The public is invited to attend the opening ceremony, beginning at 1:00 pm.  Following the ceremony, there will be a guided walk along the trail.  Vehicle parking is limited. Additional parking on Doral Lane.  Rain date for the event is Sunday, June 2 at 1:00 pm.  Any schedule changes will be posted on this website.

A temporary map of the trail is available here.
