Final Phase — Devola Multi-Use Trail

As you can see it will be wide enough to accommodate walkers, runners, bicyclists, strollers and such quite comfortably. The trail is 10 feet wide. The West bridge is the same width as the trail, but the east bridge will be 12 feet wide when completed.

Thanks to a grant of $149,120 from Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and the generosity of several local donors, the Devola Multi-Use Trail (DMUT) is now about 85% complete. If the weather is favorable, the 1.1 mile trail may be finished by the first of next year.

The Trail will be wide enough to accommodate walkers, runners, bicyclists, strollers and such quite comfortably. The trail is 10 feet wide. The West bridge is the same width as the trail, but the East bridge connecting the 821 parking area with the shelter and activity area is 12 feet wide.

Local contributions have been made by the Marietta Rowing and Cycling Club, the Creating Healthy Communities Program of the Washington County Health Department, the Marietta Community Foundation, the Sisters Health Foundation, Dr. Zane Lazer, Dynergy and others. The Recreational Trails sign was donated by Discount Signs & Awnings.

The land on which the trail is being constructed was made available by George and Nancy Broughton.

Work on the Trail was paused on December 12, 2017. Crews will be back on the job in spring of 2018.

After a harsh winter and periods of flooding, the Trail was completed in spring / summer of 2018. Improvements continue to be made.
