Benton County Natural Areas and Parks will continue its efforts to form partnerships to enlarge the County’s trail program, if citizens continue to express their support for trails. Current projects include connecting Jackson-Frazier trails with other trails in the area. New trails in Beazell Memorial Forest are planned as well. For a county-wide view, see the trails plan map.
