Polk Trails Newsletter
April 2022
Every month, community stakeholders meet to share updates about area trails. The meetings are open to the public and will be in person this month! Send us your questions and updates ahead of time if you can't make it!

Monday, March 28, 2022 at 6pm (The meeting this evening is at Saluda Outfitters in Saluda, NC)

MONDAY April 25, 2022 06:00 PM
@ The Picnic Shelter across the street from Stearns Gym. We will have the fire pit going if the wind cooperates. In case of inclement weather we will meet in Stearns Gym, 105 N. Peak, Columbus

Most trails, if they are open, may not have public facilities that are open, so check ahead of time. If you are sick, PLEASE stay home. If a trail is crowded, please travel to a different spot so you can practice social distancing. Other trail courtesies also still apply: keep dogs on-leash, take your trash with you, etc. Thanks for doing your part!

TUESDAY, April 5, 2-4pm @ ICC Library Loop
TUESDAY, April 12, 2-4pm @ Rec Complex
TUESDAY, April 19, 9-11am @ Tom Raymond Fitness Trail
TUESDAY, April 26, 9-11am @ Alexander's Ford

If you would like to help us with trail work, please contact recreation@polknc.org and we will let you know when additional workdays are scheduled. If you feel safer working on your own, feel free to walk a trail, picking up trash and moving small branches from the trails. Please don't cut any branches; if a trail needs more attention, email recreation@polknc.org and we will take care of it or bring it to that trail manager's attention.

We manage trail work days, various partnerships and other trail-related initiatives in the county.

The online calendar has been updated for the month of April
