— “It is really creating local stewardship for the trail system,” Buehler, who has adopted a trail with her family, said. “It is getting people involved and engaged on the local level.”

Buehler also said that work on the Elizabethtown footbridge and Footbridge Park is still progressing after suffering setbacks in late August.

“The work was pretty much done, but it took a hit with (Tropical Storm Irene),” Buehler said. “We are working on some reconstruction on the waterway and the park, and we have a trail that is going in on town property near the footbridge.”

Buehler said that the new trail will be interactive and accessible.

“We want to integrate music and do things that allow people to identify the plants and animals that they will find,” Buehler said. “We are also hoping to make the trail accessible so those with a stroller or wheelchair could take advantage of it.”
