New Lake Jackson Dam Trail

Good news. The Lake Jackson Dam Public Canoe/Kayak put-in point has been approved by Prince William County. With that in mind, on September 17, we finished roughing in a new trail to the river.  See the photo gallery for before during and after pictures.

The trail starts on far right side of construction site behind piles of dumped dirt. Entrance from Parking Sign area still needs to be done.

I will try to meet and talk with the contractor at the site on Monday about moving his equipment forward about 10 feet, and perhaps helping us with building the Trail in that area and in improving the Parking area.

There are a lot of invasive plants in new trail area and we will need help in identifying and removing them so they do not kill the good trees there.

We removed about 4 bags of trash, 1 bag of recyclables, and an old tire from area. There is still a lot of broken glass down near the river and that part of trail needs improving.
