The roughly 5.5 mi. paved loop around Lake Fayetteville is complete! I biked it recently and it was great. On the south side, the new section of paved trail feels more separated from the lake and woods than the dirt path and it has covered/impacted the dirt trail in places. I assume the hiking/mountain biking trail will be rerouted to fix the spots where it is buried under 10 feet of fill and mulch, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have any info on this?
Another update, this one a little sad: the title of State Champion Black Oak has been ceded to another massive tree after the giant at Lake Fayetteville succumbed to natural causes (or maybe death by chainsaw).
