Both are part of the seven-mile Pullman Trail System linking major areas of the city. The trail system began after the introduction of the Bill Chipman Palouse Trail connecting Pullman to Moscow in 1997. More additions to the trail are planned by the Pullman Civic Trust.
The newest area includes new bike racks, benches and plantings. Mayor Glenn Johnson will dedicate the area and an Arbor Day tree will be planted. After the ceremony, kids can view an interactive story along the trail followed by nature activities at Neill Public Library. Free refreshments will be served and the first 150 people will receive a free tree seedling. Parking is available at Spot Shop parking lot and across the street from the Pullman Chamber of Commerce.
