Walk­ers, jog­gers and cy­clists can find in­for­ma­tion on the East­side Trail and sur­round­ing area with­out miss­ing a beat.

New­ton Trails, a lo­cal trail ad­vo­cacy or­ga­ni­za­tion, un­veiled a new in­for­ma­tion kiosk dur­ing a “rib­bon cutting” on Tues­day.

The ma­te­ri­als for the kiosk, de­signed by Randy Vin­son, were pro­vided by a $1,200 grant from the East Metro Board of REAL­TORS. The kiosk was built by vol­un­teer Rick Me­ich­sner.

“We’re ex­cited to be able to give back to the com­mu­nity,” said Dr. Cyn­thia Davis, Pres­i­dent of the East Metro Board of REAL­TORS. “Sup­port­ing the New­ton Trails al­lows us the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port the vision of de­vel­op­ing an en­vi­ron­ment in New­ton County which pro­motes a healthy, vi­brant, pros­per­ous com­mu­nity.”

The in­for­ma­tion kiosk con­tains trail maps cre­ated with the New­ton County and Cov­ing­ton Ge­o­graphic In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem of­fice and fly­ers on up­com­ing trail events. New­ton Trails hopes to even­tu­ally add an­other kiosk on the East­side High School end of the trial.

“It may be a small thing to cel­e­brate but it rep­re­sents a big move­ment of trails in New­ton County,” said Sara Vin­son, New­ton County Trails Board of Direc­tors Chair.
