The North Platte Trails Network is seeking input on the best way to safely connect two recreation trails on the south side of North Platte.

We are asking area residents to attend a meeting to be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6 at the Valley Christian Church, 2001 West State Farm Rd.

The trails network committee has a priority to find a way to connect the South Buffalo Bill trail with the trail that runs along West State Farm Road on the West Central Research & Extension property.

Aerial photography will be available to stimulate discussion of the safest routes, the routes that have the most support, and ownership questions along routes.

At this meeting, the goal is to come away with the two best routes to safely connect these two trails, which then can be looked into further with engineers and planners, spokeswoman Danielle Remus said.

If you want to have a say about where these routes are located please bring a neighbor or a friend to this meeting and provide input.  Many minds are better than a few, Remus said.

If you live along West State Farm Rd you may want to attend this meeting.

This is the start of the process to determine the location for this key hiking and biking trail segment.  Going into spring it would be nice if we narrow down our trail location options, so this summer we can begin to move forward on connecting these two trails, Remus said.
