Looking for a unique gift? How about naming a small bridge ($5000), bench ($250 or $500), or picnic table ($600) in honor or memory of a special someone? Would the hard-to-buy-for person who has everything appreciate an annual or lifetime trail membership? Trail memberships qualify for the matching donation.

As we continue to improve the trail our needs remain great: we need to refresh crushed limestone on several miles of the main trail, add 8 miles of crushed limestone on the Sligo Spur after grubbing, grading and drainage work. We need fuel for equipment and materials and materials for 2 more trestles to be decked and railed on the Sligo Spur. For more information, please see the flyer on the Sligo Spur improvement project. Sligo Spur Improvements
We also hope to establish a fund for ongoing maintenance and emergency repairs.
