Cheyenne Price enjoys a quiet moment out on the Pennsy Trail. The new Eagle Station trailhead on the Pennsy Trail, just west of S. CR 400 W, opened last year as part of a collaborative effort among local boy scouts, master gardeners and trail advocates, all of whom volunteered to create the educational gathering place. Volunteers are needed this spring to continue maintenance and care for the Pennsy Trail.
