Just that little bit too much rain, the trail’s too muddy to work on.

Sept 21, 2019 – TTPA, the City of Lucas, and the Corps are sponsoring a NPLD cleanup event to remove trash debris left by the high water when the lake flooded these past several years. We’ll be concentrating on the low spots just north of the Raptor Center, by the Lucas Rd underpass, south of Lakeview Downs, the Highland Park boatramp, and south from the HP trailhead. Lunch will be served afterwards for the volunteers at the Raptor Center’s park, with the raptors on display.

Visit www.lucastexas.us/public-lands-trail-cleanup for more details and to register as a cleanup volunteer.

TTPA also needs volunteers to help man the registration tables the morning of the event at the two trailheads. Contact Duke Monson if you can help.

We’ll be meeting at Highland Park and tackling branches and vines that are encroaching on the trailbed.
