MYPATH VIDEO– A 2015 introduction to the MYPath Trail System produced by Adam Bowen with aerial photography by Tyler Hammond of Skysource Imaging.
What is MYPath?
The MYPath Trail System, when complete, will be a system of sidewalks and trails in and around Spencer that will connect McCormick’s Creek State Park to the east with the town of Spencer, and the Owen County Family YMCA to the west. MYPath is a community partnership between The Owen County Community Foundation (OCCF), the Owen County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD), and the Owen County Family YMCA. Also involved in the planning process are the Town of Spencer, McCormick’s Creek State Park, and Owen County.
The project began in 2014 and continues to grow thanks to community support. It will provide many recreational opportunities for both residents and visitors.
The Riverfront Trail is the first stretch of trail to be open to the public. As MYPath grows and evolves, stay tuned for updated routes and connection trails.
The goal is to create a multi-use trail system to enhance recreational opportunities and improve safety on major walking routes for the people of Owen County. The trail system will encourage healthier lifestyles, more children walking to school, and more older citizens enjoying the use of upgraded sidewalks.
