New trail at Intersection 36 has another section open. Thanks to YES Plan and Youth Works for breaking open 1338 feet of trail and doing over 900 feet of finish work. We only have another 1600 feet to go to Intersection 38. This trail does have a permanent name yet. A few trail names in the hat are: Milk Run, Milky Swirl, Milky Way, au Lait, Holy Roller all in reference to the milk crates found on the side of the trail while laying it out. If you have trail name suggestion please let us know at pinehillpartnership@gmail.com. We will hold a contest and winner will get a Pine Hill Partnership t-shirt.

Some trail names being kicked around:

Milk Run, Milky Swirl, Holy Roller, Rocky Ridge, CoulĂ©e de lait (French for Milk Run) or lait au chocolat (Chocolate Milk). The reason for the ‘milk’ in the name are the multiple milk crates found while laying the trail out.
