Hoodlebug Trail at Yankeetown

The area shown here is a part of Center Township known as Yankeetown. There are two theories for the name: (1) the area was settled by New Englanders from Maine who came to work in the local sawmill, and (2) some former residents served as 'Yankees' in the Civil War.

For our trail maintenance crew this is one of the more challenging areas to maintain with roads on both sides of the trail and houses nearby.
