A moonlight trail ride is scheduled July 28th starting at 6:00p.m. with the Trinity Trail Preservation Association. (TTPA) was established in 1996 as a non-profit all-volunteer trail preservation organization to care for and maintain the 25.5 mile long trail on Corps of Engineers land on Lake Lavon and encourage hikers, joggers, nature lovers, photographers, and trail riders to use the scenic trail.
The association says, ” In addition to maintaining the 25.5 mile long trail, the TTPA holds trail rides, cookouts, work days, educational events and fund-raising activities. The organization also works with area environmental groups, schools, scout troops and individuals to educate the public about parks, trails and recreational facilities in the north Texas area. ”
The added benefits of joining the group according to its members is, ” Membership in the TTPA gets you involved with a group of wonderful people. Our primary focus is trail riding, and once you become a member you will receive a monthly news letter that will inform you of all the news and upcoming events. There are approximately 200 members at this time, and there is a wealth of knowledge and friendship among us. Most of us ride other trails as well, so typically you will see other TTPA members at any time on trails somewhere in Texas or Oklahoma. TTPA sponsors trail rides, barbecues, seminars, and fundraisers. No matter which events you attend, you’re sure to have fun!
