Joe’s Run Recreational Trail is open but use caution! The Muskingum Valley Park District has scheduled contract work to repair and stabilize the trails on Joe’s Run Recreational Trail starting on Wednesday, December 14, 2022. This work will affect the entire trail from Blue Avenue to Adams Lane to Collegial Woods Trails until further notice.

The Board of Muskingum Valley Park District Commissioners adopted a five-year master plan during their September 2022 regular monthly meeting. The plan, based on statistically valid data from the district’s 2019 community survey, identifies site specific actions for each of the district’s current landholdings as well as community-wide initiatives to secure gathering places for families and social groups, as well as for individuals of all ages and economic status. A primary focus of the plan is to expand the district’s recreational trail system with the goal of connecting communities throughout Muskingum County.
