« on: November 22, 2010, 09:55:34 AM »

The old trail at the south part of the property near the gulf course, that has a sign staked in the middle of it, and runs south east is on privet property. We found that out the hard way last year when we were building new trails back their. For years everyone thought the property line was at the creek. The property line runs from that sign in the trail north east at an angle. So if you are on the trail that runs north east from that sign and eventually runs along the creek you are fine. The property owners across the creek are not very nice with their words and would like to never see anyone back there. But if we stay on the parks property we are fine.

We are going to reroute it this spring it really isn't that much of a difference but enough that they don't want us there.  I have an e-mail into the manager from early last week and am just waiting to hear back as to when we can start working again.  Everything has been on hold all year with the construction.  He did tell me in October he was ready for us to build on the back property so just waiting to get approval.  But we will reroute that small part first and that way they don't have the ability to chase us off.

I did the reroute earlier this year, so if anyone runs into the neighbors yelling they have no complaint as we have no section of trail that is on the part they actuall own.
