Our 12x 24 Rustic cabin is overlooking Lake Ovid. This DNR PMP project is on site and the interior is to be completed for rental by spring. A water line will be installed and landscaping finished w/weather permitting. It will be available for all rental users by a link to the reservation system when that cabin is ready. Our members have had several workbees to created an equestrian connecting trail to the multi-use trail and have added picket poles for this cabin and an the existing modern cabin. This will be a unique equestrian experience.
SHTRA members have also been working on the Island Trail, a picnic area with hitching rails and are developing plans for the bridge project. The replacement boards are being worked on and have not been installed. That will happen in the spring with better weather. So, if you are riding and wish to check out the island trail, tie your horse up and take a hike. Do not take your horse across the rotten boards. The following folks have recently donated 150 hours towards these projects: Don and Pat Brown, Myron Karsten, Barb Drake, Chris Salters, Dan and Pam Crampton, Val Lau, Mike Woods, Bill Thelen, Alice Bills, Donna Apostal, Dave Kline, Mary Darling and me. We have appreciated the help of Park Manager, Tim Machowicz with these projects. Please check our Facebook page to see pictures of these 4 workbee projects. Barb Drake is our webmaster for shtra.org and has photos up-to-date. Thanks to all.
Membership renewal letters will be sent out soon. Join us for our fun events and lovely trails.
