Simple Pleasures

If you have driven west bound on I-70 coming from east of Cambridge, you may have noticed the new restroom facilities at the entrance to Moore Memorial Woods.  These were built by Jack Warne Construction, replacing a very "rustic" wooden privy which had seen better days.  The road into the woods that leads to the top of the first hill, along with three parking lots around the pavilion have been regraded and freshly graveled.  Some much needed culvert and drainage work was done along the road, as well.  Tom Lehotay did this work.

Over the next few months, work will be done to widen, improve, and generally make the hiking trails at the woods more accessible and educational.  The pavilion also needs some repair and upgrading, and it is hoped that a potable water supply can be developed from the existing water well.  This will require an upgrade to the electric supply as well.

The ultimate goal is to make Moore Woods a better place for the Guernsey County community to enjoy and learn from.  The Woods was donated to the district to be used to educate the public about woodlands and forest management.  There is no better way to learn about a subject than to get out and immerse yourself in it.  It is our hope that you will take advantage of the woods.  Stay tuned for more info about the improvements at the Woods!
