Friends and staff efforts this year have included two other benches on the trail as well as seven truck loads of limestone to strengthen the surface and cover emerging roots and cypress knees. For anyone with limited mobility, these were MAJOR improvements. But the River Trail is not finished.
Ahead are preliminary plans for a kiosk at the end of the earthen trail that will provide shelter and tell, with a pictograph, the former days when that space was a logging deck for logs flowed down the Suwannee River. More signs to identify plants and trees and perhaps a trail to an old giant cypress that escaped the loggers saw are also under consideration.
Friends Board and Refuge staff hope you enjoy the additions.
