NE Texas Trail Enjoyed Record Use In 2020
Hank Pickering of Wolfe City, a supporter of the Northeast Texas Trail, says the NETT had a record number of users in 2020, at least in nearby Lamar County, possibly because people were looking for places to get outside during the coronavirus pandemic. Trail usage with electronic counters in Lamar county for 2020 came to 163,555. 2019 was 130,324. Hank says the NETT is still in the process of seeking status as a state park.
