Wolfensberger Pedestrian Bridge
To provide better connectivity to Philip S. Miller Park and its trail system, the Town constructed a 155 foot pedestrian bridge over Wolfensberger Road, linking Philip S. Miller Park with both Ridgeline Open Space and the Meadows community. The connection creates a continuous 17- mile trail loop on a connected 650 acres of park and open space property. The bridge provides an important link on a future major trail loop through Town, providing opportunities for special events and enhancing the experience of trail users as well as safety concerns of crossing a major roadway. Also included with the bridge construction was the layout and construction of connection trails at both Philip S. Miller Park and Ridgeline Open Space. Park staff designed and built 1,300 linear feet of soft-surface trail to complete the link and open the crossing to the public.
Horses and ATV's are not allowed on the trails.
Dogs are not allowed on the Challenge Hill.
Bikes are not recommended on the Challenge Hill.
