Chalk the Trail 2021

This past spring, the Baldwin County Trailblazers put on a first-time event, Chalk The Trail, along Eastern Shore Trail at Orange Ave. overlooking Mobile Bay. Pictures of the winners’ art were featured at the May Art Walk on May 7. BCT hopes to make Chalk the Trail an annual event to promote our local trails.
