Public Invited to Discuss Hiking Trail Development at Griffy Lake


April 6, 2018

Bloomington, Ind.-The Environmental Resources Advisory Council, or ERAC, is devoting their April meeting to discussing the possibility of creating a hiking trail around Griffy Lake.

The public is invited to the Henderson Shelter at Bryan Park on April 11 at 4:30 p.m. to give input about the trail. Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department staff will review maps of the Griffy Lake area, discuss possible route options, and share how the project fits into the City's Bicentennial "Trees and Trails" initiative.

The ERAC acts in an advisory capacity to the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department's Board of Park Commissioners in policy matters pertaining to the operation of City natural areas.

"This is an exciting project, and we are eager to hear what local trail users have to say about building this kind of trail," said Elizabeth Tompkins, natural resources coordinator for the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department. "We and the volunteer members of ERAC will spend the next few weeks reviewing possibilities, and exploring how to meet the challenges posed by a project of this scope."

To provide input about the proposed Griffy Lake loop trail, or for more information about the process, contact Tompkins at 812.349.3759 or
