The West River Trail is delighted to announce the addition of two new picnic tables along the trail.
One is located on the deck of the I-91 bridge and the other is at the Rice Farm Rd Trailhead, down a little trail towards the river.
Thanks to RiseVT for funding the construction of the picnic tables with a RiseVT Amplify grant. RiseVT’s mission is to support outdoor physical activity and healthy lifestyles for families throughout the state.
The West River Trail relies solely on the generosity and help of volunteers and donations to make improvements and we have a team of folks to thank for making the picnic tables happen. Thanks to Jim Webster (pictured above) for building the tables, to Mark Anderson of Trevett Millworks for donating the white oak lumber, to Jesse Wagner for making the connection for the donation of the lumber, to Jesse and Mark Westa for picking up and delivering the lumber to Jim, and to Jason Cooper (pictured above) for help with delivery and installation.
Check out the beautiful new picnic tables the next time you are out on the trail. Happy Spring!
Great news. Please also keep me posted on trail maintenance days

Thanks Pat! We’ll be sure to post any news about Trail workdays right here. We welcome your interest and participation! Many thanks.
Did you see that we are having an invasive removal work day tomorrow, sunday September 26, starting at 9:30 until about noon? Late notice, but thought I’d let you know. See the website or facebook page for details. Just in case you can come, we’re meeting where the Fox Farm Rd access trail intersects with the main trail, just north of the Riverstone Preserve. And we will be working on the Preserve. Kathleen
