Singing River Trail extending to the shoals

FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – Members of the Singing River Trail Group came to Florence on Wednesday to talk about expansion in the area and hear from Shoals residents.

The Singing River Trail is a project to create an outdoor trail over 200 miles long that stretches from The Shoals to Huntsville. Dr. John Kvach, executive director of the Singing River Trail, told News 19 he wanted to bring something new and exciting to Shoals residents and tourists.

“Think of it as a low hanging fruit that brings tourism, the outdoors, [and] hospitality together,” Kvach said. “If we’re looking to attract new people to northern Alabama, we need to bring them here.”

He added that he hopes they will be able to convince the community that this project will be worthwhile as they move forward and identify places to continue expanding the trail.

The meeting was open to the public to give residents an opportunity to learn more about the project and provide feedback. The meeting included presentations and other information activities to keep the public informed.

Kvach told News 19 he hopes to have a similar reunion again soon.
