Community members in PIckens County are upset by repeated damage to the Doodle Trail which connects the cities of Easley and Pickens.
The Sheriff’s Office tells 7New they received a number of calls in the month of March of knocked down or missing fencing on various portions of the trail. Most of these spots have steep drop offs, and those who use the trail are concerned about young children falling over the edge or more accidents occurring.
“Maybe their front tire hits a rock on the trail and they twist and fall that’s extremely dangerous it’s not right, this is our community and we are here to take it back and this Doodle Trail needs help and we are going to stand,” said LA Pink, a concerned community member.
Pink and several other community members are working to put back up the fencing until a permanent solution can be found. If you want to join their cause you can find all the information by joining their Facebook group Friends of the Doodle Trail Community.
Right now the Sheriff’s Office said they have no suspects in the cases and they encourage anyone with information to call them or Crimestoppers if you wish to remain anonymous.
