow healthy trees to grow improving the trail.   Thanks to Bruce Willis for organizing the work and Tom Pieratt, Moses Schwartz, Adam Willis, Randy and others.  

MARK YOUR CALENDAR!  

 

The  Tri-County Triangle Trail Cookie Ride will be August 21, 2016.  This will be our 22nd consecutive year for this major fund raiser for trail projects!  

 

Details will be published here soon!
