Open House to Discuss Lake Glendale Trail System

Open House to Discuss Lake Glendale Trail System Opportunity

HARRISBURG, IL April 17, 2019 – Centrally located the Lake Glendale area has a history of being popular with trail enthusiasts. Shawnee National Forest (NF) is seeking input on a proposal to add mountain bike use to a trail system at Lake Glendale Recreation Area. The 2006 Shawnee NF Land and Resource Management Plan allows for the possibility of designating such trails.

A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 2 to explore the opportunity for trail designation in that area and gather ideas on what a quality trail system would include. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the Lake Glendale Recreation Area, Goose Bay Picnic Shelter. Open House participants will have the opportunity to hear directly from Forest staff, ask questions and provide their ideas.
