The West River Trail is beautiful in all seasons. During the winter months, a walk along the trail and along the shoreline of the Riverstone Preserve can reveal a magical landscape of ice and snow formations. Photos of icicles and icebergs courtesy of Kathleen White and Jim Webster.
A beautiful spring ski along the West River Trail, through the Riverstone Preserve and down onto the river shore. Snow-slides along the cliff edge created hilly terrain on an otherwise flat stretch of trail. Along the river edge, fresh snow covered ice floes, left behind on the banks when the river thawed.

Soon the snow will give way to spring ephemeral wildflowers. Enjoy the trail in all its glorious seasons. Happy Spring!
