Cherokee County BOC approves Blankets Creek parking lot upgrade

Last week, the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners approved a $829,000 dollar contract to expand/upgrade the Blankets Creek Parking Lot. We would like to thank our commissioner Karen Bosch for helping make this a reality.

Construction will start in September. As of now, there will be 15 days this fall where the trails will be closed due to heavy grading and tree removal. These closure days will be during the week and will be reopened on the weekends to accomodate high weekend use.

Stay tuned to the website for construction updates and trail closure dates as they come along.

Here's the recent news article from the Cherokee Tribune about the approval.
