Making Progress at Mile Zero
The Mile Zero trailhead of the Flint Hills Trail continues to take shape as work nears completion on the Walker Station information kiosk and the restroom/recycling facilities. A quarter mile from the trailhead, another great amenity is almost ready for its grand opening: the pedestrian bridge! This bridge crosses a ditch near the mouth of the trail and will keep traffic moving cleanly and safely above the mud and muck of the drainage area. The bridge should be ready for traffic in the next two weeks, barring any weather disruptions.

Trail enthusiasts aren't waiting for the summer sun to get out and enjoy our newest recreation opportunity, and neither should you! Talk a walk on the trail after dinner today and see just how beautiful this space has become.
