RSI employees are always working hard and impacting our community in a positive way. On Saturday October 17, RSI participated in a Trail Build day in Oak Ridge, TN coordinated through the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club (AMBC). The end result was a beautiful 1.3 mile trail in the North Boundary greenway for everyone in the community to enjoy!

The planned 1.3 mile multi-use “Sinkhole Trail” had been 3 years in the making and was finally ready for construction thanks to the Legacy Parks Foundation (LPF) and members of the Oak Ridge community. The trail is named the “Sink Hole Trail” based on some natural geologic features in the area. The trail ties into some existing single track trails (Big Oak Trail) and gravel roads in this multi-use easement. The trail is being built to be enjoyed by trail hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and general nature enthusiasts. This ‘little’ trail is significant to the Oak Ridge community as it is the first to be completed via a trail easement with LPF, and is a model that participants hope will be repeated time and time again. The trail build was co-sponsored by AMBC, Knoxville Bike Company, UCOR, RSI, and Yee-Haw Brewing.

Great job to all who participated in building a brand new trail in North Boundary!
