“A multi-use trail system offering great views of Arkabutla Lake.”— Chris Lockhart
Phase 2 of the project will expand the trail east towards Tulane Road and provide a more intermediate biking / hiking experience. Users seeking a longer trail will be rewarded with scenic overlooks of Arkabutla Lake. Phase 2 is expected to be complete by late 2016 or spring of 2017.
Phase 3 of the project will extend the trail even further east to Highway 51. The terrain and elevation of this section of the trail will be suitable for advanced biking or more strenuous hiking. When all 3 phases are complete the trail will be able to provide a variety of conditions suitable for all user skill levels.
