Mascoma Valley Trails – First Event

December 22, 2009

The Mascoma Trails Project’s first event (Dec. 9th) was a snowy success.  To the adventurous folks of Canaan and Enfield, who came out despite wintery weather to join our discussion on trails in Mascoma Valley, thank you!

Wednesday night’s Trails Forum was a very rewarding event where interested folks had a chance to find out about the great opportunities in the works for trails.

Kurt Gotthardt proudly showed off his map of Enfield Trails. Forum attendees were excited to soon have a clear guide to hiking opportunities in Enfield.

The Canaan Conservation Commission shared ideas for trails in the Mascoma Town Forest, and lively discussion ensued regarding other possible “destinations” off of the Northern Rail Trail.

John Taylor and Peter Helm brought expertise from UV Trails Alliance and UV Land Trust, respectively, regarding working with landowners, the need for volunteers for maintenance and building projects, and large scale trail projects already underway.

The overall need for more publications about trails was expressed, as well as the need for volunteer trail maintainers to keep the existing trails in the Mascoma Valley open. As the Mascoma Trails Project proceeds, we will continue to lay the infrastructure to meet both of those needs.

It was great to meet all of you, and please keep watch for more information about upcoming trails events in the Mascoma region.
