It was very hot on the 12th of June, but that did not sway PWTSC from performing much needed trail building and maintenance at Silver Lake Park near Haymarket. A total of 26 volunteers gathered to lay down wood chips on trails cleared last fall, and worked to improve much of what had been damaged during the winter storms.
Another accomplishment made was the installation of trail head signage to help guide trail users around the park. Park maps are available on the Park Authority website, but over the winter, not all were easy to find without the signs.
Trails to date accommodate those who wish to hike or have a pleasant horse ride, as well as being ideal for the young mountain bike enthusiast. The trails wind through woodlands, cross open fields, and provide excellent views of the lake below.
PWTSC will again be gathering to work at Silver Lake on Saturday, August 14th to continue improvements with trail footing on newly existing trails, as well as adding more distance to trails in progress. Please come join us to help improve Prince William County trails systems.
