ROSS – Ross county park board is reaching out to locals on a proposed project that would increase the amount of walking trails in the county by connecting Paint Creek Recreational Trail into Coppel Athletic Complex.
The trail will be approximately one-half mile in length, 10 ft. in width, constructed of asphalt, and limited to non-motorized and pedestrian travel. It will begin at the intersection of Western Avenue & Veteran’s Parkway and terminate at Coppel Athletic Complex. The proposed trail will initially proceed east over an existing field for approximately 1/10 of a mile, running parallel to Western Avenue. At the former B & O Railroad line, the trail will turn south and extend for approximately 2/5th of a mile, entering Coppel Athletic Complex at its northern border.
This project is not anticipated to impact any environmental resources. The Ross County Park District and City of Chillicothe request all suggestions, questions and concerns are directed to Joe Letsche at email@example.com or 740 773-8794
