Riding will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 24, and there will be a Free Will Donation Chuck Wagon Feed, open to the public, at 6:30 p.m., courtesy of Hy-Vee Food Store and Tyson Retail Deli of Cherokee. All proceeds will go to the Martin's Access Addition Project.
On Sunday morning, there will be a "potluck" breakfast at 8 a.m., followed by a trail ride at 10:30 a.m.
There is limited camping available, so campers are advised to "call before you haul."
For more information, contact Ginger Walker at 712-225-6709 or Duane Heschke at 712-434-2361, or 712-229-8804.
Walker, the director of the Cherokee County Conservation Board, said the fund drive for the Martin's Access Addition is getting very close to reaching its goal, and felt the chance for people to ride the trails at Martin's and enjoy the beautiful scenery there would give them a chance to see what is at Martin's now, as well as hear about what will be added.
According to Duane Hescke, the trail ride will be dependent on the condition of the trails, as excessive rain can make them unusable. He advises everyone to please call Walker at 712-225-6709 to check on the status of the ride.
The Chuckwagon Feed and festivities and Sunday's potluck breakfast will go on as scheduled, "rain or shine."
