The new Rocky Reach Trail is taking shape. Construction for the one-mile first phase of the project should be complete by the spring, and eventually, the 5-mile trail will connect Lincoln Rock State Park with the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail. Funding is in place for the first and third phases of the project, but according to Bob Parlette of the Complete the Loop Coalition, between $100,000 and $150,000 is still needed for Phase 2. Fundraising is under way. For more information on the organization and how to donate, see their website at rockyreachtrail.com.
