The Platte River Trails Trust is excited to unveil the newest trail connection in Casper! The Morad to Mountain Plaza Shopping Center Trail will allow trail users to utilize the trail in Morad Park, travel safely across CY avenue into to the Mountain Plaza Shopping Center and destinations on the west side of Wyoming Boulevard including the Wolf Creek neighborhood and more.
This latest trail addition to our community trail system further fulfills our mission to develop a network of safe and separate trails that contribute to our community’s non-motorized transportation options by bringing the Platte River Trail, the spine of our community system, closer to neighborhoods, shopping areas and schools. The Platte River Trails hopes this newest trail connection will serve as Phase I of a connection into the Wolf Creek neighborhood, providing residents even more access to the area amenities by foot or bike.
This project was made possible with a grant from the Wyoming Department of Transportation: Transportation Alternatives Program, funding raised privately by the Platte River Trails organization and Optional One Cent #16 funds. We are grateful to several property owners who partnered with us to create this important addition to our community trail system including the Murie Audubon Society, Chaz Farnham, Hilltop Bank, and Jake and Karri Spears. As with all trail projects the Platte River Trails relies upon local engineering and construction firms, WLC Engineering and Knife River Construction, to bring our vision to life.
We are thrilled to further connect the community in west Casper, providing safe access to our trail system and businesses in the area. Please join us on Wednesday, September 15th at the intersection between Morad Park and the Walmart Business access road on CY Ave. We’ll be cutting the ribbon on this new trail section at 11:30 am just north of the stoplight.
