The City of Washington Court House continues to make great progress in completing the trail through the city.  Work has started on the bridge across the East Fork of Paint Creek behing Washington Cemetery on the east side of the city.  The trail will be completed from the cemetery, across the creek, and on to Chillicothe Road.  Work to get the trail under North Street and the new bridge at S.

The Washington Court House Tree Committee has received a grant to create a nature preserve at the Willamette retention basin located near the intersection of Robinson and Bogus Roads.

TWO NEW MILES OF ADENA RECREATIONAL TRAIL OPENED!
 
A dedication of a 2 mile extension of the Adena Trail from Brad Lytle Park in Frankfort west to the new Adena School complex was held after the ride with comments from Ross County Commissioner Hirsch and Gary Mercamp with the Ross County Park District.  This is a wonderful section of trail and we invite everyone to come see it.  Access is from the school or from Brad Lytle Park on S. Main in Frankfort.  There is also an extension of the trail under the bridge so that you can ride/walk from the park to the trail going east! Click Here  to read about Chillicothe Gazette coverage of the event.
