Have you heard of or seen us at some of the local events last year? We are a grass roots group of trail
users in the Delta Junction Area dedicated to improving and protecting the variety of trails around Delta and creating new ones. We have been soliciting public input and working on creating a Community Trail Plan. The Delta Junction Community Trail Plan is important for all trail users in our community to ensure preservation and access to our local trails. The Vision of this project is to create a community-wide trail system that will provide a place for year-round outdoor
recreational activities and trail opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, income, and trail interests in the Delta area.
A sustainable trail up Donnelly Dome
“Delta River Walk Trail” with fabulous views of the mountains along the Delta River
A Nature Trail right next to Delta High School!
And more……Whatever our community wants.
In addition to working on trails, we have been hosting community events to encourage people to get out and be active. We will also be writing a series of articles here in the Delta Wind entitled “Trail Talk” which will feature a variety of topics relating to trails, outdoor activities, equipment and updates on our projects.
If you are a trapper, runner, musher, biker, skier, ATV’er, snowmachiner/snowmobiler, walker, snowshoer, equestrian rider, skijorer, dirt biker, hiker, mud trucker, recreationalist of any kind that utilizes some part or form of a trail, we need your input and assistance in creating the Delta Junction Community Trail Plan. This is Your Trail Plan. Are you interested in sharing your ideas, writing articles, helping with membership, outreach, grant writing, trail work, events? Come to our next monthly Work Group meeting, February 27th 5:30-7:00pm at the CoOp Extension conference room Jarvis Building.
Help us with this exciting project for all trail users in the Delta area!
