Westmoreland State Park hosts first Gobble Wobble
The Civilian Conservation Trail hidden behind trees in the Westmoreland State
The staff of the Westmoreland State Park hosted the first Gobble Wobble event this Saturday to kick off the Thanksgiving holiday. Leading the way at the start of the race was soon-to-be top place finisher Cullen Oliver sporting his James Madison University attire.
Park can be often times overlooked by the public. Yet the work by the park staff recently has turned into a much more visible area with new equipment.
Originally designed for pedestrians and bicyclists to stay off the roads, Park Manager Ken Benson, said the staff has worked to revitalize the trail in addition to the other offerings like swimming and kayaking at the state park.
Chief Ranger James Wright, who is also active in running, said this a great opportunity for the public to use the trail for more than just a jog.
“We have about a mile and half trail and it’s very accessible from parts of the park,” Wright said.
The unveiling of the renewed trail was introduced at the first Gobble Wobble event this past Saturday to kickoff the Thanksgiving holiday.
