The Newly completed work on LBL's hiking and biking trails will make camping along the 60 mile North/South National Recreation Trail easier and more enjoyable than ever. Coupled with their new trail guide and in depth maps, Land Between the Lakes has become the Mid South's outdoor playground. Improvements include cleaning 13 freshwater springs on the North/South Trail to make drinking water available to hikers and backpackers; repairing or replacing footbridges on this trail; clearing downed limbs and other debris from trials; improving trail signs; and adding trailheads linking The Homeplace - 1850 and The Nature Station to the North/South Trail. "This has been a major improvement effort," said Keith Pardue, manager of LBL Engineering and Maintenance, who spearheaded the project. The North/South Trail from Golden Pond Visitors Center to the North Welcome Station has been designated a shared use trail for hikers and mountain bikers. This includes the scenic Canal Loop Trail, Which was opened to mountain bikers last year.
