The Pennsy trail has seen an increase in vandalization recently. Floral arrangement displays were destroyed near the Titus Creek culvert and light poles were disassembled along the path. Improvements along the trail are new “Drug Free Zone” signage enhanced lighting, increased trail camera locations, increased patrolling and enhanced emergency call boxes.
