New Bike/Walking Trail at Geneva State Park

Well I can tell you I am SO excited with the renovation of the Orange Trail at Geneva State Park. Not only is it larger, it will be paved by the end of June, 2009.
As you can see above, the left is the new trail which is much wider than the old trail to the right. This is the entrance from Rt 534, just down the street from us. As you follow the trail to the marina parking lot, the trail veers left and is parallel to the driveway.The white pole to the left (above) is the Blue Trail and straight ahead is the Orange Trail that runs parallel to the road and just north of Crabapple Picnic Area.The trail then leads to the road at the boat launch entrance and crosses to the west bank of the marina entrance.
From here, it continues west, over the marsh and alongside Breakwater Beach.
The Trail ends parallel with Rt. 531 across from the campground and at the cabins.
It is so wonderful to see the progress of the State Park facilities. The funding for this trail project came from a Clean Ohio Trail Grant, a community development block grant and monies from the Ashtabula County Convention Facilities Authority (our Bed Tax dollars at work).

Here is a short clip from my first jaunt...
