A short trail, marked with temporary paint, signs, or another design method that reaches from the Boott Cotton Mills Museum to the NPS Visitor Center. Along the trail there would be temporary interpretive signs or pamphlets and signs mentioning the walking distance to popular nearby attractions. The exact route would be chosen by the citizens making the project happen.
Such a trail has been discussed by the community for some time. By making a temporary trail, we can test out a route and decide whether it should be permanent. It would also be a low-cost way to do it quick. The trail would encourage visitors to walk instead of drive and may attract the attention of locals who haven't visited attractions. It would help economic development by pointing out attractions.
