Wagner Glade Trail Work Redux
Work continues on the new Wagner Glade Trail. See a write up on the trail work in this Mailtribune article. All the downed logs have been removed and another 1/3 mile of tread has been laid down in the last two weeks. However, roughly 2/3 miles of tread still needs completion on the highest portion of the trail.
