The Piltzville Trail is the first of many trails envisioned for the Bonner Milltown area. Residents whose property bordered the trail had misgivings when the project was first proposed, but as trail construction progressed they became some of the trail's most enthusiastic advocates.
The community celebrated the Piltzville - Rustic Road loop with a Super Fun(d) Run on April 18, 2009.
This project was largely built with funds from EPA and from the federal transportation act which were secured by Sen. Max Baucus. The Milltown Redevelopment Working Group submitted a grant proposal to Sen. Baucus on behalf of the County.
