The end of the 2018-19 school year is quickly approaching, leaving teachers and staff eagerly looking for new and exciting end-of-year trips. They didn’t have to go far this year to reward their extra circular groups/classes with something fun. The Buffalo Creek Trail in Dundon has stayed busy with the area schools taking part of the tourism excitement blossoming in Clay County.
Lizemore Elementary used this adventure as a reward for all of its 30+ day attendees in the after-school program. The kids enjoyed being outside on the trail and seeing all the views the trail provides.
H.E. White’s 60+ day after school attendees rode the trail this past week, and each kid was amazed that the tracks were once used for real trains. They were excited to be outside and enjoyed the scenes and the history of the county.
Clay County High school students in Melody Osbourne and Patty Coulter’s class decided to use this trip as a fun day trip to explore the trail. The students witnessed the natural beauty of the waterfalls and took full advantage of terrain on the trails.
