West Branch Times Editorial Makes Trail Suggestions

In a recent West Branch Times editorial, Rob Poggenklass tossed out a few ideas related to cycling and the Hoover Nature Trail:
  • How about asking Johnson County to add a bike path to the Herbert Hoover Highway?
  • How about connecting the trail from the high school to the Hoover Nature Trail, through the cemetery?
The first suggestion is already in the Johnson County Trails Plan, although I am not certain of its priority or funding. Regarding the second suggestion, I think we are seeing that trail connectivity is important for their use and vitality. I'm not familiar enough with the exact route that Rob was suggesting to make any commentary beyond that.
