Wow! What fun this is going to be, and what a whole new way to experience Beaufort. I rode a bike on the first completed section of the new Spanish Moss bike/run/walk Trail from Depot Road to Allison Road, and it’s awesome. Kudos to the visionaries behind this trail, who have carried the dream of this forward past opposition and lack of funds to the completion of the first beautiful segment. Speaking of funds, it’s due to the very generous Kennedy family of Clarendon Plantation that provided the money for this first crucial segment from the James M. Cox Foundation, which donated $567,000. A second grant from the foundation of $600,000 will be awarded if a local match is found. Come on people let’s do this! Go to the website Spanishmosstrail.com for information on how to get involved, fundraisers and the upcoming dedication of the first completed segment on Tuesday, Nov. 20. See you there.
