VW helps fund new trails for bicyclists and hikers

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (AP) - Volkswagen is making friends on two wheels near its new assembly plant in Chattanooga.

With the help of a $10,000 donation from the German automaker, members of the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association are building bike trails near the $1 billion assembly plant.

About four miles of trails have been completed at Enterprise South Nature Park and the group hopes to have 10 miles finished when a city and county park opens Oct. 11.

The trails also will be open for hikers.

The park is on the northern edge of the Volkswagen assembly plant property where the company plans to start making a new mid-size sedan early next year.

Bike association member Barry Smith told the Chattanooga Times Free Press the trails should be appropriate for riders of any skill level.
