Although the Casey Jones Trail was the first leg- islatively authorized State Trail under new legislation in 1967, three decades have passed with little or no development or attention. Then, five years ago a group of citizens from Murray, Pipestone and Redwood Counties came together to work for development and extension of the Casey Jones Trail. The original designa- tion was for a trail from Lake Shetek State Park to Pipestone, and the group was able to get legislation to extend the trail to the north- west to Walnut Grove and to the south to Split Rock Creek State Park. In the summer of 2002, the group incorporated. Since that time, the FCJT has taken steps towards the preparation of the master plan, produced some new promotional material and are preparing to go back to the legislature for funding this year. The master plan must be completed and approved by the Commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources before and actual development dollars may be spent on the trail. Public input meetings were held on November 5 in Pipestone and Lake Wilson and on December 2 in Currie.
