New hiking, biking trail could come to Daviess Co.

Posted: Updated:

The Daviess County Fiscal Court will be holding a new public meeting Monday to discuss plans for a new hiking and bike trail.

The fiscal court will discuss the plans at a public hearing at 7:00 p.m. Monday at the Daviess County Courthouse in the second flood meeting room.

Judge Executive Al Mattingly says the 60-mile long trail will go from Ben Hawes Park to Rough River Dam State Resort Park in Grayson County.

People will be able to walk, ride a bike, and even ride a horse on selection sections of the trail.

The court is asking anyone who wants to learn more or has questions to attend the meeting.

The court has been working with the National Parks Service on the trail and representatives will be at the meeting.

Mattingly tells us the benefit of the trail is tourism, bringing dollars into the community, and giving the citizens a way to exercise.

The project is still in the early planning stages. The cost and start date are unknown.

The county has been working on plans for the trail for two years.
