Seven TRED volunteers braved the early morning Georgia heat and humidity and begun marking the trails through the woods at the old GE site off Redmond Road Saturday. Now the property of the City of Rome, these future trails will give Romans a wonderful place to walk, run, or bike in nature along relatively flat terrain and when completed, there will be 4 miles of twisting routes for all ages to enjoy plus a 1-mile walking path along the perimeter. This public-private trail building partnership between the City of Rome government and TRED, is the second project to be undertaken with the first project being the Jackson Hill Trail network that now has 5 miles of looping trails around the old Fort Norton Civil War. Creating recreational trails on this beautiful property has long been a dream of the City of Rome and hopefully in the future the GE property can mirror the popularity and amenities that Ridge Ferry Park offers to residents and visitors.
More volunteers are needed for trailbuilding. If you would like to volunteer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
