The Kilgore Police Department has released a public service announcement regarding the Kilgore trail system: “We are blessed in Kilgore to have our new trail system, and it continues to grow. Due to Covid, it gets a huge amount of traffic throughout the day. The mountain bike trail is being discovered and has a lot of activity too. As a reminder, when you park at the trailhead, be sure to hide or take valuables and lock you car as you exit. We don’t want thieves to find easy targets and break into our cars.”
