Local groups to
maintain Rail-Trail



Adam Adams (from left) Caroline Harthorn and Dr. Steven Harthorn with Williams Baptist College work to clean up a portion of the Rail-Trail walking path. Williams and other groups and businesses have adopted sections of the trail to maintain as part of local revitalization and beautification efforts.

Volunteers have begun working to keep the Lawrence County Rail-Trail maintained. The Community Revitalization and Beautification Committee with the Chamber of Commerce is spearheading the effort, in conjunction with the county’s Rail-Trail Committee.

Volunteers from Williams Baptist College spent July 19 clearing away brush and weeds along the trail. WBC has adopted the section of trail between Miller Road and Hwy. 67. Other groups and businesses are adopting portions of the trail as well.

Lawrence County Judge Dale Freeman has also dispatched county workers to mow and sweep along the trail.

The Lawrence County Rail-Trail extends just over six miles, running from the south trailhead in Hoxie to Miller Road, near the Walnut Ridge Airport.

The majority of the trail is now paved. A 1,200-foot section just west of Hwy. 67 is the only unpaved portion, and the Rail-Trail Committee plans to pave that stretch as soon as grant funds become available.
