I would like to thank Mitch Talley for his recent and well-written article concerning the trail to the top of Rocky Face Ridge.
For years, I had supposed that this uniquely historic ridge, surrounded by private property, had no public access to its crest. I was genuinely surprised to learn from his article that there is, in fact, such an access, and that in the form of an approved non-motorized trail.
Greenways and trails make for a better community, providing its people with a better, more diversified quality of life. And from a business standpoint, they attract not only outdoor activists and fitness enthusiasts but, when an historic element is attached, history buffs as well. Many people Google “greenways” or “trails” when planning their next weekend escape, or vacation, or when traveling long; and our community would do well to invest in, promote and protect these gems — for all of us.
Thanks to Mr. Talley for his worthwhile contribution to our community.
