Trail Update 6/28/14:


Sections of the trail between mile marker 9 and 12 have been paved.  This includes the washout area between the bridges (about mile marker 10) and several additional sections of rough trail.  The ride between Maple Grove Rd and  Frankfort is now much more enjoyable!  Thanks to the Ross County Park District for making these needed repairs.


The trail between Larrick Lane and Clinton Road has been staying dry.  Some wet spots with algae growth had caused some hazardous conditions.  The spots have been treated with an organic compound to discourage growth of mold, moss and algae.


The trail from City of Chillicothe to Austin at SR 138 (mile marker 21.5) crossing is in pretty good shape.  It has been recently mowed, however there is still some honeysuckle encroachment in places.  The trail from Plano Rd. west to the Fayette County line (mile marker 19 to 24.5) is in need of cleaning, mowing and honeysuckle cut back.  There is considerable debris on the trail and the trail is down to one lane in some spots, but it is passable.  Ride with caution!


The Fayette County section of trail from the Ross County line is in pretty good shape.  The trail was swept and mowed about 3 weeks ago with gravel swept off intersections.  The Fayette Progressive School volunteers have mowed the berm, cleaned up the kiosk area and used back pack blowers on the section of trail from Robinson Rd. To Bogus Road.
