By the Building, Grounds and Safety Advisory Committee
In 2022 the LHCC Board of Directors approved proceeding with all phases of the planned gravel trail system along the former golf course. LHCC has also requested a quote to repair washout and erosion areas for our existing walkways this spring.
Phase 2 will be the focus in early 2023, extending from behind the Bus Stop to Masters Drive by the ponds, and onward to Lakeview Drive. The trail is approximately 1-mile in length and will include several drainage culverts.
Most importantly, this phase offers a safer way for students who walk to and from the Bus Stop. The extension also provides residents with an additional route for exercising or enjoying a stroll through the natural habitat along the former golf course. Future phases (planned for completion in 2023) will connect this extension to the loop at Country Club Park and beyond. Phases 0 and 1 are existing trails that extend from the mail station across from the Clubhouse on Lakeview Drive to Country Club Park, and a loop from the first tee of the Disc Golf Course at the park to the large pond on West Masters Drive and back to the park.
Phase 1 Gravel Trail Loop Extension Completed in 2021
