Nashville hiking trail gets $60K Meijer donation


Brown County residents who've spent a decade raising money for a hiking trail through the tourist town of Nashville have received a $60,000 grant from Meijer stores for the path's next section.
The Meijer family's donation will help build a 1.1-mile stretch of Salt Creek Trail, the first segment of which opened in November.
Salt Creek Trail Committee vice-president Tom Tuley says the money comes just in time for organizers of the trail for hiking, jogging and biking to get $50,000 through a Howard Hughes Legacy Challenge Grant.
Tuley tells The Herald-Times the combined $110,000 is "big money for us."
Salt Creek Trail will eventually run 3.7 miles through Nashville to connect residents and tourists to hotels, a grocery store, Brown County State Park and the local YMCA.
