Friends of the West River Trail

West River Trail, Autumn 2016Organized in 1992, the Friends of the West River Trail (FWRT) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the establishment of a 36-mile scenic trail through the West River Valley – eventually linking Brattleboro, Dummerston, Newfane, Townshend, Jamaica and South Londonderry.

Please spread the word about the West River Trail to anyone who may be interested in knowing about it, volunteering their talents or making a donation. Thank you!

FWRT’s mission is to:

Develop and maintain a publicly accessible system of paths along the West River corridor for educational, recreational and alternative transportation purposes.

Promote public awareness and enjoyment of the recreational path system and of the history, geology and biota of the West River valley.

Coordinate local, state and federal interests in planning, funding, construction, management and use of the trail system.
