Riverstone Preserve Trail

Riverstone Preserve Trail

West River Trail, Riverstone PreserveI walked on the new Riverstone Preserve trail yesterday, along the shoreline, that the VYCC crew created.  It’s lovely!  But I missed the new steps!  Are they hidden?
Here’s an invitation to come out on the West River Trail and find the mysterious new stone steps.  When you find them, let me know where they are!

If you’re out on the trail this gorgeous sunny summer morning for the monthly I-91 Bridge Project Trail Talk, why not continue on to see the beautiful stone steps created earlier this summer by the VYCC crew.

Thanks again to the crew from the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC) for their hard work building the new steps at the Riverstone Preserve on the lower section of the West River Trail. Beautiful work! Thanks to Alex Wilson for the photos of the steps and to Jason Cooper for the crew photo.

A huge thanks to the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps crew for their good work on the West River Trail.

Posted on behalf of Alex Wilson: A few weeks ago, it was such a nice day that I decided to bike into work on the trail. I spent a while with the VYCC crew and checking out the new trail along the river in the Preserve. The new trail along the river in the Riverstone Preserve will be a better trail for walking than biking, since it’s pretty twisty. About a thousand feet of new trail represents about a day-and-a-half of work. Work that day included raking, gathering stone, and constructing steps for the access down to the water. Also pictured is a Canada Lily from the protected part of the Preserve. It was nice to see five or six of these beautiful, branching lilies in the Riverstone Preserve.
