Work Started on New 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.
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.
2 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
The project is a cooperative project with the Fayette County Commissioners and Tri-County
Triangle Trail, Inc. With the county providing the administration and processing
the reimbursement costs. The purchase of the right-of-way was made possible by a
cooperative effort by the Clinton County Park District and Tri-County Triangle Trail,
Inc. The funding for preparation of the grant application and the project inspections
costs were provided by Tri-County Triangle Trail, Inc. This funding provided by
the generous donations, dues of members and participants of Tri-County Triangle Trail,
Inc. Events including the half marathon and Cookie Ride!
On July 13, 2015 Tri-County Triangle Trail, Inc. authorized spending of $400 to repair
the Recyclers covered bench that was recently destroyed by a falling tree 2.4 miles
east of Frankfort and the purchase of a hydraulic flail mower and hydraulic controller
to mow banks and keep evasive weeds from encroaching on the trail.

Thanks to all the participants, sponsors, the Village of Frankfort and volunteers
(especially Jo Sager and Dave Pigott) that made this event possible. Perfect weather,
a beautiful country course on a scenic trail made this years event one too remember!

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!
