Newcastle Trails to host July 26 work party

July 24, 2014

NEW — 6 a.m. July 24, 2014

The Newcastle Trails organization will host a work party July 26 to continue construction on the city’s CrossTown Trail.

The trail will connect Coal Creek Parkway across from Lake Boren to Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park. The group is essentially building the trail from scratch, so work will include clearing, culling the soil of organics and contouring the trail bed.

The work party starts sharply at 9 a.m. and goes until noon, though individuals can continue to work past that time, if they wish. The group meets along Southeast 81st Street, near an under-construction subdivision.
