On Saturday, June 22, a mighty crew of Madras families gathered at the bottom of a big on the edge of town called M-Hill. They were here to celebrate the opening of two new TRACK Trails and take the new family activities for a test run. After a brief introduction to the new program, Mayor Richar Ladeby cut the ceremonial ribbon and welcomed families to take a fun-filled hike to the top of M-Hill.
Using the new activity brochures, the kids made their way up the hill, stopping to take in the scenery and make discoveries. At the top, all the hikers were rewarded with far ranging views overlooking the city of Madras and of Mount Jefferson towering above the landscape to the west. Best of all, the adventure doesn't end there. The M-Hill TRACK Trail is one of two TRACK Trails in Madras. The second trail takes hikers down Willow Creek Canyon to explore a completely different landscape.
Be sure to check out both trails as well as the three TRACK Trails in nearby Prineville.
