Bench by the Trail

A new bench has been installed by the Swamp Rabbit Trail at the bottom of the hill to Falls Park. It contains elements of the abandoned railway converted to a greenway trail: bicycles that occupy it today and railroad spikes that would have held the old railway together.

Cooking the Trail

This crew is making a repair to a section of the Swamp Rabbit Trail where there was a tree root or large crack. The process is to heat a section of trail to 1800 degrees, after which the section can be reshaped as smooth as glass. Repairs can be made in cold weather and last year’s repairs are proving to be durable.
