Clearing brush along the fitness trail


Today volunteers worked at the Gilbertville Fitness Trail – painting the gate, clearing brush at the entrance and along the trail, and making the trail more inviting. The ten fitness stations were installed along the former railroad bed over the summer. The stations include various stretches and strength exercises, often two exercises at each station.

Great progress was made and the trail is nearly ready for the official opening on Saturday, October 25th at 2pm. The welcoming signs along Main Street will be installed in the coming weeks. Please take a walk and explore the fitness equipment and the Ware River! If driving you can park at the New Furnace Landing with the gazebo, and if you are walking the trail begins at the yellow and blue gate opposite the Hardwick House of Pizza.
