To celebrate the finished project, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Saturday at Peaks of Otter’s Abbott Lake. WDBJ-7 reports, the new trail and pier is one of five Parkway projects this summer. Members of the Student Conservation Association were on-hand for the occasion. A 100-thousand dollar grant from the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation helped fund the project.
