Connecting to Rivendell Trail
 – 
Rivendell Trail is 36 miles long; Rivendell Trail Association has a paid staff person, who works in the school, and .2 time isdevoted to Trail-Related Work. The trail association has 85 members.Membership fees include $5 – student; $25 – individual; $35 – family. They alsohave donation boxes at their trailheads. Marcia & Kevin discussed thepossibilities for connecting the Rivendell Trail with the Wright’s MT Trails. Kevinsuggested that the most feasible connection might be from the Iron Bridge tothe Route 25 end of “Rube’s Route. Another possible connection might bealong Town Road 28 to Hackett Hill to Chelsea Road. Private landowners whoallow public trail access cannot be sued under VT Law. We decided to revisitthis idea after some time to consider it.
