STATE PARK TO HOST GRAND OPENING OF NEW TRAIL
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park
WHITE SPRINGS – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park invites visitors to celebrate the Grand Opening of a new 8-mile single track mountain biking and hiking trail on Saturday October 8, 2011.
A ribbon cutting will highlight the grand opening at 10am and the trail will be open for the first time at this event. Foster’s Hammock Loop Trail was designed and constructed by members of the Suwanee Bicycle Association, a local not for profit bicycle organization, who will be on site to provide ride guides and special trips during the grand opening.
Catfish Hole, the Suwanee River Overlook, “Beavor Crossing” and other unique areas along this scenic trail will provide visitors with an exclusive adventure throughout the Upper Suwanee River Valley’s diverse topography. Attached is a map showing the new Foster’s Hammock Loop Trail including the existing multi use trails within the park.
