trail system as well as the Boonville Youth Athletic Association ball
fields and the Headwaters Shopping Plaza. The trail also connects to other
trails which are part of the BREIA (Black River Environmental Improvement
Association) trails system. Along the trail you will cross a 19th Century Whipple Bridge and eventually
