The City and Borough of Sitka in cooperation with Sitka Trail Works has been working on improvements to and reconstruction of the Cross Trail since last spring. Using grants the City received from the State Department of Transportation and the Federal Lands Access Program, a Rasmuson grant and Sitka Trail Works donations, 1.25 miles of new trail is now complete.
Sitka Trail Works has begun construction of Phase 5 of the Cross Trail Multimodal Pathway. Approximately one mile of multimodal trail will be constructed to replace the lower portion of Gavan Hill Trail. The new section of the Cross Trail will share a trailhead with the Gavan Hill Trail at the end of Baranof Street. The Phase 5 pathway will provide access to the Cross Trail and Gavan Trail from downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. The lower part of Gavan Hill Trail will be abandoned.
For further information, please contact Lynne Brandon, CBS Parks and Recreation, at 747-1852 or Sitka Trail Works at 747-7244.
