Trails Meeting Summary
Polk County Parks and Recreation held its monthly trails meeting at Saluda Outfitters. More than 20 people were in attendance. We discussed the current state of Little White Oak Mountain, planned a community hike for Weed Patch Mountain for April 12th (RSVP by emailing us by April 10th. Shuttle is provided to and from the trailhead) as well as the possibility of another community hike later.
The upcoming River Stewardship Program was discussed with plans for a river meeting to be held at a later date.
Grants for Little White Oak Mountain are being submitted and more are being worked on. Parks & Rec are optimistic about the outcome.
A representative from BRAG updated the community on the possible Hogback Mountain trail and rock climbing/bouldering project. Outlook is very positive for the town approving the project.
Parks & Rec are looking at working with Mountain True, Wilderness Cove Tubing and other organizations to have the entire Green River "adopted" in sections for cleanup and monitoring.
Possibility of river access at the Hwy 9 bridge below Lake Adger in the future.
