    (HURRICANE, Utah) - The Hurricane City Trail Committee has been busy during the last year updating the 1998 Master Trail Plan. Enthusiastic committee members have been GPS’ing miles of possible trails by foot, bicycle, and automobile to develop a new twenty-year Trail Master Plan.

    Transportation is at the heart of every society and is deeply intertwined with our lifestyles. This new plan is dedicated to creating a community where walking, hiking and bicycling are safe, normal, healthy and fun daily activities. Connecting neighborhoods, parks, shopping areas, and neighboring cities are key elements of this new plan.

    The new Trail Master Plan envisions natural surface paths for hiking and mountain biking; paved surface, multi-use paths for walking, running, and recreational cycling; and designated bicycle routes on paved streets for commuting and long distance travel.

    The Trail Committee will hold a public open house on Wednesday October 2, 2013 from 4-8 pm at the Hurricane City Council Chambers (147 North 870 West, Hurricane, Utah 84737). You are invited to meet Trail Committee members, look at the new Trail Master Plan and make comments. Your input as a citizen is greatly valued in helping us prioritize trail building projects for the next one, five, ten, and twenty years.

    I want to see trails that are accessible to all ages and I want to see trails where dogs are permitted to hike with their owners. Cleaning up after the dog should be posted as the owner responsibility and bags may be provided at trail heads if financially feasible.

    Hurricane has a very bad habit of excluding canines from every activity that they could participate in with a human. The trails should be open to humans and canines alike.

    The major problem we see with dogs on the trails, are the owners think they can control their dogs when they are not on a lease. The dogs run wild, scare other people and sometimes attack smaller dogs, which should also be on a lease. One thing leads to another and someone gets hurt or their animal gets hurt. It is just not as simple as my dog should be able to hike with me, how do we control the dogs and their owners so that everyone is happy and safe on the trails?
