Trail coordinator predicts park will be major attractor

A trail coordinator says as more and more mileage is added to the Palmetto Trail in Oconee County, Walhalla’s Stumphouse Mountain Bike Park will become “a nationally significant facility.” Rob Achenberg made the prediction during last night’s meeting of the Partners for Progress. He said a lengthier section of the trail will be ready for use this fall and soon bids will be requested to make a connection between Stumphouse and the Oconee State Park.  A Partners member last week conversed with an experienced mountain bike rider, and he gave a thumbs up to the hiking and biking trails at the park.
