We are happy to announce that we have 3 trail portions open to the public!
Segment 10 is complete, as well as a portion of segment 9. To access both 9 and 10, start at Sandy Beach County Park (see map below for start location). Segment 9 runs to the northeast approximately 3 miles and begins where segment 10 ends at E 30th Street. The trail is bordered by several private properties and roadways, please stay on the trail at all times. Once you reach the end of the completed trail on segment 9, turn back and return to Sandy Beach.
Segment 10 passes through Sandy Beach County Park and runs south to Hardy Dam County Marina. There is limited parking at the Marina, so please park at Sandy Beach. See map below.
A portion of segment 4 is also open. The Brower Loop, a nearly 1.5 mile section of the trail, was recently completed. Enter Brower Park and park at the upper lot for boat trailer parking. You’ll find the start of the loop just on the other side of the amphitheater. See the second map below.
