News and Notes


On Monday, April 21, the trail will be closed from the east end of City Park to State Line Road due to concrete trail repairs that require the complete closing of the trail. There is no detour available. The repairs are being made to the wide sidewalk that crosses the creek on State Line Road. We anticipate the trail will reopen on Friday, April 25th.



A hill slide has forced the closure of the Tomahawk Trail link beginning at 123rd & Mission Road and ending at Tomahawk Park.  Trail users must use the sidewalk along Mission Road to 119th Street.  The Tomahawk Trail can be accessed by heading west on 119th Street from Mission Road.
