The trail in question is where the old railroad used to run, just past the boat launch. The tracks were turned into a trail when the railroad shut down, however it had become overgrown after years of little attention.
“[The trail] is about .32 miles from the beginning to the end where you can look out at the marshes. It's a great view,” Glover said.
In order to become an Eagle Scout, Glover needed to complete a service project that benefited the community. “I really enjoy the outdoors. I've been back there a few times and loved the view, so I thought other people would also,” he explained.
Glover was able to get donated rock to complete the project. At the beginning of the project, Randy Dennis donated one load and Hawks Superior Rock donated two.
“With two days left we ran out of rock, which is when Northwest Rock donated one more load. Thanks to East County Rentals, I was also allowed to use a wood chipper for almost a week free of charge,” Glover said.
The volunteers who helped Glover included: Heath Layman, Baylee Layman, Halle Layman, Emilee Layman, Joseph Orkney, Matthew Lewis, Joseph Lewis, John Latimer, Stephan Latimer, Sam Green, Shane Green, Matthew Wilson, Lucas Metcalf, Chris Metcalf, Caleb Doyle, Tyler Pehl and Ty Wilson.
