Everyone stopped at the first fishing pad along the Gokotta as we applauded John and Cecelia Latham, sitting on the bench they donated to the park.

Walks at the park will continue over the next several weeks, walking the Gokotta Trail to it’s end and back – all in the shade in the morning. As walkers get more used to walking this distance, Eagles Edge Trail will be added for a 2-mile hike. Susan Collins has set Monday dates on which she will be at the Lupton picnic shelter to lead walks – July 25, August 1, 15, 22, 29, Sept 12, 19, and 26. 7:50am-8:50am!
See you there!!!
