Thanks to $50K in jumpstart grant funding from the Future For Oneonta Foundation (FOF), a non-profit whose mission is to improve the quality of life in Oneonta, NY through grant awards and strategic planning, another section of the Oneonta Susquehanna Greenway Trail is complete and ready for use. It's the Mill Race Trail and the best part is that the section of the trail through Oneonta's Neahwa Park is paved and therefore more inclusive for those who are wheelchair-bound. Below the trail is marked to show you where the new trail runs.

The paving stops in Neahwa Park near I-88. After that, the trail crosses over the highway and picks up near the I-88 onramp (heading east) and onto the New Island trail which is part of the Susquehanna Greenway trail.

The trail through the woods that runs along the creek (mill race) behind Damaschke Field is beautiful! In the opposite direction, the trail runs along the creek and into Catella Park when it ends up meeting I-88 and connecting to the New Island Trail. Below are some photos from Alan Cleinman, Chair of the Board for the FOF.
