Great Rivers Greenway will be starting a new trail system at Cliff Cave.

Clearing of trees will begin very shortly.

Construction of the trail will follow.

I am not sure how things will be handled as the project progresses.

Please respect the wishes of the County and contractors during this process.

When completed this will make for a very positive addition to this awesome park.

The paved trail will climb up from the lower lot and provide a bridge to cross over to the Bluff Trail as well as a path up to Spring Valley.

At this point the proposed connector from Telegraph is on hold.

Today I walked the trail alignment that will climb up for the lower lot to the Spring Valley .

It looks to be a really nice design.

There will be 3 switch backs as the trail gains elevation to the top.

Prior to the first switch back there will be a bridge to cross the road to the Bluff Trail which then will climb all the way up to the overlook.

The new parking lot up top on the bluff side will provide a great starting point to access both sides of the road.

From the lower parking lot, the climb to the top of both trails will be a nice work out with the reward of an enjoyable ride back down.

I can see this being a great compliment to the current natural trails.

The County Parks and GRG have been great to work with.

The design should keep the new paved trail system as separated as possible from the natural trails.

Thanks for the update, Kevin. I look forward to watching the paved trail build progress!
