Smethport Trail Group Getting It Done

A community of like-minded citizens got together five years ago and formed the Potato Creek Trail Association. The vision included “creating and maintaining a network of multipurpose trails for the purpose of exploration, interpretation, and recreation within our topographically rich historic and natural environment.

In my youth, it seemed most of our wide open spaces were in the public domain. We walked, hunted, fished, and explored in many places that are now posted, protected, or otherwise not available. The people of Smethport still like to enjoy the outdoors and somewhere along the line a few individuals got to organizing.

Never underestimate the power of a few individuals to dream, plan, and execute an idea. Fast forward five years and the community organization continues to have vision for the future as well as pride in the accomplishments of the past five years. Read more...

Just a quick question: Does anyone that reads Solomon's Blog actually use the Potato Creek Trails? I mean for hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or horse back riding? I don't typically see anyone going onto or off of these trails. I mean if you do, please feel free to comment. I just don't think they have gotten used very much in the several years it has been organized..

*I've hiked on it once, toward Farmers Valley and wasn't impressed with the signage.*
