New Hiking Trail to be Discussed
The Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association and Rockingham Conservation Commission are organizing an informational meeting for people interested in the possibility of creating a new trail from the western edge of the Town of Rockingham, near Route 35 in Athens, to Saxtons River. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 27, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., at Main Street Arts, 35 Main Street, Saxtons River. Objectives of the meeting will be to examine large maps of the area, gain input from attendees and local residents, and consider options for an extension from present Pinnacle Association trails. The long-term vision will see the trail connect to Pinnacle’s Bald Hill Preserve and from there to the new river park in Bellows Falls. Organizers hope to recruit volunteers at the meeting to serve on a trail connection committee. For details, call Silos Roberts at 802-869-1388 or visit windmillhillpinnacle.org.
