Last week we were treated to an informative and entertaining program by Julie Smith, Executive Director of TRED Rome Floyd. Julie assumed this role in August of 2020 following her role as volunteer President since TRED’s founding in 2012.

Julie gave us a history of TRED’s progress since its founding in 2012, and an update on the future of the Redmond Trail. To see a video of Julie explaining the importance of this short, but strategic trail, click HERE.

Julie also told us about some of the other trails in Rome and Floyd County, including the Jackson Hill Trail, GE Trail, and the Kingfisher Trail, which is used primarily for transportation.
