KRT Celebration on April 24, 2022

Join us as we celebrate the success of the KRT!

 

As a Kickapoo Rail Trail Supporter, we would like to extend a special invitation for you to join us at the KRT Celebration event on Sunday, April 24, 2022, from 1 pm - 4 pm. This event will celebrate the work and efforts of all volunteers, community groups, donors, and supporters of the Kickapoo Rail Trail. 

The event is open for everyone to attend as well and will be located along the KRT in the Village of Oakwood from 1 pm - 3 pm with vendors, local community groups, and organizations available, as well as live music entertainment and light refreshments. 

At 3:30 pm, there will be a dedication and celebration event on the KRT Trestle Bridge. 

Parking will be available in several locations at either the Oakwood KRT parking lot across from the Oakwood Village Hall or the KRT Trestle Bridge parking lot with participants walking or biking to Oakwood. There is also the option of parking within Kickapoo State Park and then biking or walking into Oakwood.  Groups of cyclists will be organizing group rides from St. Joseph and Urbana to Oakwood as well. If you are interested in connecting with these group rides, please contact the Prairie Cycle Club website at www.prairiecycleclub.org/

More details will be announced as we get closer to the April 24th KRT Celebration event. For updates and more information, please visit onekrt.org or follow the Kickapoo Rail Trail on Facebook.
