New walking trail takes visitors on tour of airport grounds


Maintenance for the path shouldn’t be too difficult, he said, as the area is mowed regularly. A few areas with small holes need to be touched up, but that should be fixed soon, Lawler said.

As the path is made of grass and hilly in places, it isn’t suitable for bike-riding, except perhaps mountain bikes, Lawler said. Walkers are allowed to bring dogs along, so long as they don’t go near any planes.

Walking trails such as these are one of the most in demand recreational facilities in the state, said Lawler.

The Danville Airport and authority are doing as much as they can to have a positive impact on the community, and offering this walking trail is an extension of other efforts such as the airport’s flea markets and car shows, Lawler said.
