The L&PS Rail Corridor Trail has been getting lots of attention since its opening. It has already prompted rave reviews from many individuals and families who have gotten out to walk, run and cycle the path. The project was also enthusiastically applauded by a local group, Citizens for Active Transportation (C4AT) as a giant positive contribution to getting people moving.
