The ribbon cutting turnout of elected officials and residents revealed great cooperation and synergy between Dallas County and the City of Dallas for a much needed extension to the County Trail system. Prayers, citizen participation and humor marked the day. Commissioners Elba Garcia and John Wiley Price along with Judge Clay Jenkins were in rare form today as they stressed the importance of the trail and working together to keep growth and development a priority in the southern sector.

Stay tuned for more TRAIL news and updates as Dallas County continues to expand the Trail System so that one day soon bikers and pedestrians will be able to commute from one end of the County to the other without the use of a car!
