Rock/Creek and Patagonia have made a $1,000 donation to the Lula Lake Land Trust. The money will aid in the completion of the long awaited “Connector Trail” from Lula Lake to Cloudland Canyon State Park. To date, Rock/Creek and Patagonia have contributed $10,225 toward preservation of this land.
Adelaide Bratcher, development head for the Lula Lake Land Trust, explained that final approval with Georgia government agencies is still pending, but with donations such as this one from Rock/Creek and Patagonia, progress toward permanent access is evident. The most recent donations of time and money resulted in the construction of the High Point Trail and its use last year in the inaugural Rock/Creek Lookout Mountain 100K race, which also became the longest trail race in Tennessee history. This race offered a venue for runners to see the beautiful vistas and appreciate the wilderness areas that the Lula Lake Land Trust is striving to connect and protect.
