South Lakes Park Trail

Update on South Lakes Park Trail. I have been working with the city on formalizing a plan to expand the current trails. To complete this it will rely primarily on volunteer help. The city will help but are short-staffed and have a full schedule of other projects – including Hartlee Field trail updates and well as one other that is still in the early planning.
 
Gary and Fince have graciously given me permission to lead the project. The initial plan was to build all the way up to the school and back but we decided not to eat all the elephant at once, so we are splitting it into 2 phases.
 
The first phase is to build around the current gravel path. One of the requirements from the city is that bike traffic does not cross the gravel walking path. So as you can see in the image below the trail will surround it. There will be an entrance and exit at the end of the downhill section (yes we have a plan to keep it) on the south end and at the front of the entrance. Bikes are allowed on the path, we just don’t want people blasting across it as people walk.
 
The drawing below is a napkin-sketch of the current plan. We have been marking over the last month or so. I met with two city employees today, one who oversees habitat sustainability and an arborist. We now have permission to start clearing. But most certainly have restrictions.
 
I will be setting up some trail work days. I know that it’s hard to donate time. But having 5-6 people work for an hour or two will yield exponentially more results than one or two who work all day.
Our goal is to have fun trails to access inside the city. We’ve begged for it and now it’s time to put our money (time) where our mouths are.
 
I look forward to the progress we will make. Join our FB Group for the latest news on all Denton Trails
