Rue Access and Development Fund - 2019

$1,000 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 8 people in 15 months
Bridges across streams, staircase down steep hillsides are crucial for accessing the Sheltowee Trace NRT.  In 2019, the STA is taking on its most ambitious schedule of construction projects in the Big South Fork and the Daniel Boone National Forest.  

On the schedule, in addition to the regular trail maintenance we are looking at finishing the Fall Branch Bridge Project in Big South Fork.  Replacing the staircase at Mouth of the Laurel.  Maybe get a privy at Cotton Patch Shelter.  How about a reroute of the Trace off a road that takes you to some amazing places and adds 10 more miles to the Trace.  Or how about a simple reroute of less than a quarter mile that takes you off a road.  Or maybe we get a bridge replaced at Catfish Creek this year.  These projects are designed to enhance your trail experience and enable you and your family to safely enjoy the Sheltowee Trace.

We have seen a growth in the number of users coming to the Trace which is good.  But it also places a new demand on the land managers and the STA to maintain the Trace to the highest standards.  With your donation to the Rue Fund, we are able to have the resources on hand to see these and other routine projects completed. 

Your tax deductible donations here to the Gary Rue Access and Development Fund will go toward these vital improvements to the Trace.  Thanks for your support.  We'll see you on the Trace.

Thanks so much to these first donors who have helped us match the first $500.00 matching gift by giving $700.00. So in our first week of our Spring Rue Trail Access and Development Drive we have raised $1200. That is amazing. We now have funds on hand for that leaning bridge on Catfish Creek to be moved, secured and rebuilt later this late spring or early summer.


We now are hopeful that you maybe will be that next donor who will give a matching gift to our "trails drive". Your $500.00 or $1,000.00 challenge gift will help us raise an additional $1,000.00 to go toward further trail development between Burnt Mill Bridge and Brewster's Bridge. If you can help with a "matching gift challenge donation" please let us know.


In the meantime, if you could help us continue to reach our goal with a gift of $25 or $50 please give today. The weather will turn warm and we need to have the resources on hand to be ready to move on our "trails" project list.


Thanks so much to each one of you for your generous support.
