First bridge crossing.jpg

Milton Frye Nature Area

On June 16, 2018 Rev. Jennie Anderson dedicated the new trailhead and bridge at the back of our property.  The Norwich Trails Commission reconstructed the sign at the entrance with a map of the Milton Frye Nature Area and "Rules of the Trail".  The Upper Valley Trails Alliance supervised the reconstruction of the bridge and mapped out a new spur trail that will lead back to the Memorial Garden.

Volunteer Help

The Marion Cross School 6th graders in the Experiential Learning/Community Service helped carried the lumber,  Brie Swenson and the MCS Root Rockers running kids worked hard on the project. Hypertherm added volunteers one day.  Jonah, Daniel and Jon Felde helped clear the trail.  Thanks  to one and all.
