Supporters and people interested in learning more about a proposed rail trail linking eight counties are encouraged to attend a meeting coming up this week in Versailles. The plan would create the Rock Island Trail over several miles of what used to be the historic Rock Island Railroad.
That’s Rock Island Trail Executive Director Greg Harris, who says the trail will pass through parts of Morgan and Miller counties. Missouri State Parks is holding public meetings to gather input before deciding whether to accept the donation and complete the trail. The meeting in Versailles will be held Tuesday at 5:30 at the Morgan County Public Library.
