WORTHVILLE — About two dozen people showed up on a rainy Saturday, March 25, in Worthville for a ribon cutting for the new Worthville Road Boat Access.
Randolph County Trail Coordinator Mary Joan Pugh led the ceremony. She noted that not is the Worthville location the first boating access to the Deep River in Randolph County, but also for a paddle trail, which is part of North Carolina’s Year of the Trail initiative, which celebrates North Carolina’s trails, greenways and blueways.
The project was jointly funded by the City of Randleman with a Recreational Trail Program grant and NC Wildlife Resources Commission.
Also on Saturday, a video crew was scheduled to film at various Randolph County locations as part of the production of a Year of the Trail video sponsored by the Heart of NC Visitor Bureau. The crew was to visit not only the Worthville access point, but Creekside Park in Archdale and at the Franklinville Rail Trail section on the Deep Rive Rail Trail, and at the Tot Hill Farm Trailhead for the Uwharrie National Recreation Trail.
