In addition to offering residents a safe, convenient place to exercise and experience the beautiful natural surroundings of the area, the Pike Road Natural Trail is the network that will connect the town’s neighborhoods and future recreational sites. Funded by a Transportation Enhancement Grant from the Federal Highway Administration, the first phase of the trail system is designed to accommodate walkers, runners and off-road bicyclists.
The trail system will be constructed in phases and will include strategically located “trailheads” with parking areas. Phase I of the Pike Road Natural Trail runs alongside Meriwether Road between U.S. Highway 231 and Pike Road, with a trailhead at each end.
Trailhead 1 of the Pike Road Natural Trail is located on the southern side of Meriwether Road, between Barnes Road and U.S. Highway 231. It includes parking, a covered picnic pavilion with charcoal grill, tables and lighting, and a restroom facility. The trailhead faclity is ADA accessible.
Trailhead 2 is located near the Old Town Hall site at the corner of Meriwether and Pike Roads. An accessible restroom facility and pavilion are planned for the location.
