Local Man Creating Hiking/Biking Trail in Dayton
Dayton resident Doug Hinds started work behind the Port of Columbia early this year
DAYTON – A hillside trail being created for hiking and biking behind the Port of Columbia in Dayton is ready for walkers, and may be ready for biking before the end of the summer, says trail creator Doug Hinds.
The trail was started earlier this year by Hinds, who works as the local lineman for Pacific Power, and is doing most of the work on the trail himself. Hinds wants to provide people an alternative to the Touchet River Dike and other area paths.
"It's for the community and people coming into town that don't want to walk the (Touchet River) Dike, or want to hike," Hinds said.
