Blueway Trail Construction Update
More improvements have been made on the Painted Turtle Trail and Woodland Loop Trail. More trail mix (slate gravel) has been put down, meaning more accessibility on our trails.
Much has been done in the past month. Gravel and rock edging has been put down around the community garden and along the Woodland Loop Trail. The outdoor theater has been completed, and a curving staircase was built to reach Roswell Road safely.
Despite the inclement weather work continues on improvements to the existing trails. Some of the preliminary preparation work has started on River Cane and Woodland Loop trails near our building on Roswell Road. In addition, Tailored Trails has started to lay the new slate chip trail material on the Beaver Tail Trail at Emma. This surface is more durable than the wood chips we've been using. More importantly it compacts well creating a uniform surface making it possible for those with mobility challenges be outside in nature. We will be adding edging and boardwalk where needed to navigate the wettest parts of the Preserve.
We are happy to report after receiving approval from the City we have begun initial work with improvements to the existing trails. Our trail building partners, Tailored Trails have made improvements to existing bridges on the Beaver Tail Trail at Emma and on the Woodland Loop Trail near the Community Garden.
