Here is a docu-video promoting our recently acquired derelict railroad Depot in Johnson City that will be (once preserved and developed) a trail head for a biking and hiking greenway through the city and countryside. This is linking a Rails-to-Trails project with a civic muti-use trail that will allow safe biking and walking for all ages and ability levels. It will link historic sites, parks, schools, beautiful natural resources, residential neighborhoods, shopping areas, and provide an alternative venue for transportation to work and play. As this project develops we will be documenting it with video resources.
