Arches Rail Trail
I am on the board of directors of the Montgomery County Natural Area Guardians. We are a committee of the Montgomery County Soil and Water Conservation District. For a number of years, we have been pursuing opening a trail between Montgomery County Fairgrounds and Audubon Society's Bremer Sanctuary near Hillsboro. The trail was recently opened to the public as a hiking trail. Many people deserve recognition for making this happen but no one took the bull by the horns like Ray Luebert shown below. Our project today was to install mile markers to give hikers some idea of where they are. The top photo shows hikers enjoying the fall day. It is gratifying to see people using the trail.
