My two grandchildren (ages 8 and 11) and I rode our bikes on the Eureka Waterfront Trail on a recent gorgeous sunny Saturday afternoon ("Celebrate the Waterfront Trail," Feb. 2).
We began at the muddy, pot-holed parking area by the board walk and rode to the "end" of the trail at Pound Road just north of Elk River, and then rode back to where we had begun. What a treasure to be able to ride along the bay, where we saw many others enjoying the beautiful area that is a centerpiece to our community.
We met another family that we had seen on the trail at everyone's favorite ice cream place on the boardwalk. They told us about the part of the trail, to our north, which we had missed. Next time we will ride the full length and back, starting at Tydd Street. They also mentioned (Eureka Community Services Director) Miles Slattery and the key role he played in getting this amazing trail in place. Thank you, Miles! We truly appreciate all of your hard work!!
