Crooked Crane Trail
The original Crooked Crane Trail was created in 1998 as an unimproved path surrounding the lake. It is primarily used by mountain bikers, outdoor enthusiasts and joggers. The trail lapsed into an overgrown and unusable state until significant resident interest motivated renewed maintenance of the existing trail. The renovated trail was be designed to be a 10’ wide concrete pathway to safely accommodate a variety of users such as bikers, rollerbladers, skateboarders, and other non-motorized uses. Two additional clusters of fitness equipment were also included in the project. Safety was enhanced with strategically placed lighting. To promote and encourage family use, each fitness equipment cluster included a children’s play feature and outdoor learning station so that family fitness, learning, and play can be combined into the outdoor trail experience.
