Lewis Payne, a member of the Charleston Land Trust, shows where the red-lined proposed trail runs the Chilton property, a nature preserve Robert Chilton gave to the city in 2005. At right, an earlier route through some private back yards is crossed out in pink.
Orange ribbons mark the route of a proposed trail through the six-acre Chilton property, a crescent-shaped hollow between Loudon Heights Road and Norwood Road.
Lewis Payne, a former City Council member from South Hills, has negotiated access agreements with two neighbors of the Chilton property and is working on others.
