Cricket Frog Trail paving and parking update
Thanks to a $20,000 grant from Holder Construction, additional funding from the City of Mansfield, and the in-kind contributions of Newton County and specifically its Transportation Department, the Cricket Frog Trail is now paved from the Alcovy River to Zeigler Road, a distance of 8.16 miles.
Parking is available at Beaver Park east of Mansfield, in a lot about 1-mile west of Mansfield on Hwy 213, and at Old Starrsville Road. At the time of this writing, Newton County is constructing a new parking lot along the Cricket Frog Trail at the intersection of Sunbelt Parkway and Piper Road. It will be completed this fall.
