HERKIMER COUNTY HEALTHNET BEGINS TRAIL MAP & GUIDE PROJECT
June 1, 2011
HERKIMER – Through the Creating Healthy Places grant from the NY State Department of Health, Herkimer County HealthNet is currently working on the 2nd edition of the Herkimer County Trails guide for the community to use to walk, hike, bike, and exercise on trails located in Herkimer County. Utilizing G.P.S., Herkimer County HealthNet plans to work with local designers to update its trail map & guide to encourage physical activity in Herkimer County.
Herkimer County HealthNet is seeking assistance from the community in this development effort. Thomas Curnow, Executive Director of Herkimer County HealthNet said, “We’re hoping to utilize volunteers to help gather G.P.S. data on any trails not already included in our current trail guide.”
While America celebrates National Trails Day this Saturday, June 4th, Herkimer County HealthNet also encourages the community to take advantage of our local trail system.
The first editions of the Herkimer County Trails Guide are available at the following locations:
