The City of Tioga is excited to announce that construction will soon begin on a natural trail around the Tioga Dam, providing a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages to engage in healthy and enjoyable recreational activities. With a focus on safe, accessible, and low- or no-cost activities like cycling, walking, hiking, jogging, and skating, this project will help residents incorporate exercise into their daily routines.
The trail will open up more public land, previously inaccessible to users, and convert some of the natural areas to create spaces for recreation, sports, and fishing habitats. The addition of the walking path, benches, picnic tables, and trees will provide a beautiful and tranquil environment to promote health and wellness.
This project also supports the conservation and revitalization of the Tioga Dam area, enhancing the recreational activities offered by our community for tourists and locals alike. As we strive to promote diversity and family-friendly activities, the walking path will change the perception of our community as a transit location to one that values the well-being of all ages.
We anticipate that the construction of the walking path will be completed by this fall, allowing outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy the natural history and scenic beauty of this area while creating beautiful memories. We are excited to invite everyone to explore this natural recreation area and take advantage of the many health benefits it has to offer.
