What has 3600 feet and weighs 169 tons?” asks a riddle on the bulletin board at the Frink Park kiosk. The answer is the reconstructed Big Loop Trail—the route for this tour. The tonnage refers to the mountains of gravel and other materials used to widen and improve a trail that was once close to impassable. Although visitors don’t come here to see gravel, the riddle is testimony to an amazing volunteer effort that provides inspiration for others and begs the question, “What’s happening in my own neighborhood park?”
