"All Trails Lead to Vergas"  Proposal
 
A Safety Lane from the current Vergas Long Lake Park Trail to the Long Lake Boat Access.

           

Pictures indicate the current look of the trail to the proposed look of the trail.       
 
The first stage of the Long Lake Trail was completed in 2008.  Click here to read information regarding the first stage of the trail.      
The second stage of the Long Lake Trail was completed in 2014.  This 1/2 mile trail along the lake upgraded an old Highway that was know by current residents as Tin Can Alley.
We are currently working on the third stage of the trail, connecting the Long Lake Beach to the Long Lake Boat Access.
