Trail Condition Update 8/18/14:

 

Sections of the trail between mile marker 9 and 12 have been paved.  This includes the washout area between the bridges (about mile marker 10) and several additional sections of rough trail.  The ride between Maple Grove Rd and  Frankfort is now much more enjoyable!  Thanks to the Ross County Park District for making these needed repairs.

 

The trail between Larrick Lane and Clinton Road has been staying dry.  Some wet spots with algae growth had caused some hazardous conditions.  The spots have been treated with an organic compound to discourage growth of mold, moss and algae. There a few trail hazards between Mile Marker 27 and 28 in Fayette County near Camp Grove Rd.  They have been marked.  

 

The trail from Chillicothe to Washington Court House has been mowed, cleared and honeysuckle cut back thanks to the Ross County Park District, Fayette County Engineer and Tri-County Trail volunteers!

 

It is again time for walnuts to start falling so keep aware of conditions on the trail.  If you are walking feel free to kick a few off the trail!  You may be preventing an accident.  Also help by picking up litter and removing small branches that may fall on the trail.  If users will help with these tasks it will keep the trail looking better and safer for all users!  Thank you in advance for your help!

2014 Cookie Ride

 

 

Riders take a rest at the Washington CH Cookie Stop!

 

A total of 142 riders took part in the 20th Tri-County Triangle Trail Cookie Bicycle Ride on August 17, 2014.  Riders enjoyed great weather, great cookies and wonderful rural scenery in the 20th edition of the Tri-County Triangle Trail Cookie Ride!

 

The ride is a major fund raiser for trail projects, including maintenance, facilities and construction of new trail.  We thank everyone who supported the trail by riding and purchasing t-shirts.  A special thanks to Wendy and Dave from Maryland for purchasing 10 t-shirts!  

 

A big thanks to the volunteers that worked on the trail to get it ready for the ride, baked cookies, SAG support, helped with registration and set up refreshments for riders!  Also a thanks to the Ross County Park District for getting the trail mowed and cleared of debris in Ross County  and the Fayette County Engineers office for mowing the Fayette County section of the trail.

 

If you were not able to ride Sunday, now is a good time to go check out the trail.  It is in great shape and with our mild summer weather so far an excellent opportunity to check it out!  Also stop  and visit the Hopewell National Historical Park on Sulfur Lick Rd 6.5 miles east of Frankfort and about 6 miles west of Chillicothe.  The site is on the trail and is a wonderful place to visit.  You can enjoy lunch in Frankfort at several restaurants.

 

Also check out the only public wetland site in Fayette County located at the Robinson Rd trail head parking area 1 mile east of SR 753.  A new informational sign has been posted at the boardwalk entrance at he parking lot.  You can enjoy a 1000’ boardwalk stroll into the wetland and a vernal pool.  

 

Again thanks to everyone who made the Cookie Ride a success and hopefully see you again next year!  Watch for info on the annual Pie Ride from the Hopewell National Historical Park to Frankfort (13 miles round trip) this fall!
