Earlier this week we notice our local trail head was surrounded by a fence and that excavating equipments had moved in. I assumed they were grading in a proper parking lot in but isn’t the case.Turns out they are upgrading about a kilometre of the trail, adding crushed gravel, filling in the low lying spots and joining it up with the existing trail. In short, making it into an urban trail.
I’m not so keen on that, I kind of like getting my feet wet, running on dirt and how the morning sun glints off the spider webs that seem to have grown during the night. That won’t be the case once the gravel path is in place. It’s kind of sad how we have to take the wild out of the wild.
