Mayor Geertz and members of the Nichols Betterment Committee have already done some work to the trail, flattening out much of its gravel foundation and removing weeds.
Future plans for the trail were outlined by Mayor Geertz at a special meeting September 12:
- Reconnect Nichols’ portion of the HNT to West Liberty's portion in the north and Conesville's portion in the south.
- Apply a sealant to the rock, making it less dusty.
- Install cement and educational spots along the path that discuss the history of Nichols and its families.
