EASLEY — The plan for the proposed Doodle Trail between Pickens and Easley will be unveiled at 6 p.m., Thursday, May 1, on the campus of Tri-County Technical College on Powdersville Road in Easley.

Alta Planning will present the master plan, including renderings, phasing and budgets.

There will also be trailhead rendering available for both the City of Easley and the City of Pickens.

The Doodle Rail Trail is an attempt to preserve the rail trail that once carried workers between the two towns in the early part of the 19th century.
