We are working with the City of Thomas to create a 5 mile hike/bike trail system in the new Thomas Waterfront Park. Work on the trail system, which will be over 5 miles when complete, began fall ’09 with design by IMBA and ground breaking with volunteers from Tucker County High School. Since the snow thawed in Spring 2010, 30 different volunteers have contributed over 275 hours of work to complete over a mile and half of new trail and build a 16’ bridge. We also cleared the entire trail system of fallen logs so work can progress smoothly again in the spring. We will be working with the City of Thomas over the winter to develop rules, trail maps and markers. A big thanks to all our great volunteers and to the Oakland Foundation and Lowe’s of Oakland for their generous support of the project. Work will continue as the weather permits and resume in the spring. Please contact the North Fork Watershed project if you would like to volunteer on this project.
