Celebration held for first phase of CVG loop

BOONE COUNTY, KY (FOX19) - The Friends of the CVG trail held an event Saturday morning in celebration of the first 2.5 mile segment of the CVG loop trail. The new segment is part of a proposed 20-mile path around the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport that would be a multi-use path for runners cyclist and others that winds around the entire airport.

According to the Friends of the CVG trail the path would provide a "safe environment for recreation and transportation connecting people around Boone County."  Friends of the CVG trail also say the trail could provide an inexpensive transportation route for employees at CVG as well as an expansive recreational area for the surrounding community to enjoy.

Saturday's event featured refreshments for participants, as well as information regarding the next steps for the trail.
