The town of Chrisney, Chrisney Elementary, St. Martin Catholic Church, area YMCA and other local organizations celebrated the official opening of a new walking trail in the community Oct. 10. The new path links trail networks at the town park and the school into one, allowing residents to traverse much of the community’s scenic surroundings on foot. The first to make use of the new trail were the students of Chrisney Elementary, who made a brief detour on their annual “walk-to-school day” stroll by rerouting the entire student body around the church, through the woods up to Chrisney Lake before heading back to school. Mike Steffe of the YMCA and Neal Dougan of the Chrisney Town Council inaugurated the event with a ceremonial ribbon cutting before the procession began. The combined trail was made possible through joint effort of the town, YMCA and other local organizations to apply for grant funding. The trail network is open to all comers and a round trip encompasses some 3.4 miles. The recommended path begins at Chrisney Elementary’s trail entrance, looping through the woods toward the library and past the school entrance onto Church Street to the Chrisney Park Trailhead. From there, the path goes on a loop of Chrisney Lake which takes pedestrians and cyclists back to the starting point.
