Curious about new segments of the Bristol Trail Network? Join us for a walk on Monday night 7/22 at 7:00 pm. Meet behind the Fire Station. (If you drive, please use the spaces marked for “Visitors” behind the station).
We’re going to walk the .4 mile loop around the future business park and then walk down to the River Bend segment, exiting through the Coffin Factory loop at South Street (.8 mile). You can then either return the way we came back to the fire station, or walk back through the village on the sidewalk.
The first part, around the business park, is a super easy walk: clear path, zero elevation gain, nothing tricky. The second part, down around the bend of the river, is quite a bit more challenging with numerous ups and downs and some tricky footing. It is still possible in sneakers, though boots are better. I wouldn’t characterize it as a difficult hike, but it is not an easy walk. It will probably take about an hour to get to South Street, depending on how fast we go and how much we chit chat.
You are welcome to join us for both sections, or you can do the first part (15 minutes) and skip the second, steeper more vigorous part. Either way, I’ll be excited to have you join us to enjoy the beautiful woods right here in the village.
Feel free to email me if you have questions. Also, if you’d like to explore Bristol Trail Network sections but can’t make this date, email me when you want to go and I’ll see if we can get a volunteer to go with you! We are eager to set up more walks to show folks the trail!
And of course, let me know if you’d like to be added to our mailing list to receive info about the BTN or to participate in future trail work.
