Shelton Parks and Recreation and CHOICE High School CTE program are proud to announce the grand opening of the Shelton Creek Trail. After nearly eight months of trail construction the .7 mile path through city open space will be officially open to the public. The community is invited to a ribbon cutting on Thursday, June 4 at 10:00 am at the southern trail head at 7th and Laurel Streets, behind William G. Reed library.
This will be an important recreational amenity and pedestrian transportation opportunity from the downtown core to the Mt. View area. The trail borders Shelton Creek through much of the lower portion, then traverses up the hill to end at the paved pedestrian path just south Professional Way and southeast of Mason General Hospital.
Other groups and individuals instrumental in the completion of the trail include Manke Lumber Co., Kristmas Town Kiwanis, Mason County Democrats, DR. Bill Busacca, Don and Carolyn Maddux, and Jef Conklin. The property was donated by Mason County Development, LLC.
