Glade Spring, VA: Conceptual Hemlock Street Trailhead Design
MetadataShow full item record
In order to enhance the trail experience in Glade Spring, a new trailhead is envisioned near the corner of Hemlock Street where an old house was recently demolished. The Hemlock Street trailhead is in close proximity to several Glade Spring attractions such as Surber & Son Hardware, Town Square Center of the Arts, and the Glade Spring Farmers Market. The goal of this project was to work with the Glade Spring community to develop a conceptual design for a trailhead in downtown Glade Spring. The site is located near the bend in Hemlock Street and behind the Glade Spring Senior Center. Currently, the site is a gravel parking lot. The site will serve as the trailhead once the Salt Trail is completed into the Glade Spring Town Square. The trailhead needs improved parking, a kiosk with a map illustrating the trail and possibly the history of the trail, benches, picnic tables, restrooms, and any other improvements that would improve access and use of the Salt Trail.
