Local Cyclists and Walkers Forming Ambassadors for the Trails

Local trail advocates have formed a new volunteer organization called Ambassadors for Clark County Trails (ACCT). Clark County has some of the most connected multi-use trails in the United States which are used by many visitors from all over the country. ACCT has formed to promote this asset.

ACCT has the cooperative support of National Trails Park and Recreation District and the Clark County Park District. Volunteers will help trail users with directions and general information about places of interest, dining facilities, and overnight accommodations. Trails supported under the program are the Little Miami Scenic Trail, the Buck Creek Trail, the Simon Kenton Trail, and the Prairie Grass Trail.  Volunteers will be identifiable by their distinctive t-shirts and will be equipped with informational literature to hand out. ACCTs will also assist the parks in reporting issues such as maintenance and vandalism. 

Participation in the program will necessitate an initial training program. Participants can choose from either of two introductory training programs that will be held at the office of National Trails Parks and Recreation District (1301 Mitchell Blvd) at 7 PM on July 16 and July 18.  For more information call ACCT coordinator Beth Goodrich at 937.215.6025.
