Completion of one of the trails Major Projects and the Volunteerism of one of our areas supporting institutions:

Construction Completed: The Friends of the Outlet in cooperation with City Hill Construction have improved  the section of the Outlet Trail under the NYS Route 14 bridge as part of the Friends TEA-21 Grant project.  The construction crews began on the 17th and fill has been brought in to raise the grade of the trail approximately 2 feet; then two culverts installed to handle drainage from the upland slope to the adjoining lower wetlands.  The new section of trail is surfaced with stone dust.   Special Thanks to Dan Spence for all his efforts in bringing this needed repair to the trail and to City Hill Construction for their donations and continued efforts in maintaining the trail.
For the third consecutive year, incoming freshman at Hobart and William Smith College  partnered with the Friends of the Outlet, Inc. board members for a half day of community service on the Keuka Outlet Trail and Park.  Six teams of students and leaders tackled trail maintenance activities from clearing brush, cutting shrubbery, weeding garden areas, to refreshing information boards and restocking registration boxes.   Students had an opportunity to learn a brief history of the trail as a source of local commerce, experience the natural wonders of the trail first hand and learn how a non-profit organization pitches in to make the trail experience a wonderful one for the community and visitors. A lunch for Volunteers and Group Leaders followed the students noon departure at the DRESDEN HOTEL.
