Trail Extension in the Works!

Trail Work 2 Jan 2015

Exciting news for nature lovers! The City of Bainbridge recently received a Recreational Trails Program Grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to be used exclusively for the construction of recreational trails. The grant will allow the City to add approximately 1.5 miles to the existing Nature Trail located at Earle May Boat Basin. Construction began this week near the Chamber of Commerce building. The trail extension will tie into the existing paved trail near the campground area and will extend along the road beside the animal park. A bridge will be constructed in the near future to allow pedestrians to cross the canal. The crushed rock trail will continue past the Chamber building, down Hatcher Road along the river, and end at Cheney Griffin Park where the Trailhead will be located. The project is projected to be completed by Spring, just in time for families to be able to get out and enjoy nature and the beauty found along the Flint River!
