2021 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
A popular trail that serves as transportation and exercise for a rural town will be updated with resurfacing, a large crosswalk, signage, stencil art and benches.
Four new benches, manufactured by a local metalworks shop, were installed along the newly improved Tanglewood Trail. Matching funds raised by local businesses and individual donors ultimately surpassed the funds given by the AARP Community Challenge grant and will be put toward the long-term goal of expanding the trail to the top of Pine Mountain, where it will join the 1,800 mile Great Eastern Trail.
