Thanks to funds from the Charles J. Strosacker Foundation, Friends of the Rail-Trail, and The Great Lakes Bay Invitational, an accessible pavilion is available at Trailside Center.
Use of the new, accessible, pavilion will be available at no charge. Please feel welcome to come and picnic with your family, or meet up before a walk or ride on the Rail Trail. We will not be requiring reservations at this time, but simply ask courtesy toward fellow users.
